"This is a very exciting anniversary for the St. Ambrose Master of Business Administration program, which has helped advance the careers of many professionals," said MBA Director Teresa Hutchinson. "We'd love to hear our alum's stories and offer them an opportunity to reconnect with their classmates."

Alums are asked to share their stories or anecdotes by email: HutchinsonTeresaL@sau.edu, or by posting to the St. Ambrose MBA Facebook page. The deadline is March 15. In addition, these stories will be shared at an anniversary celebration, which will take place March 20. More details can be found at www.sau.edu/mba.

The St. Ambrose H.L. McLaughlin MBA provides a student-centered, convenient program delivered by highly qualified and skilled faculty who capture today's complex world of business by incorporating real-world experience.
