Networking is not collecting contacts. Networking is planting relations-Misha Collins
Oxford Business Alumni Networking Events
When it comes to networking & building professional connections, alumni are one of the most valuable resources. One of the most effective & enjoyable ways to stay in touch with fellow graduates is through alumni networks. Alumni associations are rife with opportunities for expanding a student’s or professional’s networks. Having an alma mater in common, being able to network via regular in-person events or online platforms makes it easier to form & maintain valuable connections.
Gone are the days when we found opportunities through job portals or the job markets. Today great opportunities knock on our doors in the most unassuming manner cause we are credible, authentic & keep genuine connects. Today with so much dearth around ‘realness’, individuals & organizations want to touch, feel & experience this factor in people they work with or stay in touch with. Networking platforms provide such great platforms. From virtual platforms like LinkedIn to face to face Meet Up Groups, relationships & networks teach us immensely.
The Oxford Business Alumni Network (OBA) is one such powerful Alumni network which acts as a gateway to one of the most diverse, talented & invigorating Learning communities in the world. It provides services, bonds & resources that strengthen Alumni ties to Oxford & with each other, from face-to-face gatherings to a suite of online services. The OBA network consists of all Oxford degree awarded alumni & Non-matriculated Oxford Saïd graduates.
