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.
This conference is designed for women beginning their MBA program at a Forté sponsor school in 2019.

The average participant has five years of work experience.
Applications from continuing or second-year MBA women will not be accepted.
Applications open February 28, 2019.
