Fall 2019 - New MBA Alumni Association President
The fall certainly has a reputation for being both a busy time of year, as well as a time of transitions. I always find myself reflecting on the past year and looking forward to new opportunities ahead. This theme of reflection and opportunity seem fitting to me, especially as I transition into my new role within the MBA Alumni Association.
I'm honored to be a part of such a talented, diverse, and engaged alumni network and I'm so proud of the success of the program (VSB was recently recognized by U.S. News & World Report with a No. 2 ranking for Best Online Graduate Business Program and No. 13 for Best Online MBA Program!). Even more fitting, we're approaching 40 years of the Villanova MBA program and have included a "Reflections" column in the newsletter. We're working to highlight remembrances of our alumni dating back to the very beginning of the program.
I would also like to specifically thank Mike Filachek for his past 5 years of leadership of the MBA Alumni Association -- his efforts have positioned the association to continue advancing in our mission to enhance the value of the Villanova MBA. The MBA Alumni Association Board is already hard at work planning for 2020 -- stay tuned for updates, and please feel free to suggest ideas for alumni events that you'd be interested in attending.
Thank you all for your engagement with our Alumni Association -- I look forward to meeting many of you at upcoming events. Go Cats!
