At the Management School we include alumni and employer-led sessions in our student employability programme, as well as career talks and specialist guest lecturers from alumni and practitioners. We welcome alumni to be involved in activities including:
Alumni and business practitioners sometimes lead a session to students that is part of a module on a programme; this can be on one of our undergraduate programmes, our specialist Masters courses, or on the MBA programme. These sessions tend to be in a specialist subject area lasting around 30-40 minutes plus 15-20 minutes at the end for questions.
Students are interested to hear from alumni who work in specialist roles, and are keen to learn how to start marking out their own careers in a particular area. As alumnus this an opportunity to inspire current students and to share with them your own journey, and provide them with practical knowledge about careers in specialist fields.
If you are interested in supporting our students at the Management School, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please get in touch to discuss your idea at:
As well as being involved with the Management School and supporting management students, sharing your time and experiences can also be invaluable to other students across the university. Find out more about Sheffield Alumni Volunteers at:
