News & Notes
In a typical year, nearly 80% of students offered admission to The Richmond MBA will decide to enroll. Among the eight or nine who do not enroll, there are usually a few who are unable to convince their employers to subsidize the costs of attending an MBA program. They therefore decide to postpone, sometimes indefinitely, their pursuit of the degree. These are highly qualified and ambitious individuals who would make great additions to the student body if they could find funding to attend.
Recognizing this issue, our MBA Alumni Society has created a new scholarship fund to support MBA students. Under the leadership of President Mike Grappone, GB'90, the creation of this new initiative is sure to make a difference in the lives and careers of the fortunate MBA scholarship recipients.Mike Grappone and the Alumni Society will be sending more information about this scholarship fund to you very soon. For now, please join me in thanking Mike and his fellow members of the Alumni Society who worked so hard to create this opportunity.
