Monthly Networking Luncheons
Monthly networking luncheons are held on the first and fourth Fridays of each month (see links below).
Lunches begin promptly at 11:45 am and conclude at 1 pm. Each guest has the opportunity to introduce themselves and provide a brief update on their personal and/or professional life. Don't forget to bring your business cards for networking. Following each event, all guests are emailed scans of the business cards to further facilitate the networking process. Please note lunches are open only to Merage School/GSM/GSA alumni and current major students.
