Registration for ROMBA 2015 & the LGBT MBA Admissions Summit are open!

Posted by / in LGBTQ BUSINESS STUDENT BLOG / No comments yet


The ROMBA,or Reaching Out LGBT MBA & Business Graduate, Conference is the annual conference of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) graduate business school students – the largest gathering of LGBT business students in the world.

While the organization has grown year-round, the ROMBA conference is our marquee program. Now in it’s 18th conference, ROMBA launched as a conference to provide LGBT business school students with a resource to make connections with other LGBT students and business professionals. The first conference brought together about 100 LGBTQ students. Last year in 2014 over 1,400 students, prospective LGBT MBAs and business graduates, business leaders, and recruiters joined us at the 17th annual ROMBA conference in San Francisco – and we plan to continue building on that success at the ROMBA 2015 in Chicago.

The conference presents a dynamic line-up of industry speakers, workshops and panelists representing all sectors of the business community, from finance and entrepreneurship to non-profits and entertainment & media.

The 2015 Reaching Out LGBT MBA & Business Graduate Student Conference provides future lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender leaders from around the world the opportunity to network, learn, and improve their skills so they will emerge stronger and more confident in the business world. Leading businesses partner with the conference to show support for the LGBT community and recruit top level talent.

It should never go without saying that our corporate partners’ support of our work in the form of partnerships, support and advice, is always gratefully appreciated. Their involvement in helping us educate, inspire and connect LGBT MBA and graduate business students, promotes a robust diversity not only in your workforce but also in our lives.  They have also helped us grow into year-round program offerings for students and professionals including events such as Summer Industry Treks for Admitted LGBT MBAsReaching Out: Brazil, and Queer Women in Business.  With more events to be announced, we are incredibly excited for 2015-2016 and invite you to join us on these new initiatives.
