Lindsay is the author of a new book that addresses the challenges that women face in MBA programs. Released by Praeger on April 30, 2014, The MBA Slingshot for Women: Using Business School to Catapult Your Career is a powerful handbook with a systematic approach, or “slingshot,”
More than 100,000 women take the Graduate Management Admission Test each year. "Acceptance into an MBA program is a great accomplishment, but it's just the beginning. The MBA can serve as a launching point, but women must take full advantage to shoot to the top of the business world," says Lindsay, who earned her MBA at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, and is a former MBA admissions officer and corporate MBA recruiter, and nonprofit executive. Through her book, Lindsay offers a gender-based roadmap for women to develop the knowledge, skills and relationships to succeed in business school and beyond.
“The MBA Slingshot for Women challenges women to plan their attack on business school and squeeze every ounce of career potential out of the experience. We’re sure to see more women at the top as a result,” says Elissa Ellis Sangster, Executive Director of the Forte Foundation.
The MBA Slingshot for Women: Using Business School to Catapult Your Career is available online at all major retailers. For additional information, please visit www.nicolelindsay.com.
