Our Alumni Network

A network of over 70,000 leaders and rising

Our unique network

Everyone who finishes a Common Purpose programme, anywhere in the world, is welcome to join the Common Purpose 360 network – a 70,000 strong, growing, global community of our alumni with exceptional diversity and a huge range of skills, interests and leadership experiences.

Some will be very senior, experienced leaders across the public, private and NGO sectors, others will be emerging leaders and some will be just finishing university. This breadth and depth makes the network unique.

“Leadership today is about understanding people, events and circumstances – the more you understand them, the greater your ability to impact upon them, and Common Purpose gives you this understanding.”
