Your Alumni Network
Welcome to the School of Business and Economics’ Alumni web pages.
With hundreds of undergraduates and postgraduates successfully graduating from the School of Business and Economics each year, when you leave Loughborough University, you automatically become part of a global network of alumni, which is open to you for the rest of your life.
The Alumni Association is your main point of contact with the University and runs many events which you can get involved in. Membership of the Alumni Association is free - all you have to do is keep them informed of your current address.
School of Business and Economics Graduates
The School of Business and Economics officially opened in 2010 and graduated its first set of students in 2011. Thus, all of you – our graduates – are new to the School in a sense. Please know however that the two areas of Business and Economics will remain distinct under the umbrella of the School of Business and Economics, headed by the Dean, Professor Angus Laing.
These pages are a great way to keep in touch with the School of Business and Economics and find out about the various alumni activities that we organise for our graduates. In addition to the magazine that the Alumni Association produces, we at the School of Business and Economics produce our own magazine – Inspire – featuring news and achievements from students, staff and graduates, as well as highlighting some of the very latest research emerging from the School.
In addition, we would like to meet you in person whenever we can and so we are planning on organising alumni events every year or two so you can meet up with old friends and network with other Business and Economics graduates. 2011 marked 40 years of management education and 20 years of retail education here at Loughborough, with some special events held to celebrate those anniversaries. And autumn 2012 marked the inaugural SBE Distinguished Alumni Awards event. Find out more>>
How to Get Involved
There are lots of ways you can get involved with our alumni activities. You may simply wish to inform us of how you are getting on in your career or would like to give a testimonial of your time here which could encourage future students to choose Loughborough and current students to make the most of the opportunities in front of them.
Many of you will also be aware of the priceless experience that the Placement Year (compulsory for Business and Management undergraduates and now offered as an option for all Economics undergraduates from 2013), so you may wish to consider whether you could offer undergraduate business students placement opportunities in your organisation.
