From Austin to the Bay Area and Orange County, alumni and friends of TCU Neeley have been thrilled to come together and hear directly from Daniel Pullin, the John V. Roach Dean of the TCU Neeley School of Business, about the current and future value of a Neeley education.
The Business After Hours events launched in summer 2022, engaging and empowering alumni, students, parents and more key constituents with the most up-to-date information about curriculum, experiential learning, and the latest return on investment for a Neeley degree.
“The purpose of the road show-style event is to connect people in each of these valued communities to the excellence we see on campus every day. Together, we are able to share the successes and future endeavors of the Fulfilling the Neeley Promise: Strategic Plan,” Pullin said.
In addition, Pullin is gathering feedback from stakeholders to learn more about the ways TCU continues to impact their lives.
“A common question I receive is how to stay connected and engaged with Neeley as an alumni or supporter, and these events have driven value for new connections across the board,” said Pullin. “We’ve also been pleasantly surprised by how many students are attending, as many have been in their home markets doing internships over the summer. In many cases, our students are learning even more about their school, and, in several cases, adding a new minor or certificate program to their studies. Elsewhere, we've had parents consider enrolling in our graduate and executive programs, seen increased donations, and increased student hiring in many of the most desirable regions for our university.”
TCU Neeley is committed to being a lifelong partner for alumni and supporters, and asks that they also contribute as lifelong partners for Neeley’s success. A few suggestions for continued engagement include:
- Hire a Horned Frog – interns or full-time graduating students
- Enroll yourself or employees in graduate degree programs
- Book curriculum in Executive Education for you or your company
- Attend Alumni Advantage virtual learning series
- Engage faculty research programs in your business
- Provide a philanthropic donation; Consider joining the Dean’s Council as a donor.
Business After Hours events continue this fall with stops in Dallas September 28 and Denver October 12. Register below for Dallas, and stay tuned: a registration link for the Denver event will be available soon.
