How do we help you unleash your inner creative beast? Here are some of the things we do together.

  • Workshops – From presentation skills to graphic design, we’ll help you merge your right and left brains to help build skills applicable in and out of the workplace.

  • Community Events – Get to know your classmates by joining us for wine and paint nights, photography outings, and more.

  • No Free Lunch –  Both a party band and an institution, No Free Lunch is the MBA band and a key part of the Foster experience. We play several shows throughout the year, including an annual house party, before we absolutely crush it at the C4C Sports Weekend closing party.

  • Speaker Series – Foster Creative plans to bring in various speakers from the creative community to talk about working with creatives or managing creativity as an integral part of your career.
