Jessica Dugan
Candidate
I applied to 2 business schools and was accepted at both of them. I will be starting at London Business School in September in their EMBA program, which I learned of at the Women in Leadership event.

The QS Women in Leadership MBA Event highlights the career benefits for women who want to pursue an MBA. We also aim to answer the question: ‘is an MBA the right choice for me?’

With a series of panel debates, presentations from business schools and round table discussions, attendees will also benefit from superb networking opportunities with ambitious, like-minded, future business leaders at this MBA event.

These events are free to attend but places are limited. If you would like to take part, then please register your details by clicking below.
