40th Anniversary of Business Management
This year marks the 40th anniversary of our Department of Business Management. We are celebrating this achievement by highlighting exemplars of our 1500-strong alumni and the Washington College professor who helped launch their careers in a campaign called “Purpose Discovered.”
As part of its 40th anniversary, the Business Management Department is proud to feature the stories of star alumni and the professors who inspired them. The year-long celebration will culminate in a Spring gala.
