One of the benefits of pursuing an MBA is the alumni network. Schools are proud of the individual accomplishments of their alumni but how could schools connect alumni so that they become a powerful force together?
The MBA alumni network of the future will facilitate connections between alumni on multiple levels. It will continue to enable alumni to search for each other and connect but will do so in a much more active way. If alumni are travelling or free between meetings they will be able to connect with alumni who are close by and free, connections which could ultimately turn into new opportunities. If an alumni is working on a new product or project they can tap into a sub set of alumni to help online or in person for impromptu brainstorming sessions or meetings. The alumni network becomes a support system for small or big projects on a day-to-day basis, providing a range of different viewpoints on topics you are working on and helping to move ideas forward.
