Application to Contact an Alumni Advisor

The MBA Bridges programme holds the contact details of alumni volunteers who can provide advice, information, or support to current students or other alumni. These volunteers are called Alumni Advisors.

By completing this form, you request the contact details of an Alumni Advisor. If the MBA Alumni Office identifies an Advisor who meets your needs, the office will introduce you, typically by email. The onus is then on you to pursue the conversation.

If the MBA Alumni Office cannot identify a suitable Advisor, you will be informed and asked if you would like your application to remain on record.

This is not a formal mentorship programme that promises the support of an Advisor for a specified period. Alumni Advisors vary in their time commitment. Your assistance may range from a single email about vacancies at a particular company to sustained networking support in a new country.

Please be clear about your expectations so that you can be matched appropriately.

If you have completed your studies, you may volunteer as an Alumni Advisor and seek assistance from other Alumni Advisors at the same time. For more information about contacting an Alumni Advisor, please complete the form below.

If you have any questions or prefer to apply by phone, please contact Ella Stewart, MBA Alumni Relations Officer, at e.stewart@bham.ac.uk or 0121 414 6694
