Business executives from across the globe who studied at Nottingham Business School have signed up to support the next generation of business brains as part of a new Alumni Fellowship Scheme.

The new scheme was officially launched with a special day-long event on 16 October 2014 for all the Fellows.

For the pilot year, 33 alumni have been accepted following an application process and will undertake a range of activities, including student mentoring, giving guest lectures, sitting on interview panels and offering company visits and shadowing opportunities.

The Fellows will also contribute to Nottingham Business School’s enhancement boards, which review all of our courses to ensure they are aligned with business requirements.

They will also get involved with Nottingham Trent University's Acceler8 employability award, through which students undertake work experience in addition to their degree.

Dean of Nottingham Business School, Professor Baback Yazdani, said: "Each Alumni Fellow will dedicate their time to different activities, depending on interests, expertise and availability. The main focus for our Alumni Fellowship Scheme is to create a valuable resource that our students and staff can benefit from, while offering the unique opportunity for alumni to raise their own profile and develop their skills and experience."

In return for their time, a minimum of two days per year, the Alumni Fellows will have access to the University's online and City library resources, priority invitations to Nottingham Business School events, discounts on programmes and access to networking events.
