Our alumni news

Graduation ceremonies: all rise for the new alumni!

We’re delighted that you have completed your degree. You can be proud of yourself.

Now is the time to celebrate your achievement in the proper style. Let’s make your graduation ceremony a day to remember.

Graduation ceremonies take place in the main hall at Campus Krems (Wing G1), a venue with plenty of space to celebrate with your friends and relatives.

Celebrating together

The ceremony begins after you and the other graduating students make your formal entrance. The programme directors and other representatives of the university will then offer some inspirational thoughts for you to take away.

Following the academic pledge, each student is invited to the stage in turn to collect their degree certificate. 

At the end of the ceremony, you can toast your graduation with your friends and family – including on the terrace outside the hall, weather permitting. 

Need more details? Don’t worry, we’ll be in touch with everything you need to know about your graduation ceremony well in advance of the big day.

Your graduation ceremony will be broadcast via a live internet stream so that people who can’t make it in person don’t miss out – your friends and acquaintances can follow the event no matter where they are. The live stream will appear here shortly before the ceremony begins.

We’ve also developed special event formats for our alumni that are all about networking, mentoring and sharing expertise.

Opportunities to meet up all over the world: alumni social evenings

Alumni reunions 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 social evenings 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.

Heading back for Home Coming Weekend

Every year IMC Krems hosts a whole weekend of events where alumni can catch up with each other and with members of the university.

Former students return to their alma mater for a programme including the IMC Alumni Awards ceremony and a club night as part of the Campus Ball Krems. 

Socialising, networking and learning – each year we organise a diverse programme of events. 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 1,000 former students. And we’re delighted to welcome back every single one of them!

Nominations submitted by alumni

You should send a one-page letter of nomination based on the criteria for the category in question, together with your CV and a portrait photo, to IMC Krems by the end of January.

You can also nominate one of your fellow former students.

The deadline for applications is 31 January. We will inform you whether the application has been successful by the end of April.

Nomination by the university

A written nomination based on awards criteria is also required. This is submitted by a member of the Managing Team, a degree programme director or head of department.

Selection and awards ceremony

The IMC Krems Managing Team will make their selections by the end of April at the latest. We will then inform the nominees and invite them to the ceremony, which takes place during Home Coming Weekend.

A home-from-home community

Settling into life in a new city isn’t easy, but our IMC Alumni Chapters are on hand to make the process a bit smoother.

Alumni Ambassadors

We aim to forge strong ties between students and alumni in Austria and abroad in order to build a worldwide IMC community – a network of alumni who provide each other with mutual support. For several years now, IMC Alumni Ambassadors have been working hard to achieve this goal. They are graduates who work voluntarily and found IMC Alumni Chapters in the city where they currently live. Their work includes supporting students who are completing internships or exchange semesters in their area by acting as mentors, or organising events for their local alumni community.

  • Putting IMC Krems alumni and students based in their city in touch with each other
  • Organising at least one IMC alumni social evening 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
