Alumni Benefits

Benefits for Alumni

Overview

Our first priority in the global alumni programme is to offer exclusive benefits and services for our students and graduates, enabling personal and professional development.

Keeping in touch

Get involved in your nearest alumni committee. Attending their events is an excellent way to network with other Business School and University alumni.

Keep in touch with the Business School through our social media channels: Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter.

Graduate Connections is an online networking tool, brought to you by the Careers Service, which allows you to get in touch directly with graduates working in a diverse range of careers and organisations. 

Our dedicated Business School alumni newsletter, Alumni Matters, is delivered directly to your inbox as a graduate of the school. It is published three times a year. If you have graduated, but are not receiving Alumni Matters, let us know.

Services and facilities

Our alumni continue to have access to the University's Careers Service for three years after graduation.

There are many opportunities for continuing professional development available to you as a Newcastle graduate.

Need a meeting room or events/conference space with state of the art AV capabilities? Space in the Business School is available to alumni free of charge. Terms and conditions apply. Email the events team to discuss your requirements.

Through the Student Progress service you can order a replacement copy of your transcript or degree certificate.

Careers Services

The University's award winning Careers Service exists to help you make the most of your unique skills and experiences. Whether you are seeking a graduate career, going on to further study or starting your own business, a range of support is available to help you realise your potential while you are studying and for up to three years after you have graduated.

We have a dedicated Careers Advisor in the Business School who can help provide support for your career goals. You can email us to discuss your requirements.

Meet your Alumni Relations Manager

Hi,

I'm Ginny Glithero, your Alumni Relations Manager, I started this role in December 2017 and have really enjoyed working with the Business School alumni community so far.

We have over 25,000 graduates, spanning over 130 countries so there are many more of you I need to meet. I can't wait to get to know you all a little better. I am your first point of contact for you if you want to get involved with the University or Business School once you have graduated so please add me on LinkedIn or contact me via email if you want to get in touch.

Looking forward, I want to continue to build an alumni community where graduates have a reciprocal relationship with the School.  Where we add value to the lives of our graduates, no matter when you graduated or what you've gone on to do.  

With the arrival of our new Director and our new strategic direction, I will be looking at ways to embed alumni in to academic programmes and the student experience, ensuring our students get exposure to real-world businesses. 

I will also be looking at ways to strengthen the ties we have with alumni who are no longer in the region, and especially oversees.

Best wishes, 

Ginny
