We recruit year round, but lately, our team has been logging the miles. Thanks to all our current and alumni FEMBAs who meet us in all these cities and help us communicate to the next generation of FEMBAs. And thanks to my team, who make it all happen!

Information Session at Google in Mountain View, March 20, 2015
Said Maureen, “For two years I’ve wanted to have an FEMBA Info Session at Google, and it finally happened last night! It was fantastic. A lot of the attendees work at Google naturally, but we also had people from Tesla, SAP, ITC, Merrill Lynch, Ericsson, Lockheed, Expedia, HP, and CTS there…The woman who works at Tesla said it was the best info session that she has been to because it was not boring and because everyone was very open.” Here is Maureen, getting ready for the evening.
Supporting Maureen were our own current and alumni FEMBAs. Left to Right: Tim Frank, Tim Hui, Anna Min, Sammy Shan, and Neelima Clark (not pictured here, had to leave early).
