LinkedIn group

There are several resources available to help you connect with alumni online via LinkedIn.  

Exclusive for Network members, the LinkedIn group offers alumni and the School a platform to share and exchange news, opportunities, and events with each other.

Membership of the group also opens communication opportunities as members can direct message each other, without the need to be a first-degree connection, or have a premium account.

If you are an alumnus and would like to join the closed member group, please contact us.

We recommend using the LinkedIn group in conjunction with another tool – Find Alumni.

This tool pulls together all members of LinkedIn that have Saïd Business School listed in their education, which includes students and alumni of our degree, diploma, and Executive Education programmes, into a searchable directory. You can use this tool to filter down your searches by specific parameters including geographical location, company, industry, field of work, and more.
