Business Book Summaries Alumni Access - Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I sign up for a Business Book Summaries account through my alumni association?

Your alumni association will have an access code that you need to sign up for an account. If you know the code, please visit, fill out the form with your information, and type the code in the Promo Code field. Once you have submitted the form, you will receive a welcome email and an email containing your username and password, which you can use to sign into the site.

Q. What if I don’t know the alumni code?

If you don’t know what the code is for your alumni association, please contact your alumni office.

Q. What do I get with an alumni account?

With your alumni account you receive the same benefits as a full Business Book Summaries user. This means you have access to our entire backlog of book summaries and receive our weekly newsletter highlighting that week’s new summaries. Each summary is available in both PDF and HTML format, and most include an audio version as well. The HTML version can be translated into 30 languages.

Q. How can I check my expiration date?

Depending on the type of subscription your alumni association has, your expiration date is determined by either the date of your alumni association’s subscription, or the date you signed up for an account. To check your current expiration date, go to the My Account page. Your expiration date is listed on the first page.
