Get to know The Consortium

We encourage students considering an MBA to explore all of their options when it comes to schools and finances. We hold several events throughout the year at schools around the country for students to meet us and learn about our mission.

Our signature event, for our incoming and current students, alumni, member schools and corporate partners, is our Orientation Program & Career Forum, held early summer.

We also have events throughout the year for current students and alumni.
