Alumni Events

Welcome Baker Alumni

Over the years, I’ve seen Baker alumni do a lot of incredible things and heard even more stories that encapsulate the spirit of our alma mater, but I’m not sure there’s ever been a more exciting time to be part of the Baker family than right now. We’re building big businesses, exploring exciting new enterprises, leading major American cities, and — more than anything — we’re winning. As you’ll see on this site, our fellow alumni are getting awards and taking prominent positions in their fields at a whirlwind pace.

Here’s a quick overview of our new alumni site, where we intend to keep you engaged and excited about what is going on at Baker. Learn more about the Alumni Advisory Council and scholarships. View the Baker Proud archives. Use the alumni section to learn more about your alma mater and former classmates. If you would like to know more about Baker on a daily basis be sure to join our social networks.

Associate Manager, Engineering Project Management and Integration Office
NASA – Johnson Space Center | Houston, TX
“Often being a good leader is less about knowing the work, and more about knowing your people. The breadth of the Baker Experience provided me opportunities to learn the important life skills to become a successful leader at work and at home.”


Founder and CEO of PayIt
Baker provided unique leadership opportunities at every turn, from Greek life to sports, to interterm along with faculty and staff that cared enough to challenge you while cultivating the natural leadership qualities we all have inside us.


LaSalle Investment Management | Chicago, Illinois
Baker gave me the confidence and discipline to learn the industry I chose (financial) and then to appreciate always learning and taking on more responsibility to help my company achieve their goals. As I help and contribute to the company, they give back to me in the form of promotion and higher-level responsibilities. Baker gave me the foundation to achieve where I am today (and I’m not done!).
