What is NAWMBA?

The National Association of Women MBAs (NAWMBA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering women MBAs in order to propel more women into leadership positions in corporate America and to enhance the diversity of the nation's workforce.

In order to accomplish its mission, NAWMBA focuses its efforts in four key areas:

Education

Professional Development
NAWMBA encourages the continued education and professional development of women in business by supporting the development of professional chapters, an annual national conference, and the publication of Woman MBA magazine.

Networking
NAWMBA provides networking opportunities for students and professionals in business with organizations that are committed to the development of women's roles in business.

Collaboration
NAWMBA facilitates increased communication and collaboration among graduate business school programs regarding their initiatives to educate and encourage women in business. The organization's continued viability is made possible through the generous contributions from corporations that actively engage in the supporting and hiring of women MBAs.
