As we look at our growing graduate business alumni network, which now numbers more than 17,000, we understand the importance of offering a wide range of events and opportunities to reach and engage this diverse audience. We want our alumni to continue to find value in all that the Opus College of Business has to offer, even after classes have wrapped up and diplomas are in hand.

The Opus College of Business Alumni Month was created to do just that – provide opportunities for critical thinking while also encouraging life-long learning, facilitating socialization and networking, renewing a sense of pride in completing a graduate business degree, and serving as a reminder that the Opus College of Business can be part of whatever the future might hold for each graduate.

With half of summer now behind us, it’s time to start thinking about how to make the most of our remaining warm weather. Alumni Month offers a variety of events – including family-friendly outings at Lake Harriet and a summer social along the shores of Lake Minnetonka, as well as speaker events featuring our much-loved faculty – at least a few could fit into any busy summer schedule.
