Alumni Support is a hallmark of the University of Mississippi. Ole Miss Alumni include many highly successful and nationally prominent businesspeople, and a large number are graduates of the MBA Program. MBA students have numerous opportunities to meet and interact with alumni through several events and activities.
MBA ALUMNI BOARD
The MBA Alumni Board is composed of a committed team of professionals that are student advocates. Each member brings his or her own business expertise coupled with a passion for Ole Miss to positively influence current students. Board members hold a series of Professional Development Days throughout the year. Workshops include: polishing a resume, conducting mock interviews, and negotiating the job offer.
Board members interact with each student for resume critique sessions in order for students to have their resume ready to showcase their talents within weeks of the start of the fall semester. Those resumes are also presented in our “Class Resume Book”. If you are an employer and would like to request a copy of this year’s current Resume Book, please email, Ms. Lila Neely at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, the MBA Board assists to administer our MBA Mentor Program. Our mentoring program is designed to bring business leaders together with Ole Miss MBA students for the purpose of professional growth. The mentors will share their knowledge of the business world and provide insight on navigating through the post-MBA world of work. This opportunity will allow MBA candidates to build career networks and grow as professionals and leaders. If you would like to serve as a mentor, please email, Ms. Lila Neely at email@example.com.
BUSINESS ADVISORY BOARD
The Business Advisory Board is composed of successful executives, business people, and entrepreneurs who generously give their time to help the Ole Miss Business School in many important ways. One of the Board's most important contributions, and the favorite activity for the members, is to help Ole Miss Business students make the personal connections they need to find jobs and promote their careers. Board members come to campus at least twice per year for semi-annual meetings, but many members come more often to give guest lectures, interact with students, and participate in student activities.
THE OLE MISS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
One of the most important and valuable aspects of being a student at the University of Mississippi is the incredibly intense loyalty of our alumni. With members all over the U.S. and throughout the world in all manner of professions and levels of success, the Ole Miss Alumni Association provides our students with a link to a network that is one of the most powerful and pervasive of any university in the country.
Development Officers for the School of Business work hard to foresee future growth and future needs of our program.
