Foster MBA Huddle enables all tailgate attendees, including members and non-members, to socialize and network on Husky Football gamedays. The club is an important part of the Foster experience and brand, and is deeply intertwined in our efforts to support the Foster Challenge for Charity Club (C4C). 100% of proceeds from the season are transferred to C4C, which supports the Special Olympics of Washington and the Boys & Girls Clubs of King County.
Being an MBA student gives you the ability to participate in broader University of Washington events and build school spirit. MBA Huddle enables both of these, while also providing an opportunity to network with current and past Foster students from all MBA programs, and meet their family, friends, children and fur babies. Also, Huddle is typically the first chance for first years to meet returning students in a casual and spirited environment.

The Huddle Story
A longstanding tradition at the Foster School of Business, MBA Huddle is the official tailgate of the MBA program. Huddle occurs near Husky Stadium every home game and is much more than just food, drinks, and football. It has been the primary venue for first years to mingle and get to know each other and the rest of the Foster community, and for returning students to enjoy another year of friendship. Huddle is family-friendly, and one of the few events attended by students across all programs (Full-time, Evening, and Executive), alumni, staff and faculty.
Husky Stadium has recently undergone a beautiful renovation, and this season will be an exciting continuation of the Coach Petersen / QB Jake Browning era at the University of Washington! The Huskies open the season after playing in last year’s National Semifinal game against Alabama, so expectations are high again this year. Go Dawgs!
