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.
The School of Business and Economics officially formed in 2010 and graduated its first set of students in 2011, with the discipline Information Management joining in 2013. Thus, all of you – our graduates – are new to the School in a sense.
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 several special events held to celebrate those anniversaries.
Autumn 2012 marked the first-ever SBE Awards Dinner (full news item here) With 2013 bearing witness to several School-specific BOND events and other alumni-orientated activities, as well as our second SBE Awards Dinner held in November ()
How to Get Involved
There are many 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.
