Top 10 Most Engaged MHA Alumni Groups

Welcome to our Annual List of the 2012 Top 10 Most Engaged MHA Alumni Groups.  In particular, these programs provide insight into how active the school, students, and alumni are on social networks.  Ultimately this is important because this list shows the level of engagement these schools have with respect to the alumni from their school.  Although much of the accomplishment is due to alumni participation, there is no doubt these excellent programs had an impact on the ways alumni choose to stay connected.  We are proud of these programs for maintaining some of the highest academic standards, while still finding time to allow open communication with students, alumni, and the public.

Our list was developed based off of a standard formula.  This formula took into account the number of participating alumni in the programs alumni Linkedin Group, whether the program had a dedicated Alumni Association for MHA Graduates, dedicated Alumni Website, dedicated Alumni Newsletter, and a Alumni Facebook Group.  The sole requirement for this list was a dedicated Linkedin Alumni Group.  We sorted through numerous programs and developed a formula where the perfect score is 100.  For more detailed information, or if you would like to submit your school for next year’s list, please contact us.
