Events: From a debate on social media management to an alumni reunion in London
A reunion is what you make of it and CBS Alumni has taken part in quite a few in the past year. Some have had an academic perspective, others were purely social. Nevertheless, it is always a pleasure to be in the midst of an alumni meet up, whether it takes place as an informal rendezvous at Café Nexus, a debate event with researchers and practitioners, or a network meeting in London.

Celebrating 40 years as well as new alumni associations seeing the light of day
During 2015, CBS Alumni had the pleasure of collaborating with the youngest as well as the oldest graduate association. ASC Alumni launched their network at Café Nexus in June while CIBA celebrated their 40th anniversary in September.

Mentor network for business philosophers
For the second straight year, alumni and students met up to take part in a mentor network for business philosophers (i.e. the Business Administration and Philosophy programme FLØK). An increasing number of students had taken the opportunity to meet with a mentor to reflect on the transition from studying to working or just to get some advice on how to communicate their qualifications and competences to an employer. The FLØK programme management took the opportunity to discuss the FLØK programme development with the mentors. This small, but successful initiative illustrates the benefits of closer ties between students, alumni and CBS.

In your own words
”In your own words” is a recurring feature of the CBS Alumni newsletter where alumni share their stories about how CBS has influenced their career. The newsletter was launched in May and has been well received. Thank you for reading along and thank you to alumni, researchers, and colleagues at CBS, who contributed to telling the story of CBS in 2015.
