Over 300 alumni, friends and family of the Isenberg School of Management assembled in Boston for a premiere event that included business and civic leaders alike.

Amherst, MA (PRWEB) June 25, 2014

Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst honored alumni David Fubini 76 of McKinsey & Company and Christina Calvanesco 03 of Eyeview Digital. The high-energy event held at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston on June 18 attracted over 300 alumni, friends and family of the highly-ranked business school.

Fubini, the evenings principal honoree and former long-time head of McKinsey & Companys Boston office, was introduced by the citys ex-mayor, Thomas Mennino, who praised the Isenberg graduate for his unselfish strategic partnership with the city, the United Way, and other causes. Noting the impact on Boston of Fubini and other Isenberg alumni, Mennino urged his Isenberg audience: Tell the world your story.

Other presenters include UMass Amherst chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy, Dean Mark A. Fuller, and the events master of ceremonies Beth Gamel 78 MS. Previous Isenberg Business Leadership Award honorees include Red Sox Executive Vice President and General Manager Ben Cherington 97.
In his own remarks, Dean Fuller challenged his predominantly alumni audience to get to know the top quality students seated beside you. The schools dramatic rise in national rankings are important, he said, because they reflect Isenbergs growing reputation. But what really drives me, are the job offers that that reputation brings. In 2014 Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranked Isenbergs Undergraduate program #36 overall and #14 among public institutions, making it the fastest rising undergraduate program in the U.S. over the last five years.

Ive been to quite a few Boston events on this scale and bigger. This was as good as it gets from start to finish, remarked Jenny Dell 08, the former NESN Red Sox reporter who will join CBS to cover the NFL next fall. Connecting with Isenbergs hard-working graduates reminded me why the school is so special and that I would always be part of that community of achievers.
