Business School Launches E-magazine with Focus on Alumni Engagement

The Palumbo-Donahue School of Business has published the inaugural issue of Duquesne Business Leader, its new biannual e-magazine that focuses on alumni outreach and engagement.

The e-magazine provides a forum for building stronger links between alumni and the school. It features a sampling of the school’s accomplishments and addresses strategic plans for its future.

Dr. Dean McFarlin, dean of the Palumbo-Donahue School, believes that reaching alumni and keeping them involved is the key to helping the school achieve its goals for growth and progress.

We can’t achieve our strategic goals as a school without the support of our alumni and friends,” McFarlin said. “They provide advice, resources and jobs for our students. But that support requires engagement—alumni need to know what we are doing, what our goals are and how they can help. Moreover, they need to feel connected with us and that, by engaging with us, they can make a real difference in moving the school forward.”

The introductory issue of Duquesne Business Leader, which can be viewed online at, focuses on innovation; the school’s future direction; and the ways in which some of the school’s most distinguished alumni have changed their companies, their communities and the world.

The next edition of Duquesne Business Leader is scheduled for publication in October.
