Imagine it is the year 2022 and you have just received your invitation to the “Duke CCMBA Class of 2012 Reunion”. Shooters has been converted into an oxygen bar named “High Flyers”. The invitation reads:
Dear CCMBA 2012 Alum,
As the MBA class that has the highest net worth and social capital in the world, we humbly invite you to return to Durham, North Carolina on the evening of May 5, 2022 for a 10 Year Reunion.
The Fuqua team looks forward to welcoming you home for this event.

Fast-forward to May 5, 2022. The High Flyers wait staff is helping prepare the room for the exclusive private event that Duke is holding. Security is at its peaks due to the high profile crowd that will be attending. Sandra and Yasmine can’t help but chat with Brad the bartender about all the excitement.
Let’s listen in to what they’re saying…shalllllll weeee!
Sandra: “Yasmine, you know what this event is tonight right?”
Yasmine: “I heard it was a class reunion, but I’ve never seen so much hoopla over a class reunion before.”
Sandra: “It’s a reunion alright, this is the Duke CCMBA 2012 class. Apparently the cumulative net worth of everyone in the room is 10% of the world’s overall net worth. People like Abe Kim who owns the Uncle Abe’s coffee chain that bought out Starbucks. Nick Sarraf, the guy that created the Nu-phone. Talk about revolutionary…it’s hard to believe we ever had to carry a phone with us rather than just having the chip implant.”
Brad chimes in: “Hey ladies, what’s all the chatter about? Don’t tell me you two are excited to see Lady A tonight?”
Sandra squeals: “WHATTTTTTTTTT???!!!! THE Lady A is coming? I love Ayisha
