‘MBA Peer School Forum’ Launched By 7 Top Programs

The outgoing and incoming student government presidents of seven major business schools, including Booth School of Business, Columbia Business School, Kellogg School of Management, Harvard Business School , MIT Sloan School of Management and Stanford Graduate School of Business, recently gathered at the Wharton School for a three-day President’s Summit.

During the event, the group announced the formation of a student government coalition titled the “MBA Peer School Forum,” which will encourage inter-school cohesion and collaboration and open new frontiers for coordinating student-led initiatives to positively impact business and society.

At least once each year, outgoing and incoming student presidents of member schools will convene for a President’s Summit, where issues on business education and student life will be discussed. The forum also hopes to increase communication and knowledge sharing across all levels of the MBA student bodies.

While many of these business schools have long engaged in such collaborative knowledge sharing at the administrative level, this is the first time the student governments of the seven business schools have agreed to form a structured foundation for such cross-school collaboration.

Outgoing president of the Wharton Graduate Association Akihisa Shiozaki, who conceived of the Peer School Forum structure, says, “We are delighted that our meeting last year has resulted in the formation of a structured inter-school coalition that will benefit generations of future business students. Throughout our dialogues started this weekend, we expect to explore great ideas and opportunities for collaboration.”
