The Robert J. Manning School of Business alumni value the quality education they received at UMass Lowell. Those who haven't been by the University in a while should stop by to see all the changes around campus or to attend one of our Senior Executive Forum presentations.
If you're looking to reconnect with UMass Lowell, there are plenty of ways to get involved, from speaking in a class, providing program and curriculum review, hosting student interns, or serving as student presentation evaluators to attending our various alumni functions.
The Advisory Board is composed of a group of successful business executives, many of whom are UMass Lowell alumni. Its primary purpose is to provide feedback and direction to the dean and the faculty in the college. Annual strategic plans and priorities are reviewed on a regular basis as are opportunities and challenges facing the college. The members of the Advisory Board also take an active role in curriculum review and other student and professional activities within the college. All board members support either the Advisory Board Endowment Fund or their own personal endowment fund dedicated to providing financial support to the college.
