Imperial College Business School’s alumni community is accomplished, inspiring and diverse. Our alumni are the School’s greatest advocates and supporters. We rely on the support of our dedicated alumni to assist with our events and activities and to help realise the School’s strategic goals.
We are always keen to grow our supporter base with our talented alumni. Volunteering your time strengthens your link to the Business School community and provides you with opportunities to continuously develop your professional and personal skills.
Below are some of the activities which you can support. We welcome the interest of alumni across all programmes. As a volunteer, you will receive support from our team to ensure a positive and rewarding experience.
Imperial College Business School Careers need alumni support across a range of activities and initiatives. You can provide invaluable resources through offering placements, internships or consultancy projects for students.
You can also volunteer to be part of alumni panels or speak at Careers events organised by the team. Or provide job opportunities to students and encourage your organisations to hire our graduates.
Students have many opportunities throughout the academic year to network with alumni. These events include alumni-student networking socials organised by student-led Career Clubs, alumni panels during student inductions, special programme competitions that require alumni judges or campus-based recruitment and information sessions for prospective students.
You can support students by offering to share your expertise at speaking opportunities or attend networking events.
More than 9,000 Business School alumni live or work in the UK and we are always keen to develop more opportunities for our diverse community to come together. You can support our efforts by organising your class reunionor engaging with the alumni-led Professional Interest Networks.
You can also offer your company’s premises for events to allow us to host alumni gatherings off-campus.
Imperial College Business School alumni span more than 130 countries and regardless of where you are in the world, we want you to maintain your connection to the alumni community and the Business School. Imperial College’s Alumni Relations team oversees more than 35 active alumni regional groups. Click here to see the full list or complete the official group registration form if you are interested in starting a new group.
The Business School’s Recruitment team also needs recent graduates to assist with attracting the best students and future leaders at international recruitment fairs.
Our Alumni Relations team maintains a strong online presence and offers interesting content to our alumni through Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, our monthly alumni e-bulletin, Alumni Insights, and website. We encourage you to like, share and engage with our social media channels online to help increase the reach of information to the alumni community.
We need you to help us highlight the success of our alumni community through alumni profiles and case studies that we use across the School’s various communication channels. Share your success, or the success of your former classmates. We are also interested in hearing from alumni with a talent for blog writing and you can see examples of what your fellow alumni have written.
One of the easiest ways you can offer your support is to connect with prospective students, offer holders, current students or fellow alumni via email. You might answer questions about career development, share your specific industry experience or be asked to offer insights on studying at the Business School. Students particularly find this connection useful when preparing for job interviews or applying for graduate programmes at major companies.
The Alumni Advisory Board (AAB) provides an important vehicle to foster an active relationship between the Business School and our alumni in an advisory capacity.
Alumni from across the School’s programmes serve as AAB members and meet three times a year to provide support and advice on a variety of topics.
The Business School is reviewing the AAB’s application process and not accepting new applications at this time. We will post an update on the application process later this year.
We're currently looking for alumni to share their personal career and job application experiences, so that students can learn from your reflections and advice. Our Alumni Careers Insights project hopes to gather videos of alumni career stories from across all sectors and functions. Think you can help? Find out more and register your interest.
