In addition to social events throughout the year, ALMA will be hosting the following:

ALMA Career Panel

This event will bring together current ALMA members and UCLA Anderson students to hear about the career experiences of Latinos in business. The event will be followed by a networking session with food and drinks.

Annual Conference and Career Exposition presented by Prospanica and NBMBAA

This conference offers a myriad of opportunities designed to increase access to careers in management, educate and build entrepreneurs, sharpen and enhance leadership skills, and help attendees secure career opportunities. ALMA members will meet with MBA professionals and corporations in Philadelphia, PA in late September 2017.

Hispanic Heritage Month and Cinco De Mayo Celebrations

Early in the year we will partner with LABA to celebrate Latin culture and educate the community about Columbus Day and Hispanic Heritage Month. In May, we will add our own flavor to Anderson Afternoons by educating the community about the meaning behind Cinco de Mayo and celebrating Mexican American culture.

Dinners for Eight

ALMA is hosting a number of small group dinners for ALMA members to get to know professionals working in Los Angeles. This will be an opportunity for six students to network and ask career development questions with two professionals in a more intimate setting.

EY/USC/UCLA Networking Event

Attendees will learn more about Ernst and Young, its recruiting process, and diversity network. This is also an opportunity to mingle with fellow MBAs from USC’s Latino Management & Business Association.
