Alumni Ambassadors

Alumni Ambassadors (formerly known as Alumni Country Champions and Regional Ambassadors) support the Saïd Business School’s admissions process in two ways:

  • Supporting the School and University through events such as hosting informal alumni gatherings, as well as facilitating receptions/gatherings for travelling staff (e.g. Vice Chancellor and Dean), faculty or key administrators to meet with the local alumni population; and
  • By responding to initial enquiries from applicants and mentoring, where appropriate, prospective students.

Alumni Ambassadors may also be invited to help at recruitment fairs, information sessions and any other marketing-related activities within a region.  If you are interested in being involved, please fill out this form and submit to chapters@sbs.ox.ac.uk.

Connecting with Prospective Students

Ambassdors should expect to primarily address questions about the course programme, their personal experiences whilst at the Business School and how they have managed their respective careers post degree conferral. If an Ambassador believes he has received an inappropriate query, please inform the Alumni Relations Office.

Ambassadors responding to prospective student enquiries are likely to be recent graduates (within the last three years), owing to the constantly evolving nature of the courses and the School. The support of less recent graduates is still appreciated but many prospective applicants wish to discuss their options with a recent graduate.

The Ambassadors scheme is overseen and managed by the Saïd Business School Alumni Relations Office, with support by the Admissions and Marketing Offices.

To volunteer your services as an Alumni Ambassador, please contact the Alumni Relations Office at alumni@sbs.ox.ac.uk.

If you are a prospective or incoming student looking to connect with an Ambassador, please connect with the relevant Admissions and Marketing representatives for your course here.
