Management reunion: "The Future of...."

Saturday, 16 September 2017

Join us for a celebration of Management at Hertford, when we will mark not only the 20th Anniversary of the first graduates of the BA in Economics and Management (E&M) and the Masters in Business Administration (MBA), but also celebrate those who've studied management here on other degrees too (DPhils, MScs and of course EEMs). And of course we'll also welcome alumni from other subjects too!

Our theme is The Future. We'll have sessions on the Future of Technology, the Future of Finance and the Future of Work, and we'll also be celebrating the many exciting achievements of the entrepreneurs in Hertford’s alumni community. Alumni and academics taking part in the day’s events include:

  • Stephen DeBerry – Founder & CIO of Bronze Investments, the social impact investment company
  • Sarah Hutton – HR Director for Western Europe at Coca-Cola
  • Simon Gage   Director of the Edinburgh International Science Festival
