eMBA Alumni Project Launches a Non-profit Benefiting Multi-university Executive and Established MBA Alumni

Share Article

The eMBA Alumni Project is a non-profit alumni network that was started in 2010 by Executive MBA alumni from Chapman University and Loyola Marymount University in Southern California. It is composed of members who meet regularly to bridge the gap between MBA alumni working in their local business communities and the resources that those communities provide. They've found that the relationship encourages and helps foster exceptional continued education, engaged community involvement, professional career development and building networking opportunities.

Through the vision of their co-founders, Somchai Moy (2010, EMBA Chapman University) and Joe Hernandez (2009, EMBA Chapman University), the organization strives to create an environment that brings together high caliber executive MBA alumni and successful business organizations so they can share and exchange working knowledge/ideas in a trusted environment.

While attending MBA programs at The George Argyros School of Business & Economics, both men learned there was a need to build a strong professional network in Southern California that was not a university specific alumni association. Both Mr. Moy and Mr. Hernandez shared the desire to create an organization that would focus not only on the advancement of the alumni’s respective business schools, but the professional advancement of the alumni as well. Furthermore, during the program they observed the challenges that several of their classmates had to overcome with the increase in tuition costs as well as the high rate of unemployment during the economic downturn in 2008 through 2010. With the continuing rise in cost of post baccalaureate education programs, they were determined to establish supplemental scholarship funds to assist qualified executive MBA candidates who demonstrated effective leadership in the strategic and tactical business environment.

The eMBA alumni network hopes to become an integral part of a new breed of business executives where businesses and community organizations all work to improve their bottom line of positive financial, economic and social outcomes.

The organization is accepting new members and those interested in supporting their mission of creating a better business community to pave way for a more thriving business future.
