McDonough School of Business

Kosoy Women in Business Program

The Kosoy Women in Business is a cohort-based initiative that provides tactical and strategic leadership development for McDonough School of Business undergraduate students to advance topics related to women in the workplace. 

Applications for the 2024-2025 cohort are now closed

The pilot program will serve a small cohort of undergraduate students who will meet throughout the academic year for skill-building workshops, speaker series, site visits, dinners, and other opportunities to learn from top business executives about their perspectives on gender in the workplace and beyond. The program will cover topics such as self-advocacy, negotiation, personal finance, and more to emphasize tangible and practical skill-building alongside leadership and professional development.
