The Aston Business School Alumni Network - A World of Support

When you graduate you will automatically become a part of a vast network of 25,000 Aston Business School alumni, in over 120 countries, with more than 1,000 graduates joining each year.

What can the Alumni Network do for you now?

Our alumni give back to Aston Business School by supporting students, giving advice and helping with contacts and industry information. During your course, you have the opportunity to connect with alumni at events and online.

There are several reasons you may like to contact alumni:

  • Expand your professional network (learn from the experiences of alumni, their career path, success stories and mistakes, cultural differences).
  • Insider information and advice.
  • Information on current opportunities (what recruiters look for, how to apply).
  • Insider introductions and recommendations.
