The Center in Beijing is a hub for University of Chicago alumni who live in Beijing, other areas of China, and wider East Asia, and is also open to alumni visitors from around the world. We host alumni-focused or exclusive events, such as receptions, workshops, and Summer Send-offs for admitted students, and also act as a local nerve center for alumni activities at other Beijing venues, such as international lecture series or visits from University luminaries. Please visit our upcoming events page to find out more about both alumni-focused and open-to-the-public events in Beijing.
If you are an alum and would like to get involved with the UChicago community in Beijing or in your city in Asia, please do not hesitate to explore the information below or contact us. Whether you hope to network with classmates, volunteer to interview undergraduate applicants, or attend lecture events featuring favorite professors visiting from Hyde Park, we hope that we can assist you. There are Beijing chapters of both the University of Chicago Alumni Club and the Booth School Alumni Club.
For alumni who have recently relocated or returned to Beijing, we suggest that you visit the Center early in your time here, to learn about the resources and programs that we offer. If you are interested in creating an alumni event at the Center, please contact us.
There are alumni clubs across Asia that welcome graduates from all divisions and schools of UChicago, in addition to a number of specific Booth School of Business alumni clubs. We hope to foster connections both within communities of alumni from specific divisions and across these community groups. Please head to the Connect with Alumni in East Asia page to find contact info for your local alumni club.
If you are employed at or leading a company or organization in Asia which is seeking interns, you can find out more about recruiting UChicago students via the Support our Work page or the Office of Career Advancement’s online recruiting system.
The University, the Alumni Association, and the Graham School of Continuing Education collaborate to offer a diverse range of alumni-exclusive international tours with an academic basis. Several past alumni tour groups have visited China; upcoming programs are listed on the Alumni and Friends Study Trips webpage.
