College of Business Alumni ~ Building a Legacy of Leadership

Over 55,000 NIU College of Business alumni have passed through our doors since the creation of the college in 1961. Our graduates are recognized in industry for their strong work ethic, team effectiveness, adaptability, creativity, and leadership. Our College of Business Alumni share drive and talent, and a degree from a college that is equally driven and talented.

As NIU College of Business Alumni, you have the ability to add value to the education our students receive by sharing your perspectives and experiences in the classroom, with internships, and mentoring programs. In return, alumni and corporations connect with outstanding students who add value to their companies for years to come.

Each year, the College of Business recognizes outstanding alumni achievement. This year's award recipients will be honored at the 24th Annual Alumni Luncheon on May 2. Meet the winners:
