The Brown School of Professional Studies, with its suite of Executive Master programs, is proud to channel women professionals into this prestigious alumni community.


Nancy Neff '76, conference co-chair, and former principal in investment banking, Morgan Stanley & Co, shared her thoughts on the powerful experience she had at Brown:

"It really helped define my way of looking at things. You don’t really accept no for an answer. You try to turn it around. You know that risks are going to happen and that you are sometimes going to fail. But if you don’t try, you certainly won’t succeed in what you are trying to do. That's the culture that is really embodied at Brown."
