Another valuable career asset open to you as a Distance learning MBA student are the connections you will make during your studies, and the global community of WBS alumni that you will join on completion of your MBA. The WBS alumni website offers access to the latest alumni networking events, guest speaker events, and a platform to keep in touch with your fellow alumni via our directory.
You can connect with us even before you arrive: our students and alumni can offer you support and advice as you prepare to study here. Join us as a prospective student on LinkedIn and follow us on Twitter to get the latest news from WBS. Our LinkedIn group has over 24,000 members, making it the largest LinkedIn group in Europe and fifth worldwide of all Financial Times ranked business schools.
Once you are studying with us you can join one of our professional networks which bring together students, graduates, and our faculty to explore industry practice and the latest research in specific industry areas.
You can also join a group local to your home which will get you involved with students and graduates at social and educational events, in person and online, all over the world.
We make it easy for students to network with each other through our bespoke learning environment, my.wbs. We also make it easy for graduates to find each other through our Online Directory.
Our award-winning, Investors in People (IIP) accredited mentoring programme allows you to explore career options, workplace dilemmas and professional development challenges with someone who has already experienced similar situations. You’ll be mentored by a WBS alumnus or alumna for a period of two years, either during or beyond your studies.
Your connection with Warwick doesn’t end once you’ve completed your studies. As a WBS alumnus you will still be able to access our excellent online career resources and enjoy one free career consultation after graduation. You can also access enhanced services for an additional cost.
We also enable our alumni to discover cutting edge research, analysis and insights into issues as diverse as big data, leadership, strategy and behavioural science with our annual magazine Core. It’s a beautifully designed, compelling read that will ensure you’re enlightened and inspired by the very latest in business thinking.
You’ll also receive our alumni newsletter once a month which contains business research insights, media picks, videos, links to the latest ‘must attend’ events and more.
