Essex forever

Our graduates live and work across the globe, shaping the world with the skills and knowledge they gained here. We'd love to hear what you're doing now and so would our prospective students to help find out what an Essex degree might do for them. If you’re a previous EBS student, join our Alumni network.

If you studied at our former Department of Accounting & Financial Management, Department of Accounting, Finance and Management or School of Entrepreneurship and Business, then you are automatically an alumnus of Essex Business School. The School was created in August 2008 following the merger of the Department of Accounting, Finance and Management with the School of Entrepreneurship and Business. We are planning lots of great things for our alumni, so look out for news on the our Essex Business School Facebook page.


We hold events in the UK and around the world, including speed networking, our popular Sports Weekend and an annual reception at the House of Lords.


Sign up for your free Alumni Card, which gives you access to events and benefits on and off our campuses – including the Careers Advisory Service, Students’ Union and library.
