Session Descriptions

Prospective LGBT MBA Coffee Chats (12:00-2:00pm)

Pre-MBA coffee chats are twenty minute, one-on-one sessions intended for students at any stage of the MBA application process. Coffee Chats are an opportunity for potential students to get in front of current students, alums or members of the admission committee from MBA schools in the ROMBA affiliate program. These sessions are intended for applicants to ask specific, school-related questions and engage with representatives of the schools they intend to apply to. Applicants may be in any phase of the process (including one or two years before applying) but must be knowledgeable about the MBA application process and come prepared with specific questions.

Registered attendees will be able to start booking their coffee chat starting Friday, Sept 5th.

Panel Session: Getting In - A Discussion with Admissions Officers (1:00-2:00PM)

A panel of admissions officers from top MBA programs provide insight into what prospective students should be thinking about when applying. Should they be out on the application? How can they better connect with LGBT Admissions or Student Groups?

Panel Session: Looking Back- Alumni & Student Perspectives (2:15-3:15PM)

A diverse group of alumni & current MBA students look back on their admissions process and their first year: What did you wish you had known? What would you have done differently?

Workshop: What's Your Story? (3:30-4:30PM)
