New this year: alums have chance to nominate two of their own for awards

Author: Adrienne Bogacz

Do you know a classmate who’s done something great for Mendoza in the past year?

Each spring, Graduate Alumni Relations and the Notre Dame MBA program honor two outstanding MBA alumni for their commitment to their communities and to Notre Dame.

The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes an MBA alumnus/alumna who has demonstrated achievement in business and a strong commitment to the Mendoza College of Business through leadership and service to the MBA community. The Recent Alumni Service Award honors someone who graduated from the MBA program in the past seven years (2005 or later) and has demonstrated extraordinary service to our business school.

In past years, Graduate Alumni Relations solicited award nominations from faculty and staff. But for the first time, you will be able to nominate any fellow alumna or alumnus using a new online award form, which we’ll send to you in mid-March. On the form, simply enter your contact information, some details about your nominee and a few sentences about why you think your nominee deserves an alumni award. For example, you might suggest a classmate who continually recruits Notre Dame students or who organizes events for fellow alumni.

It’s a great way to honor your fellow alums for their contributions to their workplaces, their communities and the greater good. Be sure to participate!

We’ll contact the winners in April and will present the awards at our MBA graduation rehearsal on Friday, May 18.
