Speed Networking with Duke Alumni

Friday, September 20, 2019
10:00 am to 11:15 am

Whether you're interested in meeting professionals in industry, startup, government, or academia, you'll find leaders in these sectors among the members of The Graduate School's Board of Visitors (login via Duke Box to view bios). This group advises the Dean of The Graduate School and helps to support and promote the mission of the school. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet these members in a speed-networking context. Registration closes Wednesday, September 11 at 11:59 pm.

Not sure what you'll get out of a speed networking experience? Xiaoxuan (Jessie) Yang, M.S. student in Earth and Ocean Sciences, was skeptical when she registered for a recent speed networking session, too. She shares what she gained in "Five Reasons You Should Try Speed Networking, Too."

If you are a Graduate School student, you will receive confirmation of your registration and the location of the event by Friday, September 13.

This event is sponsored by The Graduate School's Professional Development Series. Questions? Contact The Graduate School's professional development team at
