Celebrating 100 years of teaching Business at the University of Edinburgh

Friday 15 May–Sunday 17 May 2020


During the academic year 2019/20, we celebrate 100 years of teaching business and we're pleased to be creating a number of special events that give you a chance to connect with alumni from the Business School.

Our Alumni 100 Weekend is the flagship event of our celebrations and we look forward to welcoming alumni back to Edinburgh from around the world.

We’re celebrating how we continue to write the future, and invite you to share your stories with fellow alumni at this unique celebration.

The weekend will include a variety of events including:

  • 100 Years Business School 'Ethical and Responsible Leadership' Conference
  • Informal Drinks Reception at the Business School
  • Social Activities including a private tour of the National Gallery of Scotland
  • Celebrating the impact of our alumni at the Alumni 100 Reunion Evening and Gala Dinner at the Playfair Library
  • Edinburgh landmark walking tour
  • Business School Farewell Brunch

As part of the 100 Year Anniversary, we are asking alumni to share their story following graduation - everyone who submits a story will be in with a chance of being listed in the Alumni 100.

This list will feature a mix of people working in different fields but who are all making an impact. During the Alumni 100 Reception we'll hear from alumni who have made the list and will celebrate the great work our alumni are involved in.

Whether you are a recent graduate, or a more established member of the network, we would love to see you there.

All you need to do at the moment is register your interest. We'll then come back to you and you can either select to attend specific events within the weekend or be part of the entire celebration.
