Financial Services FAST Track Application Process

Forté's Financial Services Fast Track Conference is an elite two-day program for women enrolling in MBA programs and interested in exploring a career in financial services. There is an application to attend and a limited number of seats available.

Eligibility Requirements

This conference is designed for women beginning their MBA program at a Forté sponsor school in 2019. The content targets women who are exploring financial services as a potential MBA career path and introduces them to internship opportunities at Forté sponsor companies. The average participant has five years of work experience.

Applications from continuing or second-year MBA women will not be accepted.


Expenses related to transportation associated with tickets purchased for interstate or intrastate long-distance travel are eligible for reimbursement. Expenses incurred for travel in and around New York (e.g. taxis, buses, ride shares) are not eligible for reimbursement. All expenses must be documented by a receipt indicating full payment.


The travel stipend can also be used to cover costs associated with accommodations related to your stay in New York during the event. All expenses must be documented by a receipt indicating full payment. Accommodations eligible for expense reimbursement include hotel, motel, hostel, and Airbnb. Reimbursements will not be given for non-commercial establishments.

All reimbursements will be processed after the conclusion of the conference and within three weeks of receipt of the following information from the participant:

  • Completed reimbursement application (emailed out at the Conference)
  • Copies of all receipts

Note: you must attend the entire conference in order to be eligible for the travel stipend. You will receive instructions on submitting your expenses at the conference.
