Welcome!

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.

Duke is a special and unique place because of its rich diversity, and attending the MBA Women’s Leadership Weekend is a perfect opportunity to sample its culture firsthand. At Duke, Women hold leadership roles in virtually every student organization, directing the course of their MBA education and gaining valuable leadership experience in the process. The Duke MBA is a place where opportunities abound for you to prove your skills, take on new challenges, and make a difference.

The Women’s Leadership Weekend is designed to provide prospective female students with an opportunity to explore nearly every facet of the MBA experience. Our dedicated Admissions team works hand-in-hand with the school’s Association of Women in Business (AWIB) to plan a fun, informative, and memorable experience.

Throughout this virtual event, you will interact and connect with current students, alumni, faculty, administration, and staff, all of whom share a common goal of increasing the number of women in business school and in corporate America.

I encourage you to submit your questionnaire to be considered for the Women’s Leadership Weekend – it is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. But 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 questionnaire!

Best regards,

Stephanie Williams, J.D.
