The event that started in 2013 as a partnership between Fuqua’s Development and Alumni Relations team and the Office of Admissions has now become an annual tradition for Fuqua alumni, current and admitted students.
Fuqua Around the World gives our school’s community the opportunity to gather on one night, wherever they are around the globe. Alumni from all programs connect with fellow alumni in their region, current students and alumni share stories with admitted students and help them learn more about our school, and best of all, everyone comes together to celebrate the Fuqua community.
The event is made possible with the help of more than 100 alumni volunteers around the globe who ‘host’ networking and social events in their cities (thank you volunteers!). Over the years the tradition has grown, and this year the fifth annual Fuqua Around the World was the biggest event ever with 86 cities and more than 2,800 alumni, current and admitted student RSVPs.
