Women & the MBA: Workshop for Prospective Women MBA Students
December 5, 2009 from 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to explore life as a
woman in the Smith MBA program!
Women are starting to catch up to their male counterparts in MBA programs as
well as the business community. Getting an MBA is a crucial part in advancing
your career to an executive level; especially for women. It is ever so important
to inform women of their academic options as more and more women apply and
enroll into business schools. Therefore, we have tailored a special event for
women that are considering pursuing an MBA degree.
The Women & the MBA Workshop is sponsored by the
Smith Association of Women
MBA’s and the Keynote speaker will be Dr. Joyce Russell. Dr. Russell will be
discussing the importance of Taking Charge of your Career: Negotiation
Strategies for Women. Dr. Russell is a licensed Industrial and Organizational
Psychologist and has over 20 years of experience consulting with both private
and public sector organizations. Her expertise is primarily in the areas of
leadership and management development, negotiation tactics, executive coaching,
training, career development, and work teams. She also is a Ralph J. Tyser
Distinguished Teaching Fellow in the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the
University of Maryland.
The workshop will also provide you with the opportunity to listen and ask
questions to a panel of women students and alumni discussing the myths of being
a woman in the MBA program. You will also have a chance to meet and network with
other prospective students, current students, alumni, faculty and staff.
Whether your passion is community development,
entrepreneurship or social marketing – an MBA from the Robert H. Smith School of
Business will prepare you for your future goals. At Smith, our emphasis on
globalization, entrepreneurship, and technology prepares all of our graduates to
manage in unpredictable markets.
