Forté College to Business Leadership Conference

Applications Open Fall 2019

Wherever your dreams take you, you need business skills to get started. Business isn’t an exclusive major or a career track — it’s a universal language that unlocks leadership opportunities.

No matter your major or career goals, Forté wants you to have a solid business toolkit to navigate the professional world. At our College to Business Leadership Conferences, you’ll get:

  • Hands-on experience through business simulations
  • Career prep workshops
  • Networking with peers, mentors, and role models from top companies and graduate schools

The best part? The conference is free to attend! Forté even offers travel stipends so all undergrad women have the opportunity to dream big.


  1. Hands-on simulations let you learn first-hand while tackling problems in teams.
  2. Interactive workshops to build your leadership skills and develop your personal brand.
  3. Get a head start on your internship and job search with insider tips from recruitment experts.
  4. Network with recruiters, executives, and recent grads at the Career Expo.
  5. Meet exceptional peers from around the country. Find your co-founder, investor, next best friend, or maybe even all three!




"What does a career in business really mean? What are my options and who's doing it? What's my path? Not only can you explore what you want to do but you have a whole network of people who can help you understand how to get there."

— Diane Sinti, Director Human Capital Consulting, Deloitte

"The most valuable part of the day was networking with the company reps and getting valuable advice about securing and getting the most out of an internship. As a woman, I really want to make sure I have the right connections and have the ability to choose the right path for me."
