A father and his three sons all earned their MBAs together from Suffolk University's Sawyer Business School this week, after five years of night school together. They even took the same classes!

Thomas Demakes, 69, and his sons Elias, Timothy and Andrew all work for the family business, Old Neighborhood Foods. Elias, Timothy and Andrew will be the fourth generation of Demakes to run the company. Thomas, CEO of Old Neighborhood, told The Boston Globe that their joint venture was not only a way to keep the family business strong, but a way to stay in contact with his sons outside of work.
