Our current founders (below) pioneered this program after going on Investment Banking Treks to New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle and realizing that the industry lacked representation of both UW students and alumni. Knowing this, they wanted to build a program that would act as a pipeline for high-achieving UW students into these elite banks. Through this, the UW Foster School of Business can further strengthen its presence in Finance and pave the way for future classes to come.
The Foster Accelerator Program will be launching in Fall 2019. It is designed to develop 20-30 high-performing UW students for a career in Investment Banking through a full year of workshops, mentorship from current Investment Bankers, and access to networking opportunities. Applications for the program will be opening up September 16th, 2019.
