Like most top ranked MBA schools, the men outnumber the women here at the Kelley School of Business. The club Kelley Women allows women MBAs to network with each other and learn about some of the challenges women face in the business world. The club is very active and has numerous speakers, volunteer events and networking opportunities. The club is also affiliated with the National Association of Women MBAs (NAWMBA), and Kelley was one of the sponsors for the 2009 NAWMBA conference. The club is really one reason that Kelley is one of the best business grad schools!
The women at the Kelley did some serious bonding this weekend during the annual Kelley Women Holiday Party. The event is always one of the favorite MBA student activities of the year for top MBA students because it is a chance for all of the women MBAs to put on their best cocktail dresses and enjoy a night together. The party was loud, but a lot of fun stories were shared and there was a lot of socializing between the first and second year women. The highlight of the event was probably the three special visitors who crashed the party... (yes the elves are wearing real tights!)
