IMC Alumni Ambassadors

Alumni of IMC Krems connected worldwide

Since the academic year of 2014/15 there is a new initiative which aims at linking the „EXPATS“ among the IMC alumni more closely and providing a kind of mentor for the new alumni and students (of Practical Training or Applied Training and Research Semester). Thus, small „IMC Krems Hubs“ should come into being on a global scale. The job of an IMC Alumni Ambassador is defined as a voluntary post.
