How you can support the Business School



When you graduate from Campbell, you make us proud of all your achievements after graduation. As a modest token of our pride in you, we grant each year two awards: an Outstanding Alumni Award and an Outstanding Young Alumni award. These awards recognize the success of our graduates and affirm the value of a Campbell Business School degree.

Our Outstanding Alumni Award goes to a professional Campbell Business graduate who has achieved a high level of professional standing while maintaining the ethical integrity we value at Campbell. Our Outstanding Young Alumni Award is awarded to a relatively more recent Campbell Business graduate who has achieved significant junior-level success since graduation. Below are lists of recently recognized award recipients. Imagine yourself on these lists someday!
