MBA Association

 

Growing your connections while growing your knowledge

The value of the BW MBA is not only in the credential of the degree or the knowledge obtained in class, but also in the combined value of our collective circles of influence and the body of our experiences. The BW MBA Association, which counts all current graduate business students and graduate business alumni among its members, is a volunteer driven organization that partners closely with the Carmel Boyer School of Business to deliver high value experiences, free of charge. 

Stay connected and build your network by participating in programs such as the On Demand Webinar Series featuring topical presentations by BW faculty, alumni and other business leaders; Economic Insights annual panel event offering multiple perspectives on the current environment; regular talks and explorations by Param Srikantia (originally of the "Why Life Sucks" series), and other events for BW alumni.

In 2019 the MBAA celebrated its 10-year anniversary with a special gala event, which included an announcement about creating the MBA Association Endowment Fund to preserve resources for the future. The Endowment Fund is stewarded by members of the MBAA Executive Council in partnership with BW financial and philanthropy officers.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several in person events were canceled in 2020, but the MBAA welcomed the return of the Master's Masters Golf Outing in September 2021 and has innovated a mix of in person and virtual engagement opportunities to serve its members. MBAA leadership envisions a hybrid future of programming to serve its members regardless of location or ability to travel to campus.

MBA alumni are also active volunteers. In addition to alumni serving on the Executive Council and event subcommittees of the MBA Association, alumni have assisted the School of Business with mentoring One Year MBA students who have less career experience than the typical MBA student. Alumni also help the School of Business with recruitment by participating in the MBA Alumni Referral Scholarship, funded by the BW School of Business to celebrate the legacy of its graduates. In partnership with BW Career Services, MBA alumni are active on Handshake platforms and appear regularly on Career Services panels.

Read the latest MBA Association newsletter here for news, upcoming events, and feature stories about people and topics central to the MBAA mission.  All current MBA students and MBA alumni with a valid email address receive the newsletter, which is published 4-5 times per calendar year.  Don't receive the newsletter?
