Submit a nomination for this year’s Alumni Awards

Author: Timothy Ponisciak

Graduate alumni from the Mendoza College of Business continue to make contributions to their programs in a number of ways long after graduation. Many devote time by serving as mentors, assisting students with potential job placements, or coming back to campus as a guest lecturer. This service is invaluable to the graduate business programs at Notre Dame.

Graduate Alumni Relations has just opened the online nomination form for the 2013 Distinguished Alumni and Recent Alumni Service Awards.  We strongly encourage alumni to submit a nomination. Alums can nominate themselves or a fellow graduate business alum for the awards.

Honoring the service and commitment of alumni is a very important aspect of the Graduate Alumni Relations programs. Please consider submitting a nomination for an alum who is very deserving of one of these awards. A description of each award appears below.

The nomination deadline is April 8. For more information, please email Tim Ponisciak at
