Have you decided to get an MBA, but wish you had a guide through the application process? Stay on track with Forté MBALaunch. This 10-month program provides a structured road map for applying to business school, including step-by-step application guidance and supportive peer groups.
MBALaunch offers live virtual events that will keep you connected and engaged as you build your best MBA application. The program begins in mid-January with a kickoff event where you will discuss personal branding, get insider information about the application process from a panel of admission representatives, and hear from an MBA alumna on how the degree changed her career trajectory. Following the kickoff event, you will participate in weekly webinars and attend monthly virtual peer group sessions.
Have questions? Join us October 5 for a live MBALaunch Info Session webinar. MBALaunch staff will share in-depth program information and answer your questions.
LET'S GET STARTED
Forté MBALaunch provided me with a solid foundation at the start of the application process, teaching me impactful ways to share my story. Additionally, my peer group was a constant source of support and encouragement throughout the process, from reading essays to celebrating admissions decisions with me long after the official program had ended.
