Get Involved

There are many ways in which you can get involved with Birmingham Business School Alumni.

Career Profiles

Our current and prospective students are inspired by the success of our alumni. Take a few minutes to share your experiences and how you have shaped your career post graduation, or read profiles of your fellow alumni.

Alumni Ambassadors

Choosing Birmingham is a daunting decision for overseas students studying away from home for the first time.  Our International Collaboration Map features Alumni Ambassadors who can offer advice, support and information about what it was like to live and study in Birmingham to prospective students.  The time commitment is minimal, and you will be fully supported in the role by the Alumni Office.

Contact bbsalumni@contacts.bham.ac.uk to register your interest.

Guest Lecturers

Help students frame their theoretical knowledge with practical advice.  Birmingham Business School regularly hosts alumni speaking in a range of areas like leadership, branding, ethics and corporate responsibility. Our Distinguished Leaders Series is an example of this.

If you would like to give our students the benefit of your experience, contact bbsalumni@contacts.bham.ac.uk

Supporting our new and prospective students

Our prospective students love to quiz our alumni, finding out about their career paths, experiences at university (both academic and social!) and tips for making the best of their time at Birmingham. Input from alumni is invaluable during:

  • Applicant visit days (where prospective students visit Birmingham)
  • Careers Fairs
  • Induction week

Contact bbsalumni@contacts.bham.ac.uk to register your interest.

Mentoring

Pass on your expertise to our current students through our alumni mentoring programmes. Alumni can help students shape their future career paths by sharing their knowledge and skills and helping them develop business relationships and networks.

Mentoring can be undertaken on a formal or informal basis. Contact bbsalumni@contacts.bham.ac.uk to find out more about the time commitments involved and how you can take part.

Offer projects and placements

Offering internships, projects or consultancy opportunities are great ways to get market research or business strategy intelligence into your business or fill a gap in your staffing.  Our students can bring expertise, enthusiasm and new perspectives to your organisation, while benefiting from your experience and guidance.

Contact bbsalumni@contacts.bham.ac.uk to find out more.

Giving

Circles of Influence, the University's innovative fundraising campaign is entering its next phase. With your support we can reach our ambitious new combined target for phase two of the campaign, £160 million, and change lives at Birmingham and across the world.
