Making Dyson a Better Place

From farm owners and founders to Fortune 500 CEOs, our alumni span professions, industries, and continents. Dyson’s diverse, global network is united by a vision of using business to build a better world—and it’s perhaps this shared ethos that keeps so many connected to campus.

Dyson alumni are heavily involved with the Cornell community—and each other—long after graduation. They serve on advisory boards, mentor students, offer internships, hire graduates, and even return to campus themselves for networking and learning opportunities. They share ideas and connections with each other. Sometimes they even go into business together. Very often they become lifelong friends and trusted advisors.
