Mission of the MBAA

"Whatever you value, be committed to it and let nothing distract you from this goal. The uncommitted life, like Plato’s unexamined life, is not worth living."
Fr. Theodore Hesburgh

The Notre Dame MBA Association (MBAA) serves as faithful steward of the academic, professional, and interpersonal potential of Notre Dame MBA students. It is committed to maximizing opportunities for growth by fostering community, professionalism, scholarship, and personal integrity among students, and by serving as student advocate and liaison to MBA program administrators.

  • foster interaction and fellowship among MBA students and families, faculty, and administrators
  • shape and hone the academic experience
  • promote relationships with business leaders
  • avail resources and opportunities for scholarship and professional studies
