USB Alumni – a powerful global network

Creating a mutually beneficial network
USB is extremely proud of its almost 20 000 alumni who have excelled in managerial and leadership roles all over the world – many of them at the highest level. Various platforms are used to create ongoing conversations between USB and its alumni, to provide access to continued learning and to offer ways in which alumni can contribute in the form of sponsorships and donations, or give back to society through USB’s social engagement initiatives. One of the main contact points between USB and its alumni is the USB Alumni Association with its branches all over South Africa, other African regions, the UK and Europe. Together, USB and its alumni contribute to the common good and create a legacy of inspiring initiatives.

Giving back
USB’s alumni reinvest in the School in various ways – among others by mentoring USB students and Small Business Academy participants, by funding bursaries and by supporting initiatives such as USB’s annual road shows.

Benefiting from access to life-long learning
Continued learning through master classes, workshops and academic programmes is one of the benefits of being an alumnus. These offerings allow alumni the opportunity to catch up with the latest in management and leadership and to renew their skills.

Gaining access to business knowledge
Access to business knowledge is provided by speaker events at USB, elsewhere in South Africa and elsewhere in Africa. Alumni are also invited to use USB ThoughtPrint – a searchable repository of all the business knowledge generated at USB.

Connecting on various platforms
Communication between alumni and USB happens on platforms like e-News, the USB website and social media, at events such as Leader’s Angle, and at various information-sharing and networking events.


Take part in regional activities

The USB Alumni Association has regions all over South Africa as well as in Namibia, Botswana, West Africa, East Africa, the UK and Europe.
