More than 900 invitations have been sent to alumni and friends of the Plymouth State College
Master of Business Administration program (MBA) to attend its first annual alumni dinner and
25th Anniversary Celebration. The festivities will begin at 6 p.m. Friday, October 13 at C.R.
Sparks in Bedford.
Governor Jeanne Shaheen and her Republican challenger Gordon Humphrey are planning to join
the celebration of the state’s oldest and largest evening MBA program. Each is expected to
remark on economic development in New Hampshire.
We are proud to have Governor Shaheen and Mr. Humphrey as our guests at this historic
event, says Duncan McDougall, professor and chair of the business department at Plymouth
State College. Our graduates have achieved great things, and this year we begin a tradition
of celebrating their success.
New Hampshire businesses, many of which have hired one or more Plymouth State MBA
graduates, are supporting the event through sponsorships. The event sponsors are Berry,
Dunn, McNeil & Parker, LLC, one of the largest accounting firms in northern New England, and
Len-Tex Corporation of North Walpole. Each has donated $2,500. Patron sponsorships of
$1,000 have come from Hypertherm, Inc. of Hanover, Brown Furniture, Inc. of West Lebanon,
New England Electric Wire Corp. of Lisbon and New Hampshire Electric Cooperative, Inc. of
Plymouth. Speare Memorial Hospital of Plymouth is also a sponsor.
The Plymouth State College MBA program is offered at seven sites throughout the state:
Conway, Hanover, Keene, Littleton, Manchester, Plymouth and Rochester. All courses are
taught by full-time PSC faculty.
