Tina Bassir, TMMBA Associate Director
For TMMBA Class 9, there are only 6 days until graduation. While class sessions and weekly deliverables are coming to an end, a new opportunity is about to begin–class 9 is becoming part of the TMMBA Alumni Network. After next week, there will be over 580 graduates representing a wide range of diverse companies and functions.
As students are counting down the days, I’m putting together some resources that will help the students transition to the alumni network. As an alum, there are many ways to stay connected to the program and to each other. One way to stay connected is by participating in the many events we host throughout the year–ranging from continuing education and networking to family fun and recreation. A few examples of events include the quarterly book group (a chance for alums to come back in the classroom with a faculty member for an engaging discussion of a business book), speed networking night (a fast-paced evening with the opportunity to meet new connections and expand your network), and the annual global economic update (this popular evening features Karma Hadjimichalakis as she provides an update on the global economic scene).
TMMBA alums are also invited to participate in events with the Foster School of Business and are welcome to join the University of Washington Alumni Association (UWAA).
