Master's Alumni Advisory Board

Since the early 2000s, Duke Economics’ master’s programs have thrived, growing in size, sophistication, breadth, and global recognition. While we tend to focus on the master’s program’s achievements, the greatest success is in the achievements of its alumni. To that end, Duke Economics would like to recognize that success, and also tap into the creative wisdom and broad experiences of a select group of alumni with exceptional careers, by creating a Master’s Alumni Advisory Board (MAAB).

The purpose of the Master's Alumni Advisory Board is to provide guidance on the current and future direction of our Master's programs. Members will serve either a 2020-2022 term or 2021-2023 term. 

For information on the board or any questions, contact Wendy Stocum
