Falls School of Business Celebrates 30 Years of MBA Program


Anderson, Ind. — The Falls School of Business at Anderson University recently celebrated 30 years of the Master of Business Administration program with a reunion for central Indiana alums at Topgolf in Fishers, Indiana.

“The reunion was an opportunity for MBA graduates to rekindle old friendships and make new ones,” said Dr. Celesta Bates, MBA director. “Many participants said they were excited to be invited back and were looking forward to continuing to engage with AU. It was an evening of good fun, food, and fellowship.” 

More than 40 people attended the reunion and the program has over 2,000 alumni in its three decades of existence. The MBA program has evolved to five different class formats, including the accelerated MBA, online MBA, professional MBA, residential MBA, and graduate business certificate. 

“The 30th anniversary reunion was a great time for alumni to connect with colleagues and professors,” said Dr. Lonnie Leeper, dean of the Falls School of Business. “The biggest takeaway from the event was to see the great things our alumni are doing all across the world. The great work and success of the program is a direct result of these alumni and are a testament to the program’s longevity.”
