Summer Semester 2021: January-term and EMBA students are in class over the summer and are available for information sessions and networking events.
Fall Semester 2021: Companies are limited to hosting three events per class year, in addition to a single diversity event*. All information sessions must be virtual, and employers are asked to provide links to the video conferencing platform of their choice. Supplemental small group in-person events may be organized by the employer and held off campus with prior approval from the CMC.
- Examples of events that fall under this policy include: company information sessions, practice area networking events, social events, and invite-only dinners.
- Examples of events excluded from this policy include: coffee chats, multi-school events and multi-firm events.
- Different divisions (e.g. investment banking vs. asset management) or geographic offices within a company may qualify as separate entities for the purpose of this policy, but firms must receive prior approval from the CMC before planning an event.
*Companies may host multiple diversity events but individual students are not permitted to attend more than one diversity event of their choice.
