The BBSA is sponsoring a reunion weekend for African-American alumni. The weekend will allow people to network with colleagues across the different programs and reconnect with former classmates. The weekend includes social activities, workshops and concludes with a banquet. The weekend will be an opportunity for alum to interact with current students and also discuss ways to continue bringing a diverse applicant pool to the school. Please RSVP to BBSA@mba.wfu.edu if you will be bringing a guest so that we can begin to finalize our arrangements. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send those as well.
