ALUMNI NETWORK MEETINGS

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.

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.

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.

Alumni - Kick-off Mentoring Programm 2019

IMC Mentoring Programme

With help and advice at the side of our students

 Through the IMC Mentoring Programme, IMC Alumni support our bachelor degree students from the Department of Business and from the Department of Life Sciences, who are in the final year of their bachelor degree, in planning their next career steps. The alumni act as mentors. They come from a variety of functions and industries and have between 5 and 20 years of professional experience.

Mentors share their own professional experiences with their mentees, i.e. the students, and provide constructive feedback and advice. They do not present their mentees with ready-made solutions – the aim is rather to support the students in finding their professional direction and orientation. Alumni discuss their strengths, talents and interests with the mentees and ask questions such as: What interests you? Where do you want to go? Where will you apply?

Mentors meet their mentees in person at a kick-off meeting and are expected to exchange ideas at at least four other personal (or virtual) meetings during the winter semester.

Have we sparked your interest? If you would like to share your experience as a mentor, please get in touch with us.

Additional ways to get involved

There are many ways in which we can work together.

Provide a testimonial

We’re very proud of our alumni, and regularly feature them in testimonials in the form of interviews, quotes and videos on our various communication channels.

Alumni as brand ambassadors

At several events (e.g. Open House), alumni give prospective students advice. You’ll answers their questions about degree programmes, internships and career prospects, and tell them about your time at IMC Krems and what you’ve gone on to do. Alumni take part on a voluntary basis. We are always happy to show our appreciation by featuring you in the related coverage on our communications channels if you wish.

Part-time lecturing or guest lecture

We have especially strong ties with our alumni. This is reflected in the large number of alumni working as lecturers and guest lecturers at the university – the figure currently stands at 30, most of them on business and health degree programmes.

Become a member of staff

Teaching, research or administration – IMC Krems is an attractive employer that offers a wide range of opportunities for graduates. Find out more about current vacancies or submit an unsolicited application.

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.

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%.
