Forté Forum: The MBA Value Proposition

Forté Foundation, a consortium of major corporations and top business schools that directs talented women toward leadership roles in business, is putting on a series of events this fall for prospective women MBA students.

Topics presented at the Forté Forums events include:  how to finance an MBA, how to achieve work/life/balance, and how to successfully apply to an MBA program. Forté Forum events are held each fall in the United States and Europe.

This year’s forum series will feature top women business leaders sharing candid advice drawn from their own career experiences. They’ll be joined by admissions officers from the top MBA schools, who will answer questions and give advice about the admissions process. These events include ample time to mingle with corporate and school representatives for one-on-one networking opportunities.
