Your links to university don’t end with your graduation. Tap into the ongoing networking and support services available through ECU’s global alumni community.
ECU’s global alumni community is a great way to keep in contact with all those people you met through your university years, as well as developing new contacts.
ECU graduates are invited to a variety of social events and activities every year, giving you the chance to connect with just some of ECU’s 140,000 alumni members.
Matthew Allen graduated with a Bachelor of Business in 1996 and is now the CEO of the oil and gas company, Otto Energy.
“I joined ECU’s Alumni Association as for me the network of contacts that you build, and the lifelong friends you make at university, made the experience. My best mate is a friend I met at ECU; these people make the difference,” he said.
The regular alumni networking events have helped graduates to progress in their chosen career.
ECU alumni are often called on to talk to current students about their careers and to give an insight into their particular industry. Tony Dolan, who graduated in 2002 with a Masters in Clinical Nursing, is now Director of Nursing Services at Sir Charles Gairdner and Osborne Park Hospitals.
“As a past student I wanted to reach out to shape the nurses of the future. I helped to establish a joint appointment with Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and Edith Cowan University for an Adjunct Associate Professor of Nursing,” he said.
“I also sit on committees within ECU’s School of Nursing. It’s my way of giving back.”
As an ECU alumnus, you’ll be entitled to a range of rewards and services at heavily reduced rates.
This includes discounted membership of both the Australian Marketing Association and the Australian Institute of Management WA, reduced rates for vehicles from Thrifty Car Hire, and discount on membership at ECU Sport and Fitness.
