Pittsburgh Alumni Network

The alumni network, founded in 2017, is an excellent opportunity to stay in touch with other former exchange students. After the first alumni event in 2017, we will establish an annual "Meet & Greet" as part of the Faculty Day of the Faculty of Business & Economics (always the first Friday in July). Below you find some impressions of the first alumni event in 2017 and the "Meet & Greet 2018". Being a part of the exchange program with the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business or the College of Business Administration therefore does not end with the semester abroad, but creates a sustainable network which is beneficial for both alumni and future exchange students.

 

The alumni network gives former and future exchange students the opportunity to contact each other.
