The International Graduate Center’s global alumni network is now spread out across five continents and comprises almost 1000 alumni from more than 70 nations. This network makes a substantial contribution to the successful future of every single graduate.
Contact between students does not break down even after they have completed their studies. Exchanges with the purpose of lifelong learning take place within the alumni network after the students have completed their studies. Talking with other former students can lead to solutions to upcoming tasks or to contacts for future employees. Current students can be employed to manage tasks within the scope of their term papers or theses. The exchanges within the alumni network allow people to expand their own horizons and to make comparisons with procedures in different businesses.
Former as well as current students can profit from the alumni network
The University of Applied Sciences and the International Graduate Center use newsletters and regular invitations to events to promote this exchange – this enables the alumni to renew old contacts and make new ones with graduates from other year groups. If nothing else, feedback from alumni is important for the design of individual courses of study. Current trends and challenges in professional and management positions can thus be chosen and discussed. The alum-ni network is therefore an important instrument in the design of IGC courses of study, making them as practice-orientated and as close to the trends of the time as possible. And the network is still growing. The IGC counted almost 1000 alumni in summer 2012 – every individual alumni has valuable knowledge at their disposal.
