Our alumni volunteers make a significant contribution to Cranfield life. From sharing industry insights to give our students cutting-edge information to helping the University recruit the best and brightest of students.
We cannot thank our alumni enough for the time they give to Cranfield. Here are a few of our staff and students reflecting on the impact of alumni volunteers:
Professor Karen Holford CBE FREng, Chief-Executive and Vice-Chancellor, Cranfield University
“Since joining Cranfield I’ve been amazed by how invested our alumni are in contributing to the ongoing success of Cranfield. By mentoring our current students, providing projects and internships, supporting the Cranfield community, working with us to recruit talented Cranfield students, or being an advocate for Cranfield, our alumni are playing a vital role in making Cranfield the truly unique institution that we are so very proud of today. On behalf of everyone at Cranfield, thank you.”
Alex White, current MBA student, Australian Alumni Scholarship Recipient
"I was first introduced to Cranfield by alumni who are fortunately great friends of mine. They described how rewarding the year at Cranfield was with its engaging theoretical and practical elements of coursework. However, everyone noted that the greatest changes they all experienced was their personal development. The journey of transformation you take creates a strong sense of a pre-Cranfield and post-Cranfield MBA life. The quality of people and strength of community of the alumni network reflected the advice provided to me and cemented my decision to become a Cranfield MBA student."
Andrew Jones, Chief Operating Officer SATM & SWEE and Director of International Partnerships and Student Recruitment
“At Cranfield we look to recruit the top students from around the world, and alumni are vital in helping us to achieve this. Wherever possible alumni join us at student recruitment fairs across the globe because prospective students really value the experience of meeting alumni, they often cite meeting alumni as one of the most important factors in choosing Cranfield. Nothing makes more of an impact than speaking to somebody who has been here as a student themselves.”
