About the Chapter
The University of Missouri–St. Louis Business Alumni Chapter proudly exists to serve the needs of more than 27,000 business graduates. Each year the chapter sponsors the Salute to Business Achievement Awards, recognizing graduates of UMSL Business who have demonstrated exceptional personal and professional accomplishments to the University, their profession and or their/community. The Chapter also hosts networking events that are designed to connect fellow graduates of the college and promote the College of Business Administration.
Through the years our mission has remained unchanged:
To stimulate and maintain interest of graduates in the community in the work of the University of Missouri-St. Louis College of Business Administration.
In association with the College of Business Administration, provide a vehicle for continuing alumni education and professional development.
To provide opportunities to graduates for wider acquaintanceship and communication with fellow graduates in the university community on both a professional and social level.
To provide a medium whereby the alumni of the College of Business Administration may work together for the improvement not only of the College of Business Administration but also of the entire University of Missouri-St. Louis and the surrounding community.
To act as an informal advisory board to the Dean of the College of Business Administration

Message from Dean Charlie Hoffman
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of UMSL Business and we have a lot to be proud of! Phase one of UMSL’s first-ever dedicated business building, Anheuser-Busch Hall, is under-roof, and external brick and stone work is moving right along. Watch for a grand opening date in August 2017. In December, around 300 UMSL Business students graduated, joining our body of alumni, nearly 29,000 strong! Based on a 2015 survey by UMSL Career Services, 100% of accounting and 92.5% of all business undergraduate alumni have jobs or are pursuing a graduate degree within 6 months of graduation.
