Forté Rising Star Initiative

Distinguish yourself with a new designation.

Forté's Rising Star designation benefits all majors—and earning it demonstrates your career readiness to top employers. Candidates master a five-part curriculum at their convenience—throughout college or in one year—focused on career exploration, event participation, job searching, networking, and MBA exploration. Your candidacy begins once you join with free college membership and start earning the 500 points needed to add Forté Rising Star to your resume.

Undergraduate women attending the following Forté Rising Star sponsor schools—or who received a special invitation via event participation—are invited to join this new initiative: Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, The George Washington University, Indiana University, New York University, The Ohio State University, University of Michigan, The University of Texas at Austin, William & Mary, and Yale University.
