The Griffith Business School alumni network connects our graduates, the School and the business community.
After 40 years of developing future ready, responsible business leaders, our network has grown to over 45,000 engaged alumni. Our alumni are spread across the globe working in a diverse range of industries.
We are proud to celebrate the achievements of our remarkable graduates and provide opportunities for our alumni community to gather, share and benefit from an ongoing connection to the School. Each year we host a full calendar of networking and professional development events, keep alumni up to date on the latest School and University news as well as provide opportunities for graduates to give back and assist in the development of our next generation of business leaders.
Giving to Griffith
