Candy sounds like a great dinner during this stressful Finals Week!
I wanted to catch you up on the great events that have been happening this semester!
Even though the MBA Alumni Association is an organization for those who have graduated from the MBA program at Canisius, students are welcome to attend their events which are held throughout the year. From networking to presentations, the events are great for the professional development of the Canisius MBA community.
On Thursday, April 16th, the MBAA Association held a networking event and fundraiser for their MBA scholarship fund at Flying Bison Brewery. This event was great because we got to tour the brewery and see how Flying Bison craft beer is produced locally in Buffalo! With the recent economic growth of WNY, there has been a surge of local craft breweries. Being able to learn, first-hand, from the Brewery Owner’s son on how they make their beer was fascinating! I took a Biochemistry course during my year of post-baccalaureate studies (back when I thought I would be an OBGYN and go to a DO school to study medicine). For the laboratory portion of the course, we spent six weeks fermenting grape juice with various sugar and yeast concentrations to understand the fermentation process. Since beer is made with a very similar fermentation process, it was exciting to see the commercial applications of what was learned in Biochem lab!
This event was the second to last event for the school year for the MBA Alumni Association. Next week will be the Graduate Business Programs and MBAA Annual Mixer, which will include a silent auction and the Annual Awards presentation to several notable Canisius community members. If you’re looking to network more with the Canisius business community as a student (or prospective student or alumni) I would totally suggest you come to the Annual Mixer on Friday May 8th so make sure to get your tickets to the event!
Since I’ll keep this censored (so many funny videos involving alcohol that would be totally inaprorpo), here is a funny clip about candy!
