Hundreds of potential MBA students will deploy to campuses across the country this fall seeking a taste of life in business school. Business schools — including The Consortium’s 18 member schools — typically host diversity events, which are often weekend-long affairs. They draw prospects to campus and show off the variety of students, faculty and alumni they would encounter.
“Last year, we welcomed over 200 prospective students to campus for a day of networking, diversity panels, interactive workshops and presentations by both admissions and career management staff,” notes the website for the University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business.
We’ve compiled a list of campus awareness/diversity weekend events. As we get more, we’ll be sure to add them. Click each for a few details. Then, link to the schools’ websites for more. In some cases, the events require students to register in advance.
It’s The Consortium’s biggest event of the year, bringing together 1,300 incoming students, alumni, corporate partners and member school representatives for an intense, five-day series of workshops, community-building sessions, networking events and interview opportunities.
