With a mission to enhance diversity and inclusion in global business education and leadership, The Consortium relies on its vast network to achieve its vision for the future. The organization is only as strong as its network, and students, alumni, member schools and corporate partners all play a critical role.
Having experienced The Consortium’s mission firsthand, realized the value of an MBA and gained professional knowledge and insight, alumni in particular have a unique role to play in growing and sustaining this network and advancing the organization’s mission. There are many ways for alumni to get involved. Below, we’ve outlined seven of these for individuals hoping to stay connected, give back or both.
Become a Consortium alumni regional representative. Regional alumni chapters are being established across the country to help connect alumni and build strong Consortium communities. If you are interested in volunteering to be a regional representative, please contact Adrienne Thomas, manager of student and alumni relations, at email@example.com or 636-681-5448 for information on how to get involved.
Join a Consortium special interest group (SIG) — and the official alumni group. The SIGs, which are all on LinkedIn, were created to connect alumni by industry and function and include fields such as healthcare, energy, entrepreneurship, social impact and more. Keep up on current industry news and trends as well as new employment opportunities. Click here to learn more about our SIGs or to join. For those looking to simply stay connected, consider joining the official alumni group here.
Share your Consortium experience. Alumni can share their experiences applying to The Consortium, picking their school and choosing the right industry as well as the impact their choices have had on their career. For new Consortium students, this insight can be especially valuable. Contact Adrienne Thomas, manager of student and alumni relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 636-681-5448 if you are interested in sharing your perspective and insight. (If you have a unique and inspiring story to tell about your path to and following b-school and want to be featured on our blog, email email@example.com.)
