Alumni: staying with them through life changing years of their lives

Francesca talks about her role in staying in touch with BBS Alumni

I went from not knowing anything about our Alumni, to realising how important our past students really are. We are perfectly capable of becoming friends with the students as soon as they enter Level 1, and stay with them all the way through the most complex, incredible, life changing years of both their academic and personal lives, yet when they leave, it seems that most become like strangers. Strangers, who will move home, change their email addresses and lose all ties with their University life. It is crucial that we remain in contact with our graduates, whether they are UG, PG or MBA’s.

My role is to ensure our students, particularly MBA and Masters in Management, remain in contact with us, by updating their data on a regular basis, keeping them involved with all the goings on in the Business School and holding events in order for them to keep in touch with each other as well as ourselves. Our next event is being held at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery in London in March, and we hope it will be as successful as the Aston Martin and Albemarle events were in the  last two years. I look forward to contributing towards keeping Brunel’s position in the rankings this year, and building upon the success which has already been achieved.
