From the dean
Dear Alumni,

This month we held not one but two wonderful graduation celebrations. We celebrated with our graduating students from the Class of 2022, welcomed back our alumni from the Class of 2020, and participated in the university commencements.

A graduation ceremony is about celebrating what students have achieved and what they will go on to do. This year, we recognized the extraordinary period during which these classes were students at the GSB. It has been unlike any other.

We were fortunate to have two amazing alumni speakers share their experiences and wisdom, echoing themes of resilience, purpose, and change. Theresia Gouw, MBA ’94, spoke to the Class of 2022 about building inclusive organizations so that diversity and greater opportunity become the norm. Orlando Bravo, JD/MBA ’97, urged the Class of 2020 alumni to be real and genuine as they accomplish big goals and to be ready for when the world calls on them.

In closing, we all can take pride in the work of the school. Thank you to our students, faculty, staff, and alumni for everything you do for the GSB.

Jonathan Levin, Philip H. Knight Professor and Dean
