The Chicago Booth School of Business extended an open invitation to both newly accepted MBA candidates as well as prospective applicants to attend one of the multiple diversity events held around the globe during the school's 9th annual Women's Week.
In collaboration with the office of full-time admissions and the Chicago Women in Business Alumnae Network, or CWIBAN, these events are hosted by graduates who open up their homes or host events at local hot spots, explains Joanne Legler, associate director of admissions, on the Booth Insider blog.
Whether large venues or intimate gatherings, the goal of these events is to give prospective and incoming female students a chance to speak to women who have thrived while at Booth, she explains.
"Many women are just starting their MBA research, and what better way to jump start your deep dive into all that Booth has to offer with a small event hosted by those that have already been there/conquered that?" says Legler.
For recent admits, she adds that this is the perfect opportunity to meet your future Booth network, as well as share your wisdom with applicants who are right where you were just a few short months ago.
Women's Week 2013 will be held May 4th through 22nd in cities around the world, including Chicago, London, New York, and Singapore, among others. RSVP for an event near you today.
