2020 LGBTQ PRE-MBA
ADMISSIONS SUMMIT & EXPO
Join us on Oct 10, 2020 in Los Angeles for a day of content targeted at LGBTQ individuals considering applying to business school for an MBA or similar graduate degree.
This Prospective LGBTQ MBA focused content will include panels, intimate coffee chats with admissions officers and students, a cocktail mixer for Pre-MBA attendees and school admissions officers, and the LGBT MBA Admissions Fair with over 30-plus MBA Programs, many of which are part of the Reaching Out LGBTQ MBA Fellowship, a global LGBT scholarship and leadership development collaboration between Reaching Out and top international business schools.
Admission as a Pre-MBA to just the LGBTQ MBA Admissions Summit & Expo is free. If you would like to attend the full Reaching Out LGBTQ MBA & Business Graduate (ROMBA) Conference, a full registration will be available.*
*While much of this event is geared towards those prospective LGBTQ MBAs who are either currently applying to schools or will in the near future, LGBTQ undergrads considering an MBA are welcome to attend.
