Have you decided to get an MBA but don't have the network to stay focused or don't feel prepared enough to make grad school a reality? Get focused with Forté MBALaunch, a 10-month program that pairs women seeking an MBA with a support network and provides a structured roadmap for applying to business schools.
MBALaunch begins with a one-day kick-off event in major cities throughout the United States, Canada, and the UK, featuring intensive workshops with experienced speakers who can help build your MBA candidacy. Thereafter, you'll attend online webinars, advisor meetings, and monthly in-person peer group sessions in your host city.
LET'S GET STARTED
Over 10 months, Forté presented topics in an extremely effective sequence that made me feel super prepared at each step. When it was time to ask my mentors and supervisors to write recommendations, I knew when and how to have those conversations, and what materials to provide in helping my recommenders prepare to tell my story.
