On 1 August 2010, the Departments of Accounting and Finance, Economics and Management formally merged into a new academic unit – the Adam Smith Business School. We hope that you will still continue to cherish your relationships with us as we endeavour to maintain our links with you and build a new ‘Adam Smith Business School’ alumni identity of which you can be proud.
The Adam Smith Business School has a truly international and exciting network, having over 8000 alumni in 114 countries. We are proud of our alumni’s achievement and keen to continue supporting you. The School has appointed a dedicated Alumni Officer to support our various alumni engagement activities, from reunions and campus visits to an online forum for continuing professional development. With your engagement, we believe we will go from strength to strength!
Glasgow Talks, supported by Clydesdale Bank and the University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School, is Glasgow Chamber's monthly series of business seminars featuring influential guest speakers drawn from the business and political elite.
The strategic influencers programme puts top business decision makers, leading politicians and key commentators in front of a business audience to outline key issues affecting their business or organisations. The Glasgow Talks has been so successful that over the last year the series has featured influencial leaders such as Jim McColl OBE, Rupert Soames OBE, Willie Haughey OBE, Neil Doncaster, Kenny MacLeod, Nick Parsons and Alf Young, Ian Curle, Michael Levie, Brian McBride, Kate Armstrong and John Swinney MSP
As a sponsor of the events, the Adam Smith Business School receives a small number of free tickets, which are given to our MBA alumni.
The latest talk was given by Robert Peston, BBC News business editor.
