Meet the Alumni

The fellowship year is an immersive learning experience, but it’s only the beginning of a lifelong relationship with the Fellows community. After completing their business studies, Fellows remain connected to one another and the guiding mission of the McGowan Fellows Program through alumni-led initiatives, often spearheaded by the alumni committee members*; the annual Symposium; and other activities.
