DAVENPORT, Iowa—The St. Ambrose University H.L. McLaughlin MBA program is celebrating 35 years—and asking its more than 3,600 graduates to contribute stories about their MBA experience.

"This is a very exciting anniversary for the St. Ambrose Master of Business Administration program, which has helped advance the careers of many professionals," said MBA Director Teresa Hutchinson. "We'd love to hear our alum's stories and offer them an opportunity to reconnect with their classmates."

Alums are asked to share their stories or anecdotes by email: HutchinsonTeresaL@sau.edu, or by posting to the St. Ambrose MBA Facebook page. The deadline is March 15. In addition, these stories will be shared at an anniversary celebration, which will take place March 20. More details can be found at www.sau.edu/mba.

The St. Ambrose H.L. McLaughlin MBA provides a student-centered, convenient program delivered by highly qualified and skilled faculty who capture today's complex world of business by incorporating real-world experience. The part-time program is geared toward working professionals, with classes conveniently scheduled one night a week in eight-week sessions.

Drawing employees from more than 100 companies and non-profit firms, the St. Ambrose MBA is offered in six Iowa locations (Burlington, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Muscatine, Ottumwa and Waterloo), and on the Rock Island Arsenal.

A full-time, one-year option is offered in Davenport with five start dates throughout the year. Deferred tuition payment options are available and some students also receive tuition assistance from their employers.
