University of Chicago Booth School of Business to Host Women’s Week Events Around the Globe
For the ninth year running, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Office of Full-Time Admissions will partner with the Chicago Women in Business Alumnae Network (CWIBAN) to host events in cities around the world for female prospective and newly admitted students. Women’s Week 2013 will take place from May 4th through 22nd, featuring a range of events from Los Angeles to New York to London to Shanghai.
The casual, informal events are designed to help female prospective applicants and newly admitted students learn from Chicago Booth current students and alumnae about what they have done to be successful at Booth and beyond.
“Depending on your city, some events are intimate, while others are quite large,” wrote Associate Director of Admissions Joanne Legler in a recent post on the Booth Insider Blog. “No matter the size or location, CWIBAN and Admissions plan these events each year to give you a chance to speak to a group of women who have been there, done that, and thrived both as Booth students and in their careers,” she continued.
Women’s Week events are timed to catch prospective applicants at the beginning of their MBA research while giving newly admitted students a chance to meet their future Booth alumnae network as well as fellow incoming students.
