When you enrol, study, graduate from, work at, or even just enquire about joining WBS, you will be welcomed into a diverse and open community.
Our community comprises over 45,000 graduates, plus all WBS students, our faculty and support staff, as well as a network of corporate partners. This community are your connections to future careers, global networks and friends for life.
Support when applying
If you’re considering applying for a course with us, our alumni and current students are happy to tell you all about WBS and offer you advice and support. Before you apply, if you want to speak to someone who’s studied with us get in touch with the recruitment team for your chosen course, and we’ll arrange it.
Thought leadership events
We want to share the latest ground-breaking research with our students and alumni, which is why we offer a wide range of events and our Change Maker Speaker Series, which brings together Change Makers from across the business world. Past speakers such as Kevin Wall (CEO Barclays International), Sir Gus O’Donnell (Former Permanent Secretary for Cabinet Office), and Dr Douglas Terrier (Chief Technologist at NASA), who shared their experiences of challenging the business norm to create a positive impact.
Your access to the WBS community doesn’t end when you graduate. You will have access to the WBS Alumni website, offering access to online journals, our Online Directory of fellow graduates, further development opportunities, events, and our award-winning Mentoring Programme.
Supporting our Change Makers
Our Investors in People accredited Mentoring Programme is open to current WBS students and our graduates who would like the support of an inspiring mentor, and alumni who want to support the next generation of WBS Change Makers by becoming a mentor. There is a fee for this service.
Current services for graduates include:
We also make available reading lists from the MBA, offer discounted subscriptions to magazines including The Economist, and enable you to retain your @wbs.ac.uk email address for life.
There are also a range of free, and discounted, careers services we make available to you both while you are here and after graduation.
There are many opportunities to engage with us as a business too. Our Services for Business section of the website covers recruiting our graduates, commissioning student projects, working with us to develop your career, and developing deeper organisational relationships with us.
