Grow Roots

  • Seattle is a dynamic city – to live, work, and grow
  • Since the Foster School of Business enjoys a top 25 ranking, many prospective students take this into account when doing their MBA research
  • If Seattle is or will be home, Dan Karr (EMBA 2012) provides insights about nurturing your network here



As I started to explore which MBA program I wanted to participate in, I looked at both regional and then the top performing MBA programs across the nation. And I really had a passion for wanting to build my network and grow within the Seattle business community because this is where I wanted to live, and this is where I wanted to work. And when I compared the opportunity here to opportunities, say, in northern California or on the east coast, this just made the most sense for me. And the people that I would be working with were based here in the Northwest developing and building businesses here in the Northwest.
