Welcome back

A warm welcome back to Sheffield University Management School (SUMS). All former students, whether you graduated decades ago or last year, are SUMS alumni, for life! A vibrant group of like-minded professionals, your alumni peers join you from all over the globe making up a 12,000 strong community and counting.

Alumni are an inspiration to our current and future students and there are many ways in which you can volunteer your time and knowledge to make a big difference to student lives. Opportunities include mentoring, guest speaking and volunteer roles, and sharing your stories and career journeys since graduating from Sheffield. We hope to bring alumni together through our in-person and online networks, keeping in touch with you throughout your alumni journey.

Alumni reunions and networks

We love meeting as many of you as possible at events and reunions across the globe. Whether online or in-person, we bring alumni together, creating friendships and networks around the world.

Supporting our students

Host a student project

As an alumnus working in a company or an organisation you can host a student project. Students can work with you on a particular issue or challenge as a project over the summer period.

Provide a student placement

Alumni often help provide opportunities for student placements. A placement is when a student takes employment in a job role during their study time, either over a year or over the summer.

Engage on campus

Students can learn so much from alumni. From listening to your stories, asking questions, and seeking advice, they receive first-hand insight about what the next steps of their journey could look like.

Benefits and development

Careers and business support

As a Management School graduate, you have access to careers support from the School and University for three years after graduation. There is also on-going support for your business and start-up needs.

Professional development

As your careers progresses, we know how important it is to stay ahead of your game. Further study on one of our masters level or Executive Education programmes could help you become a step ahead.

Further support

As well as the benefits and support available to you from the Management School, you also have access to the wider services available to you as an alumnus of the University of Sheffield.
