Alumni support and opportunities for current students

Our alumni community is a friendly network of professionals who have studied at the Business School. We currently have more than 40,000 alumni spread across 145 different countries. 

As a student we encourage you to take advantage of different opportunities to connect with our alumni during your studies. Many alumni are more than happy to share their career journeys, offer advice, take part in dissertation research or talk about how to make the most of your experiences at Leeds and beyond.
