This year’s Fuqua Around the World, the sixth for our global networking event, proved to be bigger and better than ever. What started as a partnership between our Development and Alumni Relations team and the Office of Admissions has now become an annual tradition where Fuqua alumni, current, and admitted students come together on one evening to reminisce and network.

We saw a 20 percent increase in registrants this year, which pushed us over 3,000 for the first time. And by adding new locations—Düsseldorf; Geneva/Lausanne; Istanbul; Seoul; Baltimore, MD; Grand Rapids, MI; Jacksonville, FL; Palm Beach, FL; Santa Fe/Albuquerque, NM; Wilmington, NC—we brought the total up to 92 cities around the globe that hosted an event.

None of this would be possible without the help of 130 alumni volunteer ‘hosts’ who we’re always thankful for. And to all those Fuqua bound admits in attendance, we look forward to seeing you in Durham soon!

Here are some of the event highlights:
