Kimberly Foster ’13, a recent graduate of the UConn School of Business accounting program has been accepted to the prestigious Yale School of Management Global Pre-MBA Leadership Program—a highly selective, two-week summer program aimed at college sophomores, juniors, seniors, and recent college graduates from populations typically underrepresented in management education.
This emphasis on leadership flows from the mission of the School of Management: to educate leaders for business and society. When students know how to inspire people, as well as manage capital, materials and ideas, they can become a more potent agent of change. The program will consist of learning business management skills, leadership knowledge, developing career inspiration, job search training and business school application guidance.
Whether or not attendees decide to pursue an MBA – at Yale or elsewhere – the Yale School of Management Pre-MBA Leadership Program will not only develop their practical knowledge of business and management, but also inspire attendees to develop and draw upon their leadership abilities in order to make a positive impact – in their personal and professional endeavors, and in the life of their community.
Kim is the former president of the UConn chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) and was recently honored as “Outstanding Student Member” by the NABA Greater Hartford Professional Chapter. Beginning this summer, Kim will be working full-time for Ernst and Young.
