When the BEL Alumni Ambassador Council program was launched in 2013, the vision was to create a strong, globally connected network of more than 80,000 alumni from UQ’s Faculty of Business, Economics and Law living and working around the world.

Eight years on, nine councils have been established in major cities from London to Shanghai, providing an on-the-ground presence for the University and its alumni to support each other and UQ through advocacy, career opportunities, partnership, volunteerism and fundraising. 

The Alumni Ambassadors are the driving force behind alumni engagement events such as The Global Connection, a casual meet up organised by alumni, for alumni. First launched in just two cities in 2014, The Global Connection has now spread across the globe. The movement is led by dedicated local alumni volunteers, who have taken the initiative to create this engagement opportunity for UQ alumni in their cities.

Thanks to the BEL Alumni Ambassador Councils and the Global Connections Volunteer Coordinators for making the UQ network more accessible than ever before.
