PROGRAMME INFORMATION and INVITATION:
It is our pleasure to introduce you to BROAD ADVANTAGE, a one-week "immersion in business" for undergraduate university women. We believe young women get trapped in their choices through inexperience, and aim to give them a phenomenal start, by providing both the intel and interpersonal tools needed to succeed post-university.
The program is built on the wealth of expertise within our exclusive global network of 17,000 high flyers representing virtually every life and career path: entrepreneurs, filmmakers, authors, scholars, philanthropists, mothers.
June and August will see programmes in New York and Los Angeles, with up to 120 exceptional young women selected through competitive applications for each weak-long session.
Right now, these are only available in the US, but our European network is strong and can offer this opportunity to UK undergraduates!
Check out the feedback below and get in touch to support having our very own LONDON version of the programme.

CLASS OF '06:
"I do strongly believe is that the Broad Advantage program changed the direction of my life…I learned the value of 'healthy competition'
before that week, coming from Oxford, I would have scoffed at putting either of those words in the same sentence…Every girl I met on the trip, and every speaker, I really hope will be a good friend and business associate for life"

"Thank you so much for this absolutely transforming experience! It has opened my eyes and inspired me to pursue my dreams and not be hesitant to take an unconventional path. This program has helped me to learn a great deal about the world I am about to enter—the business world. But more importantly, it has helped me to learn more about myself"
Name: Kseniya From: Barnard College '09 Major: Political Science / Economy
"I learned a lot about myself at the Broad Advantage. I also met someone from Federated during the program. I asked if I could pass on my resume, and she said, "I'd be happy to take your resume and pass it along. I'd be happy to offer my advice." About a month and a half later, I was invited to attend Federated's product development training program, which is a year long training program that exposes product assistants like me to all aspects of the business. Now I deal with everything from trademark infringement to marketing of our product"
