Moore School Business Leadership Dinner and Awards Program

"Bridging the World

The Darla Moore School of Business is pleased to welcome you and your guests to this year's Business Leadership Dinner and Awards Program to honor and celebrate our 2011 Distinguished Award Recipients.

The Moore School is uniquely positioned to bridge the world, from our leadership in research to innovative degree programs to partnerships with companies. Not only do we understand business in various parts of the world, we act as the conduit to bring together our partners, friends and students and help them explore opportunities to do business in new ways and in new places.   

This year's Business Leadership Dinner is designed to honor our awardees, offer increased time for networking, reflect the school’s global connections and provide our distinctive student body with scholarships. We have created sponsorships at various levels to allow you to choose the one that best suits your desire to support the Moore School. Additionally, a silent auction will offer individuals the opportunity to contribute at the dinner. The net proceeds from this event will allow the Moore School to underwrite scholarships to more students as we continue to educate the best and brightest of our future business leaders.
