The National Association of Women MBAs (NAWMBA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing women into leadership.
We do this by:
• Partnering with universities and corporations which elevate women in business
• Providing professional and leadership development opportunities
• Offering a strong national network for our members
In order to accomplish our mission, NAWMBA focuses our programs in four key areas:
- Education and Professional Development
NAWMBA works to educate students on the career opportunities available and the skills that are necessary to succeed by supporting chapter programs as well as events at the national and international level, including an annual leadership conference. The organization also encourages women to attend and successfully complete graduate business school programs by supporting the formation of school-hosted chapters. NAWMBA encourages the continued education and professional development of women in business by supporting the development of professional chapters and the professional development to strengthen the leadership skills of our members.
NAWMBA encourages mentoring relationships between members. With our program we connect mentors and mentees from our professional and student membership.
NAWMBA provides networking opportunities for students and professionals with schools, organizations and companies that are committed to the development of women's roles in business.
NAWMBA facilitates increased communication and collaboration among graduate business school programs, employers and peer organizations regarding their initiatives to educate and encourage women in business.
The organization's continued viability is made possible through the generous contributions of corporations that actively engage in the support and hiring of women MBAs. Our sincere thanks goes to all of our partners and sponsors for recognizing the potential of each of our members and for supporting the overall objective of the National Association of Women MBAs.
