If it’s February, it means the Monte Carlo Gala has finally arrived. The Smith School’s signature event of the year brings together current MBAs, part-time MBAs, Masters students, Alumni, Staff and Faculty together for one special night in some of DC’s finest venues.
Last year, it was held at the cavernous Andrew Mellon Auditorium across from the Smithsonian; but this year it was held at the historic Willard Intercontinental. Just a block down Pennsylvania Ave from the White House, we were celebrating in the very same rooms that hosted DC’s top politicians and generals dating back to the Civil War.
Scheduled late enough in the year when we could all gather and reminisce, but not quite enough yet to feel tinges of a farewell sendoff, the Monte Carlo Gala is a priceless opportunity to form lasting memories of the MBA experience.
