FEMBA After Hours

Although FEMBA students are busy working professionals they still manage to find time to network and socialize outside the classroom with other MBA students. After hours events include: Happy Hours with Classmates, Las Vegas Trips, Anderson Halloween Party, Ski Trips, AnderProm: Anderson End of Year Party, and FEMBApalooza

“I have participated in numerous social events from happy hours, Halloween parties to FEMBApalooza and have always been pleased with the sense of community Anderson enforces.  It has allowed me to foster strong relationships with people I otherwise would not have met through my personal or professional network.”
