UFV Business Alumni – Get together, get connected, get ahead

The mark of any good business school is undoubtedly the success if its graduates, and here at UFV we are proud to watch as our alumni continue to make great strides in their lives and careers following their graduation from our BBA program. On October 25th, 2017, the UFV School of Business hosted it’s first ever alumni networking event in order to provide an opportunity for our graduates to reconnect with fellow graduates, faculty, and staff.In partnership with the UFV Alumni Association, the School of Business invited alumni to the Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotsford to network, view the gallery’s latest collection, and sample some UFV Alumni wine. Faculty and staff were very pleased to catch up with former students and hear their success stories.

This event was also an opportunity get feedback on how the business school can better serve and connect with our alumni. As a result of many fruitful discussions throughout the evening, the School of Business is eager to see how we can further support our alumni through assisting in job placement, professional development, and ongoing personal and career growth.

In continuing to strive towards a stronger relationship with our graduates and better determine how the School of Business can  encourage and support our graduates, we will continue to reach out to all of our graduates and invite you to connect with us and let us know how you are doing and most importantly, how we can continue to help you stride towards your goals.

If you are a School of Business Alumni and were unable to make the event at the Reach, there will be more opportunities to connect with your fellow alumni and former professors both online and in person. The School of Business would like to invite you to join a special exclusive LinkedIn group which will feature upcoming events, industry relevant information, and allow you to let us know how we can help you in your career.
