Add to Calendar

Forté MBA Forums are designed for all women considering an MBA — whether you're a high achiever looking to change careers, a college student planning for the future, or a professional ready to take your career to the next level.

Forté’s free MBA Forums are held annually in various locations to empower women with information about the value of an MBA. You'll make critical connections with admissions reps, MBA alumnae, and students from top business schools in North America and Europe — all while forming an unmatched peer support network. Successful businesswomen representing diverse industries and career stages will also share how their MBAs help them make an impact. And you'll gain exclusive insights to the admissions process.

We’re going virtual this year! Our 2020 MBA Forums will take place online across a variety of time zones to ensure your safety and provide greater access for all women.
