A transformational learning experience in a trending U.S. city
Located in the vibrant seaside city of Seattle, the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington has become a hot attraction for MBA applicants across the country and worldwide.
Conducting admissions assessments with a climbing applicant volume
Three years ago, the MBA program saw an unprecedented 74 percent bump in applicant volume that has stayed consistent since. Foster had a significant jump in prospective students to consider, without significantly more resources.

Screening applicants earlier in the process with Kira
The Kira component of the application allowed the MBA team to better screen applicants prior to their real-time admissions interview. All Foster MBA applicants answer timed video questions as a required component. They went from interviewing up to 65% of applicants “live” (either in-person or via video conference) to closer to 45% of applicants.
The MBA team can focus on interviewing the right applicants for their program
Foster has observed an increase in leadership abilities and participation across all students, but especially among admitted international students. The MBA program has been able to focus their efforts to become far more efficient in their admissions process.
