The Best MBA Alumni Networks

ALUMNI BUY INTO THE MISSION

“If you move to Miami and you’ve never lived in Miami before, the club in Miami is going to have networking receptions,” Ponisciak explains. “Then they’re also going to have community service and faith-based opportunities; they’re going to have football game watches, and family-themed events as well. So there’s just a lot of great ways to continue to feel like you’re part of the Notre Dame family that I don’t know that all other business schools have.”

Call it a force multiplier, one that produces alums who truly buy into Mendoza’s educating minds and hearts ethos. “There is this very strong sense of community, and that’s something that’s fostered by the university and the college as well, Ponisciak adds. It’s something that students buy into, that everyone is there to help each other out, and that carries over when you become an alum.”
