There are numerous ways for alumni to help the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business and the College of Business Administration (CBA).
Job and Internship Leads
Undergraduates and MBAs are continually looking for internships and full-time positions following graduation. If you know of any full-time or internship opportunities available at your organization, or if you are willing to help job-seeking students in other ways, contact Melissa Shapiro, director of MBA Career Services, (firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-648-1511) or Fred Kendrick, director of undergraduate career services (email@example.com or 412-624-7863).
Often times our students are looking for mentors to advise them on important decisions and provide feedback and encouragement. At other times, volunteers help with Business Alumni Association events by assisting with logistics, providing company connections to sponsor events, or welcoming guests. If you're interested in volunteering or being a sponsor, contact Jim Waite, director of alumni and constituent relations, (firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-648-1620).
CBA Alumni Rally
We are rallying CBA alumni to reconnect with the college and our current students to help with career development and mentoring. Think back to the knowledge and benefits you received through the connections you made. Helping our current students with similar experiences is a great way to give back. Your level of involvement is entirely up to you. Learn more about the CBA Alumni Rally!
Share your enthusiasm for Katz and CBA with prospective students! Tell them how valuable your Pitt experience has been to you, brag about life in Oakland, or share a few of your favorite memories. Share the appropriate Web address with them as well - undergraduates (http://www.business.pitt.edu/cba/) or graduate students (http://www.business.pitt.edu/katz/).
Financial support ensures that the school grows and succeeds. Alumni can establish an endowment; donate scholarship, facility, or development funds; or give to the Annual Fund. Invest in Pitt Business online today or contact Thomas O'Toole, executive director of development, (email@example.com or 412-624-2022) for more information.
