Give Back to QBS
Giving back to Queen's Business School as a business or an industry professional is a direct way to access our best students and play a role in nurturing the talent of the future. In addition, corporate philanthropy can help to fund world-class research, support a historic campus, and enrich the student experience.
We welcome business experts to deliver guest lectures or masterclasses to our student body. This opportunity is great for personal development, improving public speaking, accessing our students before graduation, and highlighting your company and industry to students as a potential career.
Additionally, it brings life to our course curriculum and motivates students to hear and learn from successful industry professionals and their real-life, practical experiences.
