Networking with Fletcher Alumni
One of the highlights of a Fletcher education is the ability to engage with our diverse and active alumni network. Our alumni community is over 9,000 people strong, with representatives working in every sector and impacting some of the most important issues of our time, from climate change to economic development to security to, of course, international business.
As a GBA student, you likely live close to a hub of these Fletcher alumni, and we encourage you to take advantage of this proximity. Fletcher has more than 80 alumni clubs across the globe, and we invite you to connect with them in person or virtually. You can do so in several ways:
- LinkedIn Networking: Join the LinkedIn Fletcher Business Alumni Group to connect with Fletcher students and alumni from all degree programs who share an interest in business.
- Events: Keep tabs on the alumni events calendar to join a specific event close to you.
- Local Club Emails: Join the local Fletcher email list in your area to be apprised of activities. To do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, your affiliation (a GBA student), and the location of your local club (see complete list).
- Online Directory: The online directory allows you to directly connect with other Fletcher community members – alumni, faculty, and students alike. Whether you are trying to track down a specific alumni or trying to find people in a specific industry or location, the database can be a useful resource. This document explains the registration process and how to use the platform. You will have access to this directory about 1 month into the start of your first semester.
