Ever since the inception of the UD MBA Student Association, First Fridays have been a tradition. A tradition which started as a trial for giving a safe place to the young leaders to hone their networking skills, saw immense potential eventually. It picked up pace and before anyone could realize, it became everyone’s favorite. 

So on the first Friday of every month, students, faculty and staff would pop up at the evergreen and charming with its rustic vibes- the Deer Park Tavern, located behind the One South Main campus, just a few walking steps from the Lerner. In an informal setting and over a couple of drinks, they gathered to build great relationships. The students found it a safe haven to indulge and interact with each other, and to come out of their comfort zones and immerse themselves into the art of networking.

Unfortunately, as the entire world grappled with the Covid-19 pandemic and social interactions became a distant reality, this tradition also lost its way. But, with the rebooting of MBASA 2.0, the current MBASA team has been able to successfully launch the First Friday tradition and it is back in full swing. These MBA students have never missed an opportunity to bring people together notwithstanding the rains or the summer. This dynamic group is doing an amazing job with keeping up the tradition and is sure to live up to the mark set up by the alumni.
