Affinity Groups

Affinity Group

The Masters of Development Engineering houses five affinity groups of like-minded people linked by a common interest or purpose. Across the Blum Center’s community, students will connect around their interests while gaining meaningful mentorship from alumni and professionals. Our Affinity Groups allow students to build networks, create communities, and gain professional development opportunities.
