The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University played host to a memorable weekend on April 19-20, 2024 for alumni from across the globe. More than 500 attendees gathered from the milestone years ending in four and nine to embrace this year's theme: celebrate the past and embracing the future.

In addition to reminiscing with classmates at social gatherings, alumni had the opportunity to connect with current students, learn about the state of the Tepper School, and participate in intelligent conversations with panelists on trending topics such as leadership, technology advancements, and entrepreneurship.

Executive Director of Alumni Relations, John Sengenberger, explained that each recipient epitomized the values and excellence upheld by the Tepper School, serving as inspirations for current and future alumni.

"It was our joy to honor seven alumni who are making lasting impacts by shaping industries, innovating, and strengthening our alumni community,” said Sengenberger. “Our recipients set a high bar for future nominees, and it is our hope that they will inspire our alumni, in their careers, and in their service to the Tepper School community.”

An awards committee of the Tepper School Alumni Board selected the 2024 winners from a pool of nominations submitted by the Tepper School community.
