LISA (LSE Information Systems Alumni) is the Information Systems and Innovation Faculty group's official alumni group. It is dedicated to establishing, maintaining and forging new relationships between alumni, industry and the Faculty group. It is open to any alumni of the Information Systems and Innovation programmes and is supported by staff within the Faculty group.
"I am very pleased to support LISA in working to link the department with our world-wide community of Alumni" Professor Leslie Willcocks (former Head of ISI faculty group).
If you would like to get in touch with the alumni group or provide some feedback and suggestions, please contact any of the individual LISA Committee members.
Additionally, if you are part of an active regional Information Systems alumni group, please let us know what you are up to and send us anything you would like to be included on this website.
All students who graduate from the range of programmes and degrees offered within Information Systems and Innovation will automatically become members of LISA, while students who graduated prior to 2008 are also strongly encouraged to join this group. Today LISA counts over 500 members.
