Get Involved

There are many ways alumni can get involved at the Sobey School of Business. Whatever the resources you have to share, whether time, experience, expertise, energy, connections, passion or financial support, we can offer an opportunity.

Mentor: If you would like to coach, guide and share your experience with a student, consider a mentoring relationship. For more information, contact Shawn Swallow at 902-491-6238 or email: shawn.swallow@smu.ca, or the manager of the program you’d like to mentor in.

Speak: Share your wisdom with a class or group of students. To be added to our list of potential speakers, please email ssb.communications@smu.ca with a short bio and the topics you are comfortable speaking on.

Judge: “Judge not, lest ye be judged,” except during case competitions! We have regular need for judges to assist in giving students feedback during the Bob Shaw Case Competition and the Sobey School RMA Credit Risk Case Competition. From time to time, other competitions arise as well. If you are able to judge, or would like to be asked when there is an opening, contact Shawn Swallow at 902-491-6238 or email: shawn.swallow@smu.ca.

Attend Events: Sobey School student societies organize dinners, forums, golf events and more throughout the year, and the Sobey School hosts alumni events regularly. These events are better for everyone when they are well-attended by alumni. Watch your alumni newsletter for information about events and opportunities to attend.

Donate: Your financial support may be directed toward a program, capital project, or toward student success in the form of bursaries or scholarships. For more information, please contact the Saint Mary’s University Development Office:
