The Michael G. Foster School of Business at the University of Washington consistently ranks among the top business schools in the United States—for both undergraduate and graduate degrees. The Foster School serves more than 2,500 students. With one-in-four UW freshman applicants requesting business majors, demand for Foster School business education is significant and growing.

Foster alumni make a difference
A recent survey of Foster School alumni generated more than 8,000 responses. Results? Nearly 3,000 alumni-founded companies, 300,000 new jobs, and $82 billion in annual revenue nationally. Since most Foster graduates reside in Washington, the biggest economic impact is in the Pacific Northwest. Foster alumni are leaders whose success spurs the economic vitality of Seattle, Washington state and the nation.

Building for the future
The Foster School of Business broke ground in 2008 on new, state-of-the-art facilities that open the doors to greater collaboration among student teams, faculty and business leaders. The first new building in the complex, Paccar Hall, opened in 2010, adding more than 125,000 square feet to the School. The second new building, Dempsey Hall, opened in the summer of 2012 and houses the Dean's Office, both Graduate and Undergraduate Program offices, Career Center suites for graduate and undergraduate students, and the Arthur W. Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship. 

University of Washington life
The Foster School of Business resides on the main University of Washington campus. Nestled in Seattle, UW is a sizeable greenbelt alive with Husky sports, museums and theaters, close to cafés and pubs, and a variety of water activities from canoeing and kayaking to boating or walking along the lakes. See virtual tours of UW campus.

Seattle & Eastside locations
Seattle and the Eastside are home to iconic companies like Microsoft, Amazon.com, Boeing and Starbucks. Foster School of Business students have the advantage of accessing area leaders and residing in a cosmopolitan city. Locals enjoy thriving arts and music scenes, homegrown microbrews and wine. Nature lovers hike, ski and paddle around a region famous for waterways and wilderness. Explore Seattle and Washington state.

Vision for the future
While the School of Business at the University of Washington has long been known as one of the top business schools, our goal is to be the best public school in the nation. Plans for the near future include new state-of-the-art buildings, plus expanding faculty and curricula to build upon a legacy of entrepreneurial innovation, strategic research and business leadership.
