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.


  1. Cultivate a network of peers
    Connect with hundreds of women who have the same goal as you.
  2. Get intensive GMAT test prep
    Improve your score by 100 points on average with our GMAT study prep that includes two months of webinars and assignments on difficult testing areas, ranging from data sufficiency to reading comprehension.
  3. Build a winning application
    Mitigate your weakness with ten months of application prep and webinars that cover everything from financing your MBA to power networking.
  4. Practice your admissions interview skills
    Schedule advising appointments with admissions consultants and  business school representatives from leading business schools and take advantage of office hours with Forté experts.
  5. Receive immediate feedback
    Draw on the experiences of your peers and MBA alumnae advisors
    when writing your admissions essays and updating your resume.

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.
