Department of Business, Management & Leadership Hosts MBA & MAOL Informational Networking Event, More Gatherings Planned for Fall

Posted by Medaille University Office of Communications

On June 22, the Medaille University Department of Business, Management, & Leadership hosted a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL) Graduate Programs Informational Networking Event, which brought prospective students, alumni, faculty and staff together on campus. 

Communication and MAOL alumnus Antione Holmes ’21, ’22 served as the moderator for the event, and he led a panel of Medaille MBA and MAOL alumni in sharing their education and career-related experience, insight and advice for prospective students. The alumni panel consisted of MAOL alumna Amanda Best ’21 (a solution design & services supervisor at Ingram Micro), BBA and MBA alumnus Shannon L. Johnson ’04, ’11 (an assistant vice president & branch manager at M&T Bank), and veterinary technology and MAOL alumna Brooke McMillan ’14, ’21 (a learning designer at Curbell Plastics). 

Department of Business, Management & Leadership Assistant Professor of the Practice and MAOL Program Director Kristy Tyson, MBA, organized the event, which included same-day program acceptance for prospective students, refreshments and networking activities, such as mix & mingle bingo, icebreakers and a LinkedIn exercise. 

“This networking event was about building connections and hearing stories,” says Tyson. “Our alumni moderator and panelists shared inspiring and motivating advice, and the room was filled with laughter, smiles, great conversations and hope for the future. I am excited about hosting more in-person and virtual events to connect and support our communities, business partners, students and alumni.” 

Medaille’s Department of Business, Management & Leadership is eager to host more events this fall, such as alumni gatherings and MAOL capstone webinars. The department is also working on restarting Medaille’s chapter of Enactus, an international student organization that engages the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders to use innovation and business principles to improve the world.
