Message from the President
Many of you may have heard that the NCSU MBA Part-Time program was voted #30 in the country by Businessweek – another piece of evidence that our program’s stature is increasing in the eyes of those across the country.
As the perceived value of the NC State Jenkins MBA program increases in the eyes of others, the MBA Alumni Society continues to work to increase our MBA program’s value to you, our alumni.
Our Communications, Events, Student Engagement, Business Development, and Nominations Committees had a very productive Fall semester, and plans are underway for an even greater Spring semester. Please continue to look for Wolf Wires and Wolf Flashes for updates regarding events and other items of interest throughout the coming semester.
On a fun note, some board members and I are running (and eating) as a team in the Krispy Kreme Challenge on February 4 – if you’re interested in participating; sign up under the team name “NCSU MBA Alumni” as soon as you can! We’d love to see you there.
I wish each of you and yours a fantastic, happy and safe 2012!
NCSU MBA Alumni Society
