The 2013 Forté Forums get underway tonight in Chicago. Last week, I shared tips from our webinar panelists on preparing for the forums. Don’t forget to spend a few minutes listening to our webinar, Preparing for the Forté Forums. The panel featured Joanne Legler, Associate Director of Admissions at The University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business and five women who are beginning their MBA programs in the next month. They shared their insights and tips on navigating an MBA recruiting event.
Here are some additional tips shared during the webinar:
1. Talk with other attendees. Some of them may be your future classmates. If not, you’ll be expanding your network. — Tricia Felice, MBA 2014, University of Chicago Booth School of Business, Forté Fellow
2. Have a clear understanding of what you hope to gain from the forum or fair. — Stephanie Cadieux, MBA 2014, The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern
3. After the fair, make a list of what you learned from each school and rank them according to your preferences. — Joanne Legler, Associate Director of Admissions, University of Chicago Booth School of Business
