Alumni, students and staff gathered in Edinburgh on 26 January 2019 at the annual Alumni Burns Night Gala Dinner.

Now in its 15th year, this annual event has become firmly established in the School’s social calendar, attended by alumni from across our global network as well as our current students and staff.

This year it was held at The Balmoral Hotel, with over 200 guests attending, including alumni who had travelled from Europe and North America specially for the occasion.

If there was a rating for this, I am sure that the Business School would be number one.

George Mackintosh, who graduated from the School with a BCom in 1979 and who regularly supports the School in his capacity as both an Entrepreneur in Residence of the School’s Entrepreneurship Club and a Business School Associate, provided the Immortal Memory and Jana Doughty from the MBA class of 2017 said the Selkirk Grace. Guests were welcomed by the Deputy Dean of the Business School, Professor Jonathan Crook.

Many of the alumni present were invited as a mark of gratitude for the continued support they had given to the School across a range of activities including student development, student recruitment, teaching and research.
