LISA wants YOU!

Message from Dr Steve Smithson


If, like me, you studied Information Systems at LSE through ADMIS, MISI or MISDI (or even a PhD for the really keen) and you are an energetic individual who wants to remain close to their alma mater, then you should actively help LISA.

LISA is our LSE IS Alumni organisation that exists to create a sense of community by providing mutual support and a global network for its members. Since the establishment of the Information Systems group, over 4,000 people have graduated and gone on to build illustrious careers at some of the world’s most renowned businesses and academic institutions. Many have started their own businesses with great success.

Whether you are looking for old friends, networking opportunities with like-minded people, talented individuals to hire or future business partners, or if you’re revisiting the LSE campus to reminisce on old days over a beer, LISA can help.

LISA is an entirely voluntary organisation and is looking for enthusiastic alumni from around the world to join us and contribute, both in person and remotely, through the following activities:

• Social event organisation
• Writers for blogging/newsletter
• LISA Ambassadors worldwide
• Career mentors (including reviewing CVs)
• Start-up advice
• Academic networking
• Social media campaigning
• And many, many, more

If you are interested, please get in touch!!!
Contact with a short description of yourself including the year you graduated, where you are, and how you’d like to contribute. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hope all is well


Research Data – Would you like to be interviewed?


A student at the LSE is looking for people with experience in ERP systems and large scale integration projects. He is appealing to the breadth and depth of the LSE Alumni in solving problems (!) and would like to interview a few people for his dissertation.

If this is something of interest to you then please drop Charles Wahab a quick email ( and he will follow up.

PS. If you think you are too busy, please remember that this is your opportunity to contribute to the research.

CV Advisors needed

BCS Central London Branch is looking to recruit volunteers to help contribute to the CV advice team. Do you have recent experience recruiting and/or mentoring staff? They are especially looking for academics and members that are involved in recruiting graduates/entry level positions. Members of the team can expect to typically review 2-3 CVs a month and will be expected to provide feedback in a constructive way. 

If you’re interested in volunteering, then please email the chair with a few lines of your relevant experience here

As this scheme is run by volunteers they may not be able to respond to all applications.
