Networking at STIX

Last month the Association for International Business (AIB) hosted a Business Networking Cocktail for Baruch’s alumni and graduate communities at STIX Mediterranean Grill on 23rd street. The event began at 7:30pm and lasted until 10:30pm, and had well over 60 in attendance.

Even with the uncooperative weather several alumni were early, eager to network with current Baruch MBAs.  By 8:00pm the cocktail was in full swing as students who just got out of their 5:50 classes teemed in, along with others who opted to cut their 7:30 classes short. Networking was the name of the game as wallets and purses flipped open, business cards exchanged hands, and the ever present, multi-purpose iPhone was made the instrument of choice by some at the event.

At the end of the night there was a consensus among students and alumni that the event had been a great success. For this, organizers thanked Lene Skou, Deputy Director of the Weissman Center for International Business; Lisa Poullard-Burton, Director of Alumni Relations; Professor Clifford Wymbs, Coordinator of the International Business program and AIB advisor; and the wonderful alumni and students in attendance. Without their support and hard work this event would not have been possible.

The Association for International Business at Baruch College (AIB) is a multidisciplinary graduate student organization for student-led learning experiences relevant to our global business environmen
