Alumni reunions and networks

Our global network of alumni has more than 12,000 members across over 100 countries.

We try to meet as many alumni as possible when travelling around the world. Places we have visited recently include Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, Lagos, Taiwan, New Delhi and Mumbai.

We hold regular 6-monthly events in the UK that take place in London and The North.

Wherever we are across the globe, we will invite you to the nearest alumni meet-up.

Sheffield Alumni in London (UK) Network

The Management School, the Department of Economics and the School of Law co-host a range of fun and entertaining alumni engagement events in London.

With 2 events averaging per year, this vibrant and diverse network gives alumni from the University a unique opportunitity to build professional networks, learn from acclaimed industry experts (usually UoS alumni) and meet new people in a relaxed sociable environment.

These events are often career-themed, with the attempt to help improve your knowledge and skills in areas such as innovation, entrepreneurialism and communications.

We send out emails via our alumni database (based on locality).

If you've recently moved to the Capital, ensure your alumni contact details are fully up-to-date.

Since the launch event hosted in 2014 by the University’s Chancellor, Sir Peter Middleton at Marsh & McLennan companies (Tower Place), we've held a variety of events including:

  • Speed networking at the law firm Olswang’s offices.
  • Industry panel events at Herbert Smith Freehills LLP.
  • 'Social bingo’ at Royal Bank of Scotland.
  • Quiz at Irwin Mitchell.
  • A bewery and sampling tour at Mondo with pizza and beers.

In 2018, guest speakers, Tom Brooks and Peter Dowds, received a superb reception as 45 guests listened to how they achieved entrepreneurial success with their companies MOPP (sold to US firm Handy in a multi-million pound deal) and Elder, their newest home-care venture.

Northern Alumni Network (UK)

Launched in 2017, the Northern Alumni Network aims to connect regional alumni with the Management School.

Since the launch, we have partnered with the Department of Economics and the School of Law, offering a richer networking opportunity.

As a developing Network, our Northern-based alumni can forge new connections in a relaxed environment. Delegates attend from around the region including Derby, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Burton-on-Trent, Chesterfield - and of course - Sheffield. These events often feature a guest speaker, knowledge workshop and a glass of wine!

We send out emails via our alumni database based on locality so, if you've recently moved to the region, do ensure your alumni contact details are fully up-to-date.
