Spring Networking Opportunities

Image of Register Now: |Spring Networking Opportunities

Alumni events are a lot of fun—and effective for building your network, a critical tool for career success. The vast majority of GSM alumni make their homes in Northern California, evenly split between the Sacramento region and the Bay Area. And this spring you can reconnect with former classmates, make new friends and expand your professional circle at a GSM alumni event in your neighborhood.

Strong networks are a key component of all great schools. If you’re not involved with your network, you’re not realizing the full value of your investment in a top-quality business education. As the Graduate School of Management network grows stronger, we want you to be a part of it.

Registration is now open. I hope to see you at the following events.

John Argo ’04
Past President, GSM Alumni Association
