Definition of an alumnus

Alumnus/alumna is a person

  • who has attended and graduated from a particular university
  • who is a current or former member, employee, or contributor of a university. 

How to become a part of the alumni community?

Once you graduate from the Aalto University School of Business, you'll become an alumni. If you want to take part in the alumni activities and learn also in which different ways to support your alma mater, you can sign up as a member in Aalto University's alumni network. The alumni activity is voluntary.

Alumni Relations Office aims at establishing a constructive spirit among the university community, its alumni and the surrounding society and wants to foster active cooperation between the University community and its alumni.

The alumni network is an active and established part of the community and plays a central role in the student/enterprise cooperation of the University, as well as the development of education and research activities, thus producing added value for the University and the alumni.

The alumni activities aim at a lifetime partnership between the University and the alumni. Acting as alumnus gives you the possibility to influence the development of Aalto University School of Business alumni activities, and a natural channel towards student contacts.

School of Business Alumni activity

In the School of Business, we have established two forms of alumni cooperation, which both involve our most active alumni to support their alma mater, the School of Business, in the areas of teaching, research, and societal impact.

First of these groups, Alumni Advisory Board, discusses policies related to the School's alumni activities, external relations, and fundraising.

The second, Alumni Ambassadors, consists of 40 active alumni, who serve as a bridge between students, School, and business life. The role of Alumni Ambassadors is to act as a messenger for other alumni and introduce the School’s activities. The Ambassadors also communicate to the younger generation of students about the toolkit the School provides for working life purposes.

Get to know the members of Alumni Advisory Board, and get a closer look at our Alumni Ambassadors!
