•  Connect with others who share similar professional interests
•    Meet new clients
•    Find employment
•    Exchange expertise
•    Form mentoring relationships
•    Remain engaged with College of Business at Illinois State University

These are just a few of reasons given by some of the 800+ Illinois State University graduates who have joined our College of Business Alumni Network (COBAN) group on LinkedIn since it was launched last fall.  While e-networking is great, nothing matches building relationships in person. So tap into the power of the COBAN network and join us for a fall event.  It is also a great chance to extend a Redbird welcome to our new dean, Scott Johnson!
