The ROMBA conference is the world’s largest gathering of LGBT+ business students and alumni. The event educates, inspires, and connects our community through C-suite panels, workshops, competitions, a host of receptions, and a career fair with 100 corporate partners across industries recruiting LGBT+ MBA talent. UF MBA current students attend the career fair portion each year to engage with potential employers and recruit for their dream careers! And UF MBA alumni return each year to network and continue learning.

LGBTQ+ Networking Events
