The following post was written by Rebekah Lewin, assistant director of admissions and financial aid

It’s hard to believe the fall term is well underway already! In the Admissions Office, we are also excited about our November on-campus recruitment event for prospective MBA students, Experience Simon Weekend featuring Women’s Conference programming.

As in past years, we are running these events concurrently and most of the programming is shared, which creates a cohesive environment where our prospective students can get acquainted with Simon and with each other.

Women’s Conference begins midday on Friday, Nov. 10. First, attendees will participate in “The 5½ Beliefs & Behaviors of Highly Successful Women,” a professional development session presented by Maureen Berkner Boyt, founder of The Moxie Exchange Movement, a training and mentoring organization for companies who want to develop, promote, and retain women and create inclusive workplaces.

The afternoon continues with a Women’s Leadership Panel with impressive alumnae panelists:

  • Ileana Chu ’97S (MBA), Managing Director, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey
  • Leslie Falconio ’92S (MBA), Executive Director, UBS Wealth Management
  • Kelly Stone Geer ’03S (MBA), Chief Marketing Officer, Sphero
  • Stephanie Hogue ’04S (MBA), Managing Director of Corporate Finance, PricewaterhouseCoopers

Dinner on Friday is where the Experience Simon Weekend registrants join up with Women’s Conference attendees, and participate in the remainder of the weekend’s programming together. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with faculty, alumni, and current students at dinner.

On Saturday, Nov. 11, our prospective students will fill their day at Simon with the following activities:

  • Alumni and student panels
  • Campus tours
  • An overview from Simon’s Career Management Center
  • A sample MBA class
  • Admissions interview (you have this option as long as you have created an application to Simon)

We are very much looking forward to these events, and November will be here before we know it! We encourage you to register for Experience Simon Weekend or Women’s Conference by Friday, October 20 to be considered for complimentary hotel accommodations for both Friday and Saturday nights and a partial travel stipend (note that you must complete the registration process before requesting a stipend).
