MBA Women International, UMass Amherst
"Empowering Professional Women"
Welcome to our local MBA Women International (MBA WI) chapter at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Our MBA program is proud of its stellar female alumnae and excited about its promising female students,taking our lead from our strong female faculty and local business leaders. In fact, the Isenberg program not only ranks 60th on the U.S. News and World Report "best business schools", but we also boast one of the highest percentage of female students (47% for the class of 2013). Our chapter continues a great tradition of networking with both local women leaders in the Pioneer Valley and leaders in the larger MBA Women International organization.
As our members prepare to enter an ever-changing professional environment, we continue to work to provide programming that meets that challenge. We offer a variety of activities to meet the needs of a diverse student body. Our activities range from professional development workshops to attending national conferences to participating in community service in order to strengthen ties to the community. We also actively work to connect students with alumni for career and internship opportunities. Ultimately our local chapter's mission is to build strong and empowered women MBAs who will become the next generation of accomplished business leaders.
MBA WI UMass Amherst is only getting better and better and we want you to join in our constantly improving programming!
