Questions & Answers

Questions from Jessica Runte:

Activities for alumni abroad?

So far AlumniUM has no special activities for alumni abroad.

How to measure success?

For the next years among other things my work will be measured by the “absorption ratio” (number of members who graduated in one year / number of graduates in one year). However, this might be a special measure for associations

Activities during the transition from student to alumni?

So far we try to create as much awareness as possible during study times. Any other suggestions would be very important for us as well!
