Opportunities to meet up all over the world: alumni network meetings
Alumni network meetings are a platform for graduates to broaden and maintain their networks.
At these inspirational events, alumni are joined by representatives from IMC Krems and a wide range of industries. It often turns out to be much more than a chance to catch up. In recent years, social evenings have set the wheels in motion for numerous internship and job opportunities as well as exciting projects.
London, Moscow and Zurich: alumni network meetings take place in cities all over the world, with Vienna home to the largest IMC alumni community. Get an overview of when and where upcoming social evenings are taking place.
IMC Alumni Chapters all over the world
We already have 36 city chapters. And what’s more, the IMC Alumni Network is constantly growing. Get involved in the activities of your local IMC Alumni Chapter – our Alumni Ambassadors introduce themselves here.
Homebase away from home: Become an Alumni Ambassador!
Your city of choice could become the next IMC Alumni Hub
It's not easy to get started in a new city. With our IMC Alumni Chapters we want to make a new start a little easier for our graduates. Our Alumni Ambassadors actively support us in creating a "homebase away from home" in many cities worldwide.
What does the role of Alumni Ambassador involve?
- Putting IMC Krems alumni and students based in their city in touch with each other
- Organising at least one IMC alumni network meeting per year – with our support
- Liaising with the IMC Career Center on matters such as internships and job opportunities at their own companies or the companies of other alumni in their area
- Answering Xing und LinkedIn inquiries from IMC Krems students and alumni
IMC Alumni Academy
More than just a network: "Knowledge Sharing"
The IMC Alumni Academy was founded in spring 2020 as a further education initiative and offers a comprehensive range of workshops, some of which are subject to a fee.
The IMC Alumni Academy covers a wide range of different topics - for example, management training, digital skills, HR, marketing and much more. The further training courses offered as workshops are primarily conducted by alumni for alumni, but also for students and interested persons. Participants can also discuss their own problems and questions from their companies with the workshop leaders and other alumni. In short: Practical relevance at its best.
Do you also want to pass on your knowledge as a workshop leader? We are always looking for new workshop leaders and are looking forward to hearing from you.
Virtual autumn graduation 2020
Academic graduation ceremonies at IMC Krems are always the highlight of each academic year and something very special. In 2020 they had to be converted to a virtual format at short notice - due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, 1,000 students completed their studies at the Krems site and at the transnational programmes in Azerbaijan, China, Latvia, Ukraine and Vietnam. The new graduates at the Krems site come mainly from Lower Austria and all other Austrian federal provinces. The share of young graduates from EU and NON-EU countries of origin is 10%.

Heading back for Home Coming Weekend
Every year IMC alumni can catch up with each other and with members of the university.
Former students return to their alma mater for a club night as part of the Campus Ball Krems.
Socialising, networking and celebrating. Home Coming Weekend is a tradition that goes all the way back to 2000.
As the university has grown, so has the alumni community and Home Coming Weekend, which now attracts around 500 former students. And we’re delighted to welcome back every single one of them!
Alumni Awards nomination procedure
There are three ways to make nominations: alumni can nominate themselves or other alumni, or they can be nominated by the university (by members of the Managing Team, heads of department or degree programme directors).
