On May 8, the Telfer School of Management and the Telfer School’s Alumni Association welcomed alumni and donors to its annual donor recognition event “Back to Telfer - Come Back. Give Back.” This event aims to unite alumni and donors to celebrate and encourage graduates to Come back and Give back to their alma mater, the Telfer School.
In addition to celebrating our alumni, we also presented the following awards:
