We are excited to share a new opportunity for students to pursue business coursework at the Foster School of Business.


In response to high unmet demand for business classes from students across the UW, Foster is now offering a Business Minor!  We created five core business courses (delivered virtually) designed for non-business majors.  Inaugural faculty members for these core courses are three 2020 Faculty of the Year award winners as voted by students, so students will be learning from top Foster faculty members.


The Business Minor is launching in Autumn 2021.  It is an open minor, so all advisors may submit the Change of Major/Minor form to declare students, effective for Autumn 2021. 


MKTG 305: Essentials of Marketing & Sales (5 CR, prerequisite: 45 credits completed, offered virtually)

ACCTG 219: Accounting Essentials (4 CR, offered virtually)
