Congratulations on beginning your MBA journey! In the next few months, you will be exposed to a wealth of information about graduate business education, how to select the right school for you and the application process in general. This will seem like a lot to take in, but you are not on this journey alone. We are excited to work with you through every step.

The first key steps are researching different programs and finding ways to network with the school community. Attending the Annual Duke MBA Workshop is the perfect opportunity to do both. Join us for a weekend filled with great programming and opportunities for you to connect with our community and to learn more about the Fuqua experience.

Duke is a special and unique place because of its rich diversity, and the MBA Workshop will give you the opportunity to sample diversity at Duke firsthand. Our students find that living and learning in a diverse environment helps prepare them for their professional lives in the global marketplace. The MBA Workshop, now in its 41st year, is one of many outreach activities we host to highlight and promote diversity, inclusion, and belonging at Fuqua. During this weekend, we strongly encourage you to connect with members of our community and hear first-hand why they chose Fuqua. I am confident you will quickly learn that what differentiates Duke from all other programs is the importance we place on providing a community where we live our values. We believe that diversity is critical and at the cornerstone of our success is our culture that promotes being your authentic self. Whether you get to know us through the Workshop, an information session, or a coffee chat with our current students, we think you’ll like what you see.

We hope that you will join us in the fall for our MBA Workshop! In the interim, please visit our website for more information about Fuqua and plan to attend other events we have planned for the year. We look forward to learning more about you and to receiving your interest form for the Workshop.

Warm Regards,

Siraj Bah, Program Director of Admissions & Diversity Initiatives
