Various networking opportunities are available to Graduate students through community networking events, career fairs, and Leadership Forum.

A Leadership Forum for RMU Graduate Students

A unique feature of the Robert Morris University School of Graduate studies is known as the "Leadership Forum."  Recognized leaders in their fields speak to students in an interactive, open-forum format. These forums are held several times a year at various Chicago-area locations, and cover a wide variety of topics relevant to the graduate programs.

In addition to creating an extraordinary learning opportunity outside of the usual classroom, Leadership Forum gives students the opportunity to network with industry leaders, and experience first-hand what great leaders are all about.

Great Leaders:

  • Are creative individuals who can solve business problems and drive organizational success while maintaining a balance in their personal lives.
  • Are ethical decision makers who thoughtfully consider the impact of their choices on the organization and all people within it.
  • Can inspire teams and manage change in a highly competitive environment, whether that be local, national, or global.
  • Reach informed business decisions that create value and foster innovation.
  • Are confident in their abilities to motivate, empower, and make tough decisions.
  • Are critical thinkers who can envision and examine both the short-term and long-term implications of their decisions.
  • Are visionaries who can see and think out of the box.
  • Are made and developed at the Robert Morris University School of Graduate Studies.
