Alumni Business News

Summer 2014



Welcome to the first edition of Alumni Business News


I am delighted to introduce our first Alumni Business Newsletter, which you will receive three times a year. It is full of news about the Business School and the Business School Alumni Association; our global community comprised of staff, students and alumni.

As you know, your international EQUIS accredited Business School is in the top one percent of Business schools globally, already ranked in the top 10 within the UK for all taught subject areas – one of only three UK Schools to achieve this. We have ambitious plans to build on our world leading standing and to continue to deliver innovative education and research.

The School is at the forefront of programme innovation and your continued support has been crucial to this success. We’re always glad to hear from our alumni, so please do keep in touch. If you have not had the chance to re-visit Exeter recently, now is a very exciting time to get involved. 

In the meantime I hope you enjoy this newsletter which will keep you up to date with the latest developments and news.
