For Alumni

Message from Director of Diversity Initiatives

Greetings Duke MBA Alumni! We cordially invite you to join us for the 35th Anniversary of the Duke MBA Workshop for Minority Applicants on November 16-19, 2017.

The Duke MBA Workshop is one of the many diversity events we host to build the pipeline of underrepresented ethnic minorities applying to and enrolling in business school. Each year over 60 Duke MBA alumni return to Fuqua to share their professional experiences and insight with prospective students. If you attended the Workshop, you remember what a positive experience it was. Offering the opportunity to engage with alumni is one of the defining and differentiating features of the Workshop, and the alumni interaction is consistently one of the key things that student attendees highlight as a value of the Workshop.

In addition to supporting our diversity recruitment initiatives, during the weekend you will have the opportunity to learn more about what is happening at your alma mater and reconnect with Fuqua and your fellow alumni.

As you begin making plans for your visit back to Duke, we encourage you to take the next steps:

  • Reserve your hotel accommodations at the JB Duke Hotel or Washington Duke Inn
  • Spread the word and encourage your classmates and other fellow alumni to join us for the 35th anniversary celebration

We look forward to seeing you on campus in November to help us continue the valued and impactful tradition of alumni involvement in the workshop.

Best regards,

Sharon Thompson
