Like everyone else, business school students (and alumni) need to let off a little steam every once in a while. They’ll start off this week with a bit of networking, catch up with alumni at Atlanta’s premier social club on Wednesday, and, at Olin Business School, celebrate the end of the week at the school’s Halloween party. Stay tuned: There might even be a costume contest at said party.
