Would you like to support Cranfield in recruiting the top talent across leadership and management? Could your insights encourage students to undertake their postgraduate studies at Cranfield?

Cranfield’s Alumni Advocate programme aims to encourage prospective students to join Cranfield by introducing them to alumni who can share their experience of studying at the University and answer questions about what makes Cranfield so unique. 

We are currently looking for alumni to participate in the pilot scheme of the Alumni Advocate programme for 2021-22 in seven countries, with the hope the programme will grow in future years to include alumni across the world.
