ANU College of Business and Economics

Welcome to the inaugural ANU College of Business and Economics Alumni update.

When I was confirmed as Dean in 2018 I made a point of meeting with alumni, those who had graduated decades ago and those recently graduated. There was a common theme throughout those conversations - we need to engage more!

Re-engaging with alumni is a core priority of the College of Business and Economics (CBE). We want to ensure our alumni have access to the latest business and economics research and support in their professional development. We would also like to provide you with the opportunity to connect with your fellow alumni through a series of face-to-face networking events.

In 2019 we launched our Careers Advisory Services which, in addition to being available to current students, is also extended to our recent graduates. We will be hosting alumni events in Singapore, Malaysia, China, Australia and beyond, where CBE alumni will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with industry experts on current business and economics challenges. We have also launched a new LinkedIn page where we will be posting articles on relevant research and business and economic insights.
