Thank you for your interest in learning more about Women’s Leadership Weekend!
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 is committed to providing women a pathway to leadership across the business community.
The Duke MBA Women’s Leadership Weekend event offers all prospective 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, including male allies, and leading faculty and alumnae. This event will be held in person at The Fuqua School of Business, in Durham, North Carolina. Please review the agenda for more details.
The entire Duke community, is committed to diversity, inclusion, and belonging Fuqua values, appreciates, and welcomes students from different backgrounds, cultures, and lived experiences. This weekend event is open to all individuals, regardless of gender, who share our goals. We are committed to creating an environment that lifts and respects all voices, so that our students find belonging and are able to thrive in our community. During this event we will be highlighting the female perspective in business school. We welcome everyone who shares an interest in learning more about women in business at Fuqua.
Student members of the Association of Women in Business (AWIB) host this 3-day event, and last year, alumnae attended to share their educational and professional insights. In addition to customized programming from Admissions to learn more about our programs and how to navigate the application process, AWIB will concurrently offer their annual leadership conference, featuring professional development sessions and socially-geared enrichment activities. Attendees are able to experience two valuable events wrapped into one!
Fuqua’s Commitment to Diversity
We are committed to building and sustaining an intellectually diverse environment by celebrating and valuing diversity in all its forms. We believe you learn the most from people who see things differently than you do.
The Duke MBA experience shapes students’ worldview and fosters a mindset open to different perspectives, new ideas, and innovative solutions. That openness is one of the most valuable legacies we impart and it is why the entire Duke community has a long-standing commitment to diversity. It is also a key reason companies choose to recruit at Duke.
