We consider our alumni as a major asset and invest in maintaining an active alumni network by involving our alumni in GISMA events and activities.
We believe in lifelong learning. That is why we offer our alumni short-term training courses to refresh and deepen their professional knowledge. We continuously enhance interactions among former and current students for the purpose of career exploration.
We regularly invite our alumni to host talks at GISMA so they can share their professional and personal experience with our current students. Alumni talks contain crucial information on job markets and insider hints relating to recruitment possibilities. What is more, they are a perfect opportunity to extend professional networks for both our current and former students.
We encourage our alumni to stay involved and we offer many opportunities to return to GISMA. During alumni reunions fellow classmates reconnect. Alumni reunions not only offer a chance to exchange life experiences but also to develop new ideas and to celebrate with old friends.
