Bringing the global alumni community together for a series of expert talks, discussions, and social events.

Wednesday 12 May 2021


Our annual Global Alumni Day provides an opportunity for University of Edinburgh Business School alumni to come together in a virtual setting in the first instance, but in coming years through a mix of virtual and in person events.

On 12 May, we will host a series of events that will transport alumni around the world. Each of the sessions will feature both alumni and academic speakers from the Business School, discussing the latest business trends, challenges, and opportunities.

The majority of sessions will take place around lunchtime local time and last around 30 minutes – we'll start at 05:30 BST (British Summer Time) with a session for alumni in the Asia Pacific region, and the last formal session of the day will take place at 20:30 BST with a session for alumni on the West Coast of the USA.

Plus, our Alumni Regional Leads will be running ‘post work’ social events (primarily virtual) around the world – a great chance to expand your network.

You can join as many or as few of the sessions as you like – you might be interested in hearing from alumni working in a specific part of the world, or you may prefer to hear from someone working in the same sector as yourself.

A key part of the day will be reconnecting with alumni. Through our innovative virtual events platform, you will have the chance to network and instant message, voice or video call to catch up with friends, or to make new connections who can support your professional development.

Register your interest today and we'll keep you posted with all the information you need for the day.
