50th Anniversary Celebration

"The Howard University School of Business 50th Anniversary Celebration and gala will take place in 2021 due to COVID-19"

50th Anniversary Celebration


The Howard University School of Business is officially announcing the commemoration of the 50-year legacy of providing elite business education. Corporate executives represented on the Howard University School of Business Board of Visitors are spearheading the year-long celebration, along with a 50th Anniversary Committee of prominent alumnus, leading philanthropists, and corporate sponsors. With a community of nearly 11,000 alumni, the leadership has focused its efforts on recruiting the most highly qualified students and has successfully transformed them into some of the most accomplished professionals in the world of business.

​The purpose of the 50th Anniversary is to tactically inspire alumni to establish scholarship funds, invest in the expansion of programs and centers, and modernize the facilities and technology labs. The celebration supports the university’s strategic plan, Howard Forward, by encouraging and optimizing the traditional practices and promoting excellence.

​Observance of the Golden Anniversary celebration will occur through fundraising and alumni receptions, innovative lectures, the development of contemporary programming, and will culminate in a gala event during Homecoming in October 2020.
