Our alumni news
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.
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 29 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 Entrepreneurs Club
Only through the network of the community can one catch the success
The LinkedIn group "IMC Entrepreneurs Club" was launched in mid-July 2020 and already has over 60 members. The goal of this group is to connect start-ups, founders, CEOs as well as young or experienced entrepreneurs to exchange experiences and benefit from the IMC community.
IMC students who have started their own business are as welcome as graduates who are freelancers or have taken over a family business. IMC programme directors, lecturers, researchers and management staff are also welcome to join the group.
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
We show our appreciation for the work of our Alumni Ambassadors by...
- featuring them in the newsletter and on the alumni website
- introducing them at IMC Home Coming Weekend
- giving them special consideration for an IMC Alumni Award
- and offering numerous other extras along the way
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.
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.
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.
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.
A student no more, but an alumnus forever.
We always welcome graduates back to the university with a great sense of pride. And we can’t wait to hear your news!
Tell us what you’ve been up to. We want to integrate your know-how into the degree programmes of the future. Your feedback is extremely valuable – for us and for everyone who is studying at IMC Krems.
We’ve also developed special event formats for our alumni that are all about networking, mentoring and sharing expertise.
Meet up with your former classmates – and build up a global network of contacts as an active member of our community. Presented in four categories, the annual Alumni Awards pay tribute to the outstanding achievements and service of IMC Krems alumni.
Heading back for Home Coming
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 is a tradition that goes all the way back to 2000.
As the university has grown, so has the alumni community and Home Coming, 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).
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 the "Verleihung der Funktions- und Ehrentitel" festive event in fall.
