On behalf of the Board of Directors of Villanova’s MBA Alumni Association (MBA AA), I am very pleased to offer you this inaugural edition of our MBA Newsletter.  This newsletter will be issued quarterly with fresh content aimed at building a more connected community of alumni.  It will highlight the post-graduation value that the MBA AA delivers in regards to professional development, community outreach and networking. 
Villanova’s MBA AA was formally established in 2014 and is comprised of Villanovans who have graduated from the MBA program or other graduate programs within The Villanova School of Business.  Our mission is to enhance the value of the post-Villanova MBA experience by engaging thousands of alumni and current graduate students via networking events, mentoring relationships, professional development programs and philanthropic endeavors.
In 2018, I am excited to further grow our membership base, engage deeper with current MBA students and alumni, and enhance the value of our programs.  I invite you to visit our website, connect with us on LinkedIn and join us at an upcoming event.  I also encourage you to get involved with our organization and learn more about our board, committees and vision.  Together, we can continue to develop and grow our MBA experience both on and off campus.  
As an Augustinian Catholic institution, we are called to be in service to one another, embracing our differences while also celebrating our shared goals and values.  So many of us are living the Augustinian mission in our everyday lives whether it be through research, professional activities or within our local communities, and we are proud to highlight many of your stories in this newsletter.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
