The MCNY School for Business Alumni Network was established to strengthen alumni relations through purposeful activities and to be a driving force in the development of marketing, institutional advancement and admissions outreach programs. To achieve this, the members of the Alumni Network will work in partnership with the past and present graduates of the Metropolitan College of New York School for Business and/or School for Management, Business Programs community to develop necessary resources to move Metropolitan College of New York into the select group of premier small colleges.
The School for Business Alumni Network is open to all graduates who are considered alumni by Metropolitan College of New York School for Business (or the Business Programs of the School for Management) by having met and satisfied all of the academic requirements and standards necessary for successful completion of one of its various degree programs, and/or have been recognized by the College as honorary School for Business alumni. We encourage all graduates on the Associates, Bachelor and MBA levels to join the Network and become active in one of the various committees.
The School for Business Alumni Network has 6 standing committees that serve as the organizational structure through which alumni can get involved. They include the Executive Committee, the Career Advisory Network Committee; Events, Communication and Marketing Committee, Fundraising/Scholarship Committee; a Membership, Outreach, Diversity and Young Alumni Committee; and, the Global Business, Curriculum and Entrepreneurship Committee.
General meetings will be held the 3rd Tuesday of every month in room 706 (Manhattan campus).
