Our annual SMU MBA Alumni Homecoming was held on 8 December 2017. This year, we were privileged to be one of the first Alumni Groups to use the newly renovated The ALcove for our event. The space comfortably accommodated our crowd of around 100 pax, comprising of alumni, students and faculty members.
Our Homecoming theme for this year was an East Meets West Whisky Appreciation conducted by Cooperhouse Asia, exclusive distributor of the Beam Suntory brand in South East Asia. Our alumni and guests were treated to 5 different bottles of whiskies of Scottish and Japanese origin, conducted by Jamey Merkel, brand ambassador of Beam Suntory.
In addition, we werevery proud to secure a sponsorship this year, valued at $2,500 from Cooperhouse Asia, and SMU alumnus Lester Chan (MBA, 2012), CEO of Fund Singapore, for the Homecoming event. On top of the Whisky Appreciation, whisky bottles were also given out to the Graduating Batch of 2017, the 2016 batch which had the largest attendance for the event, and also Jose Vito (MBA, 2016) for correctly answering the trivia question at the end of the Whisky Appreciation.
All in all, it was a raucous, joyous celebration, and a night to remember!
We look forward to MBA Alumni Homecoming party in 2018!
