AAMBAA is currently preparing to host its signature event, the 31st Annual DuSable Conference: “Work Hard. Network Harder.” ChiBus recently sat down with conference co-chairs Kelly Henry ’16 and Kharay Kenyatta ‘16 to learn more about this conference and what makes it so special.
Kharay: I saw the value of networking firsthand throughout my career before Booth and even here I’ve noticed that some of the best opportunities I’ve had have been because of connections I’ve made. I get the impression though that many Boothies would rather be in a spreadsheet than out networking in person. However, when we get to our post-MBA roles it’ll be incredibly important to know how to exert the power we do have because at the end of the day, if you’re not getting the right exposure your hard work won’t necessarily get you where you want to be. Your network is a differentiator.
President Barack Obama reportedly interviewed at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business on April 7th for a spot in the Class of 2018, according to sources.
