Foster MBAs collaborate from the start

The first week of fall 2009 brings a new crop of Foster School full-time MBA students to the UW Seattle campus for orientation, leadership preparation and collaboration with “veteran” 2nd-year MBAs. Here’s a taste of what new full-time Foster MBAs are experiencing during the intensive LEAD week.

“Teams are a central part of the Foster MBA Program. During the first year nearly every class requires you to complete work with your core team of 5 or 6 students, whether it’s a research paper, a presentation or both. Foster’s Leadership Fellows program matches a 2nd year student with a 1st year team to provide support and guidance. As 2nd year students, by now we’ve all learned a thing or two, from tools for facilitating a brainstorming session to the secret for cheap parking on campus.”
