A New Beginning for Queen's MBA Alumni Association
Members of the newly elected MBA Alumni Association Committee. Included are (l to r) Kayhan Karayel, Tommy Elliott, Jonathan Crawford, Trish Davey and Simon Dixon
Four years after its initial launch, Alumni have decided to reinvigorate the Queen’s Executive MBA Alumni Association with the aim of building on relationships already established during the MBA programme and developing a robust network of professional relationships throughout all sectors of the business community within Northern Ireland and beyond.
Recently elected Chair of the Association, Tommy Elliott, was enthusiastic about the benefits that a newly rejuvenated Association could bring to members. “I am very proud of my association with Queen’s and of the friendships I made during my time here. I don’t want to lose the contacts I have made and being a member of the Alumni Association means I can not only stay in touch with classmates and academic staff, but also establish relationships, both social and professional, with other MBA graduates.
We are confident that Association activities will also offer a wealth of other networking opportunities through close links with organisations such as the Institute of Directors, Chartered Management Institute and the MBA Association in Ireland.”

Dr Frances Hill, Programme Director for the MBA, added, “Queen’s University Management School can also benefit greatly from the re-establishment of this group. We look forward to continuing and renewing mutually beneficial relationships with our MBA graduates of whom we have every reason to be proud.
We are most grateful to Tommy, the members of the committee and other MBA Alumni for their efforts and wish the new Committee every success in establishing and developing a thriving Queen’s MBA graduate association.”
