MBA Reunion Legacy

Join your fellow alumni in honoring your MBA class reunion!

Give to:

1986 Reunion Legacy  1991 Reunion Legacy  1996 Reunion Legacy

2001 Reunion Legacy  2006 Reunion Legacy  2011 Reunion Legacy

What is the VALUE of your Texas MBA? Reunion is upon our classes and it's a perfect time to consider this question. How can you establish the value of your MBA from one of the greatest universities on Earth? Perhaps estimate the monetary value of your careers? Attempt to assign numbers to the lifelong friendships established? To the power of your networks? To your memories? The truth is our degrees made the possibilities endless. Ceilings were removed making the sky the limit, doors were opened allowing us to work in roles we desired, we were empowered to thrive and succeed, and the memories extend to this day. 

A powerful way to give back is through our very own MBA Legacy Campaign: a program created by UT MBA Students, for the UT MBA program that spans the outbound student class gift all the way to class reunions. 

Give to:

1986 Reunion Legacy  1991 Reunion Legacy  1996 Reunion Legacy

2001 Reunion Legacy  2006 Reunion Legacy  2011 Reunion Legacy

The genesis of this important program dates back to 1996 when a group of students came together to establish an outgoing class gift similar to our peer graduate programs in the Top 20. Each MBA class since has raised funds for a specific, class-chosen purpose, some of which include interview changing rooms, scholarships, MBA endowments, and construction costs for our very own new Robert B. Rowling Hall.

The MBA Legacy Campaign was soon picked up by reunion classes as well, bringing in a current total of $2M+ pledged by all Legacy efforts since 1996

I invite you to help us expand our Legacy by giving in your reunion year - now! This is a chance to provide a return on the value each one of us has realized. The Legacy gifts from our 2016 reunion campaign will directly support Rowling Hall construction completion costs. 

Please join your classmates and peers by making a gift online today. Our UT MBAs continue to provide value to each of us, as we will continue to return to our university and program. 

I look forward to connecting with you during the reunion in November. Thank you all and Hook ’em!
