Top social media posts from 2017

As we come to the close of 2017, we reflect on the most popular news and social media posts of the year. We’re so very proud of all of our student, faculty, staff and alumni successes!




Every semester, hundreds of students cross the stage as proud families and friends cheer from the stands. Doctoral, MBA, specialty master’s and undergraduate students end a chapter of their lives and advance to their careers in the business world. Pictures of the ceremonies are a great way for our new graduates and alumni to look back on their graduation.
