We’ve taken the challenge of building stronger engagement with diverse young professionals and pre-professionals, and responded with an exciting initiative, which we’ve decided to call Learners to Leaders. It’s an invitation-only networking and leader development event where each participant has been nominated by a faculty, staff, or friend who can attest to their leadership contributions.

The participants are talented college juniors, seniors and recent grads who have expressed interest in furthering their education at the graduate level. This event not only gives us broader exposure to a community that may not be as familiar with the MBA degree program, or St. Thomas at the graduate school level; it also gives us the opportunity to contribute to the academic and career development of this dynamic and exciting population.
