The Jabs Young Alumni Board (YAB) exists to realize the full potential of the MSU Jake Jabs College of Business & Entrepreneurship (Jabs) community by strengthening connections between young alumni, current Jabs students, and the wider Jabs community.

Our founding mission for this board is twofold:

  1. Be a conduit for connection between young Jabs alumni and current undergraduate
  2. Create forums for young Jabs alumni to meet, interact, and build relationships.
    • We endeavor to engage with a meaningful number of the 1,500+ current
      Jabs undergraduate students and 11,000+ Jabs alumni.
