Part-time MBA student leadership saw an additional opportunity: sharing guidance on suiting up for interviews and networking events, while engaging in a little fun and networking in the process.
This led to a dress-for-success event that brought 50 students together for a Banana Republic fashion show—with student models rocking the runway and the clothier's stylists sharing tips.
"We wanted to make people aware that dressing for success is as important as having a great resume," says event organizer EWMBA Association Co-Career VP Richa Gujarati.
"Fashion is a critical component of the brand we present," agrees Gujarati's co-VP Susan Hsieh. "Whether one chooses to go business casual, hipster, or black-tie formal, it’s important to pay special attention to how clothes make the man and woman."
