Imperial student studying

We continue to provide opportunities for alumni to connect and network during this time. Below you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions relating to the School’s response to the pandemic.

Are any upcoming alumni events still scheduled?

Alumni can connect and network through various online opportunities. Our alumni platform Plexus offers a great way to connect with alumni virtually and stay in touch with Imperial College London and the Business School. Live Q&A sessions with alumni are also hosted there.

While our in-person events have been postponed for the foreseeable future, we are developing opportunities to engage online such as professional development webinars. Please check our website for updates.

Our Executive Education team are still running programmes remotely; if you are interested in further professional development take a look at the courses on offer.

What Careers support is available to alumni?

Imperial College Business School alumni continue to have access to Careers’ support. Alumni can request a 1-2-1 appointment with a careers consultant to discuss their career planning and next steps, or to benefit from a mock interview. Alumni can also register to receive our fortnightly alumni Careers bulletin, which includes information about job opportunities that may be of interest.

For more details or to request an appointment, contact our Careers team.

    Our students are facing uncertain times ahead and your advice is needed more than ever. Your guidance can make a difference.
