This August, the Alumni Relations team in CAR are launching The Boardroom, a programme of exclusive online masterclasses delivered by leading Sheffield alumni from around the world.

The masterclasses will give a bespoke group of 25 graduating students the opportunity to hear from serial entrepreneurs, finance experts, marketing gurus, big data specialists, and global innovators, from top firms including EY, Microsoft, Mastercard and KPMG.

Lizzie Ruse, Alumni Volunteering Manager in CAR, said: “This is a great opportunity to engage our senior alumni whilst supporting graduate employability.”

Charlotte Cremers, International Alumni Relations Manager, said: “We’ve got some fantastic alumni signed up, and they are really keen to offer something special to this year's graduating students who are facing such challenging times.”

The graduating students will gain a fantastic insight into a range of leadership topics, and help develop their leadership skills to set them up for success in their future careers. Working together through the programme, the participants will be encouraged to form a supportive network with each other, as well as with the senior alumni.

The sessions will be recorded to share with all applicants who are not selected and to benefit more students in the future.

Please help promote this opportunity for final years via your networks

The programme is open to all bachelor, masters and PhD students graduating this summer. Students who are interested can find out more and apply here.

Applications opened on Monday 22 June and will close on Friday 10 July 2020 23:59 GMT+1.
