U.S. Department of Education grant to fund new MBA program features

The University of Washington Foster School of Business Global Business Center has received a $1.55 million grant from the United States Department of Education.

The grant, part of the Department of Education's CIBER fund (Centers for International Business Education and Research,) will allow the Seattle-based Global Business Center to increase its reach by adding events and conferences, as well as funding new features for Foster's MBA programs.

As a result of the grant, MBA students will be able to take advantage of school-sponsored international study trips, global social entrepreneurship competitions, and international case studies.
