Global alumni celebrations for London Business School

The London Business School community will be staging 90 events across 54 countries to commemorate its Worldwide Alumni Celebration.

The global event on 23 September gives alumni an opportunity to celebrate their lifelong connections to the School and support its strong alumni networks.

Since the Worldwide Alumni Celebration was introduced five years ago it has grown gradually, with 2010's offering set to be more diverse and wide-spread than ever before.

In the UK, the London Alumni Club is hosting a panel to discuss the future of the world economy at the Lincoln's Inn courts.

Leading faculty members Professors Andrew Scott and Linda Yueh are joined by Willem Buiter (Chief Economist, Citigroup) and Sadeq Sayeed (Special Advisor, Nomura) to examine what will happen to the global economy in the coming years.

In Milan, alumni will meet at the Pinacoteca di Brera, where a tour of one of the foremost art collections in the world will be followed by alumni guests enjoying celebratory cocktails in the centre of old Milan.

Other notable events are set to take place in places such as: Moscow, Cairo, Dubai, Hamburg, Shanghai, Sydney, Zurich, New York and Toronto.
