Benefit from the unique format

Imagine an opportunity where you could hear an inspiring presentation and then connect directly with the speaker. This is exactly how the Women & MBA Global Online Event works.

Alumnae and directors of leading business institutions tune in to discuss the trends and challenges of female leadership.

Listen to the talks, case studies, and success stories in real time. Then, join a personal or group video conversation with the speaker.
