Connecting Alumni with the College of Business and one another

After graduation, alumni play significant roles at the College of Business – as speakers who share their professional experiences, as Advisory Board members who help ensure our curricula are relevant, and in many other ways.

You likely know you are part of a strong network, but do you know how strong? We have:

  • 835 alumni with executive officer titles like CEO or President
  • Overall career outcome rate for UA CoB Spring 2022 graduates is 93 percent (national average across all majors is 84 percent per 2021 NACE)
  • 32,034 alumni (21,125 live right here in Northeast Ohio)

We want you to stay current and involved in the important initiatives and news happening in and around the College of Business. With our alumni an involved part of our community, we will only become a stronger school and community of graduates.
