At Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (LFGSM), we foster an engaged academic and social community whether you’re learning on campus or online. There are a number of regular events that connect students, alumni, staff and faculty at Lake Forest.

The Events Calendar on our website is designed to integrate seamlessly with daily life, allowing you to add events directly to your personal calendar. Upcoming events include:

MBA Preview Nights

Whether to further your education with an MBA Degree is a big decision. Attending an MBA Preview allows prospective students to ask questions, share their aspirations and have a first-hand look at the type of educational program LFGSM offers. Current students, alumni, faculty and staff are available to share their experiences and help students take the next step in the admissions process. Potential students considering an MBA Degree can attend a Preview at our Lake Forest campus, Schaumburg location or online via WebEx.

First Friday Networking Series

If you’re looking to connect with LFGSM students, faculty, alumni and staff, our First Friday Networking Series facilitates networking and continued learning opportunities in a fun, social environment. Sign-up for a First Friday Networking event and connect to the Lake Forest community both professionally and socially. Check out “Stop Networking, Start Building Relationships” on Friday, February 6.


We encourage our students and alumni to commit to lifelong learning. That is why we offer a number of free webinars that foster continued professional development outside the classroom with valuable training from leaders in a variety of business sectors. Get tools and resources for your career from faculty and other business leaders that you can use in your management practice.

Corporate Information Sessions

LFGSM partners with notable Chicago area organizations, including Walgreens, Allstate, and Blue Cross Blue Shield, to provide corporate training, MBA Degrees and Graduate Certificates to their experienced managers. In addition to our regular MBA Preview Nights, we host private on-site information sessions for employees of our corporate partners.

Special Events

Visit the Events Calendar regularly for information on our other special events throughout the year. In addition to Graduation at Navy Pier and the annual LFGSM Golf Classic to benefit the scholarship funds, we post a variety of social and academic events, and volunteer opportunities on the Events Calendar.

With so many events to choose from, we hope to see you soon!
