The Rutgers Business School in Newark announced plans to offer lifelong learning opportunities to its alumni on Thursday.

The first round of the series will consist of free lunch and learn webinars as well as discounted admission to a variety of executive education programs, the school said.

“As our alumni family seek opportunities to keep their skills current and learn throughout their lives, we want them to see Rutgers Business School as their educational partner,” Lei Lei, the dean of Rutgers Business School, said.

Rutgers Business School currently has a global alumni network of more than 43,000 graduates, it said.

“The need to stay relevant and learn throughout one’s life grows every day because of the pace of change,” Peter Methot, executive director of Rutgers Business School’s Executive Education, said.

“As a well-regarded business school, we want to offer relevant knowledge that helps our stakeholders be the best version of themselves,” he said.

The first webinar, which was held on Feb. 13, focused on the business implications of artificial intelligence. The event brought out several hundred people, the school said.

Future webinar topics include:

The sessions are free to current students, Rutgers Business School alumni as well as friends and family members of alumni, the school said. Also, as part of the initiate, alumni will be able to access all open enrollment programs offered by Rutgers Business School Executive Education at a 50 percent discount. There are limits to the program, it said.
