Annual Conference

With the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Carnegie Mellon University canceled all campus events until August, including hosting the annual ABSAP Conference at the Tepper School of Business. In light of this reality, the ABSAP Board of Directors has decided to postpone our upcoming conference until July 2021. The decision to cancel the conference was not taken lightly but deemed necessary out of both concern for the health and safety of the ABSAP community and your families, and in anticipation of the travel and logistical challenges ahead. The Tepper School has agreed to host the conference next year and we are adjusting the schedule of host schools for future conferences.

Mark your calendar and note the new Monday evening to Thursday format based on feedback at the 2019 conference!

July 12-15, 2021

Tepper School of Business

Founded in 2001, The Association of Business School Alumni Professionals (ABSAP) is a network and resource for alumni professionals working in the top 30 business schools, as defined by the rankings of Bloomberg Businessweek for residential full-time MBA programs and U.S. News & World Report for undergraduate business programs.

Business schools face unique challenges in preparing students for the business world. The relationship with students is only the beginning as it continues beyond graduation into their lives as alumni. Managing global alumni networks is a critical component of a business school’s Advancement mission.

Everyone did an awesome job presenting - sessions and days flew by.  I walked away with a great list of ideas to explore for our school.  From a benchmarking perspective, it's also great to hear what everyone else has done or is prioritizing for their alumni.

Really all of the sessions were excellent this year - the best I have experienced yet. The most valuable part of the conference is just connecting and discussing everything with our peers. Such similar problems and experiences, there is always something to take away from every conversation.

Thank you to all involved in planning and managing this conference! The content was very useful and the event itself was well run. It also provided such an invaluable opportunity to meet so many smart and passionate people working in this industry that I can now call colleagues and friends​.
