Accounting has been a popular offering at the Milgard School of Business (MSB) since 1994, enabling students to specialize in the field while earning a Bachelor’s of Arts in Business. The undergraduate program’s success led university leaders to consider expanding the program to the graduate school level.
Like most organizations, the Milgard School of Business was recently faced with the challenge of confronting the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering all the important aspects of our mission, we chose to place the needs of our students at the highest priority.
POPULATION: The Milgard Alumni Engagement Program is led by a group of area business leaders from the Milgard Executive Council, along with Milgard School Director of Development, Kevin Dugan, and Deanna Blanchfield of Milgard staff.

Given this feedback, the Alumni Engagement group will now begin planning future events informed by the responses given through this survey.
