In business schools nationwide and in the upper ranks of corporate America, women are underrepresented. The Fuqua School of Business knows it’s time for a change. As a leader in business education, Duke is dedicated to building a diverse learning community that affords each woman the opportunity to reach her highest potential.
The Duke MBA Weekend for Women event offers all prospective female students a unique opportunity to sample Duke in the company of other women and like-minded individuals — from peers considering business school to current MBA students and leading faculty and alumnae. The entire Duke community, not just our female community, is committed to diversity, and thus, the weekend event is open to all individuals, regardless of gender, who share our goals for a diverse community. Student members of the Association of Women in Business host the 3-day weekend, and last year, approximately 20 alumnae attended to share their educational and professional insights.
