Asian MBA Leadership Conference

There are three things I personally gained through the 2016 AMBA conference: 1) external networking opportunity - it's a great opportunity to get to know MBA students from other top business schools around the country, and expand my current professional network; 2) Fisher CBPA bonding opportunity - this is a valuable chance to strengthen the relationships with the rest of the Chinese Business Professional Association members; 3) company relations - even though the employers at the recruiting event did not match my background and career directions, it's still a worthy experience to present Fisher to some of the employers to build future employment relationships. Overall, it's a great relationship building experience for me."

MBA Veterans Conference

I am glad that I had the unique opportunity to attend the MBA Veterans Conference in Chicago. As a first year MBA student, I found the conference extremely helpful in networking with veteran recruiters from some very respectable companies. Too often we veterans find challenges in translating our military experience into marketable civilian skillsets. This conference not only allowed me to meet with recruiters that understood how my military background can add value to their company, but they also were willing to work in assisting me in my resume wording and job search. I could tell that the veterans recruiting at the conference had an active interest in wanting to see us find careers. Definitely a worth-while experience and one I hope to take advantage of next year.”

Attending and volunteering at the 2016 NBMBAA Conference in New Orleans was an incredible opportunity. Although the conference is very large, I was still able to have meaningful one-on-one interactions with top company recruiters in a way that I likely would not have had I not attended. Not only did I learn more valuable information about companies that I was already interested in, but I also enjoyed learning about great companies that I did not know much about prior to the conference. And to top everything off, I left New Orleans with an internship offer from Ford! Overall, I am glad that my attendance at the conference was successful and that I was able to help represent the first-year Fisher MBA class this year!”

Attending the 2016 NBMBAA Conference in New Orleans was one of the best experiences I’ve had during my time at Ohio State. I attended having already accepted a post-grad job offer, but attending the conference allowed me to have conversations with the admissions teams at many top tier MBA programs. Those conversations — with Harvard, Yale, and Kellogg — have led to ongoing relationships that will help me explore my MBA choices after I have a few more years of professional experience. If I had not attended the conference, I would not have been able to have those one-on-one conversations and get to know MBA admissions teams at a personal level."

The experience at NAWMBA 2016 at Stamford, Connecticut was transformational and amazing. I had the chance to meet up with MBA fellows across the nation, interact with distinguished and inspired guest speakers, and get the practical advices for personal and professional development. The content of conference was customized and focus to women empowerment which is very relevant and intimate. I appreciate the connection we made and the motivation we created together. Definitely the experience at NAWMBA would be one of the best conferences during my MBA.”

Prospanica was a great opportunity to network with other Hispanic and Latino professionals. I was able to make really good connections that will certainly help me in the future towards my career aspirations. The event did a great job in promoting diversity in the workplace as well as Hispanic/Latin culture. I would like to thank the Office of Diversity personally for offering FGLA the funding to attend.”

I came into the NABA conference not knowing what to expect. I wasn't an accounting major so I didn't think I would get any interviews or that companies were looking for HR majors. However, when I got to the conference, I was proven wrong. First, I received a scholarship along with four fellow undergrad students, which was a blessing. Then, I landed an interview with KeyBank who was hiring for an HR internship. I met countless students and professionals from different schools and companies. I went to technical sessions that were very involved and helped me with my soft skills. Overall it was a great experience and I love the mission to "Lift as we Climb", everyone there seemed to live up to it."
