Do you know someone who gives back to the Mendoza College of Business? Maybe through recruiting or internships or returning as a guest speaker?

The Graduate Alumni Office is soliciting nominations for the Distinguished Alumni Award and the Recent Alumni Service Award. Alums can nominate themselves or a fellow graduate business alum. The online nomination form is due by April 11, 2014.

These annual awards celebrate the contributions of Mendoza’s incredible alumni. We cannot overstate how much alumni service affects Mendoza students, programs and the College in general.

We are profoundly grateful.
