ULMS Around the World

20 years of ULMS

As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations for the University of Liverpool Management School, alumni hosted events across the globe.

To mark two decades of the University of Liverpool Management School, a series of special events have been taking place throughout the year. As well as a celebratory dinner in January, the School created the ‘ULMS Around the World’ event programme, which saw our international alumni host 14 events in different cities across the globe.

The volunteer-led events took place throughout May in Lisbon, Lagos (pictured below), Munich, Port Harcourt, Riyadh, Toronto, Hong Kong, Abuja, Suzhou, Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an and Guangzhou and proved to be hugely popular, with over 400 graduates attending in total.

Celebrations to remember

A graduate at the Munich event (pictured below) commented: “It was so nice to be part of the fantastic worldwide celebrations, we were thrilled that the school included us. It was great getting to know other University of Liverpool graduates and we’re looking forward to expanding our network, which would not have been possible without this event.”

Huyan Guo, (MBA 2015) who kindly hosted the event in Hong Kong, along with the Hong Kong Graduate Association (pictured below), reflected: “Ten years ago, while studying for my MBA, I attended the 10th Anniversary Celebration Dinner at Mansion House, London; it was a wonderful evening, filled with warmth and conviviality. I met so many great alumni and listened to their speeches, I was so excited.

“Time flies, ten years have passed, ULMS has continued to grow and is now a triple accredited, internationally recognised, research powerhouse. Many alumni hold important positions in business strategy management, energy trading, innovative technology management and financial analysis in various industries around the world. We are proud alumni and held our ULMS Around the World alumni evening in Hong Kong to express our congratulations. Thanks to all alumni friends who joined us; it was a wonderful and unforgettable evening!”

Across continents

Julia Balogun, Dean of the Management School added: “It’s wonderful to know that our alumni around the world are celebrating the School’s 20th anniversary in all corners of the globe. Thank you to all our volunteers for your time and effort in planning all these events and to our graduates for making the events such a huge success. We have thoroughly enjoyed hearing all your fond memories of the School and were delighted to see all the wonderful photos from each event.” ●
