For Full-time MBA students, the payoff for enrolling in the program generally comes at the end of two years. Students in Foster's work-compatible MBA programs often don't have to wait that long. The fact that you're enrolled in a Foster MBA program while you work sends signals to employers and colleagues that you're smart and ambitious and committed to professional growth in a way that makes you stand out from your peers. Your ability to speak the language of business and provide solutions based on the knowledge you've recently gained in the classroom make you a more valuable member of the team. You can immediately take advantage of networking with classmates and start using career services offered by the Foster School to discover new opportunities. Foster students Britt East (Executive MBA), Jeremy Hutton (Technology Management MBA) and Olga Shapiro (Evening MBA) describe how earning an MBA has paid off in their careers before they've graduated.
