Experience Matters

  • Foster EMBA strives to enroll diverse cohorts comprised of different industries, companies, and job functions
  • Seattle transplants find a Pacific Northwest professional network extremely valuable
  • Foster EMBA students with plans to remain in the Northwest, find that an expanded network beyond their industry or company is an advantage
  • Deke Culp (EMBA 2015) shares his perspective about the Foster EMBA network




The reason I chose the Foster School was really I wanted to be amongst my peers. So I have a long history of-- work history and said I wanted to be around others that had similar experiences. Foster School was really my first and only choice. It's right here in my backyard. So just from a geography standpoint, it was perfect. The fact that it was the best school in the Northwest was a bonus. And really nationally, it's ranked as well so I don't have to travel far to have a quality education with very prestigious professors, and really the students and interactions with my peers here in the Northwest have been fantastic.
