Chicago Booth School of Business Gears Up for Women’s Week
As April draws to a close, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business is preparing for Women’s Week, a series of local events held each May for prospective female applicants to the school’s full-time MBA program. This annual event series is co-sponsored by the Chicago Women in Business Alumnae Network (CWIBAN) and Chicago Booth Full-Time Admissions.
Currently in its eighth year, Women’s Week will feature a range of relaxed, casual gatherings hosted by Chicago Booth alumnae in their homes, offices and favorite cafes, as well as on Chicago Booth’s campuses here and abroad. Scheduled in more than 30 cities around the world, the events are designed to give prospective women applicants an opportunity to learn more about the Chicago Booth MBA program from women who have experienced it themselves.
“Women’s Week is a one-of-a-kind event and we hope you’ll join us to learn more about the strength of the Chicago Booth network all over the world,” writes Joanna Zisis, senior associate director of admissions, in a recent post to the Booth Insider MBA Blog. “No matter if you’re just beginning your b-school research or if you will start at Booth in September, everyone is welcome,” she continues.
Women’s Week 2012 will take place from May 6th to 13th, with events in Chicago, Los Angeles, London, Singapore, Beijing and Moscow, just to name a few. For a full list of scheduled cities and dates, click here. All prospective women applicants are welcome, but attendees are asked to RSVP in advance.
