Practice MBAWhile starting an MBA program is an exciting time, the first semester can be especially challenging when juggling recruiting, classes, social activities, etc. on top of living in a new country or first learning how to engage in a professional business environment. Practice MBA Summer Forum is an annual, intensive residency program designed to prepare MBA students so they can optimize their use of time once in school focusing on highest value-add opportunities – e.g., engaging with faculty, alumni, employers, and classmates, rather than struggling with the steep MBA and new country learning curve. In other words, to start school on an equal footing with more commercially experienced and/or domestic MBA peers.

In 2013, the Practice MBA Summer Forum will be held July 7th – 22nd in Seattle, Washington at University of Washington’s brand-new facility. The program is taught by a distinguished team of MBA alumni and industry and higher education veterans who have unparalleled experience in delivering training and individualized coaching at ‘top-5’ MBA programs. The curriculum is designed to give MBA students a competitive edge in three areas:

  1. Career Development – securing an MBA internship and converting it to a full-time offer, with emphasis on navigating unique aspects of the MBA recruiting process

  2. Academic Preparation – achieving strong academic results, even with minimal prior commercial experience or exposure to business concepts

  3. Language & Culture Orientation – successfully transitioning into a new linguistic and cultural environment; arriving on campus knowing how you conduct yourself in a new professional, academic, and social setting

Tuition, including food and housing, begins at $2,500 and sponsorship and scholarship assistance are available. Also, for international students, we have a special trip organized to Vancouver, British Columbia, for those who will need to exit and then re-enter the U.S. in order to activate their F-1 student visas.

Please e-mail to express your interest, receive information about our weekly Q&A chat sessions, and be invited to register. Act soon as registration will close May 10th.
