Alumni Events

The Carlson School and University of Minnesota are closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak, and aligning our actions with current University policy and recommendations of the Minnesota Department of Health and CDC. With these recommendations and the health and safety of the Carlson School community in mind, we have cancelled or postponed all in person events through the months of May and June. We will be offering select events virtually, information for those is available below. 

Explore upcoming events that are designed for alumni to grow their networks, develop their business knowledge, and reconnect. Whether you’re interested in hearing lessons in leadership, extending your professional network, or simply catching up with classmates, the Carlson School offers a variety of events to stay connected and engaged.
