Staying in touch with KLU is even easier now. In July, the KLU Alumni Association launched its new alumni portal. “The new portal is there for everybody who wants to strengthen their KLU network. It’s not only for alumni,” explained Anne Rehmet, Head of Career Development & Alumni Relations at KLU. “Current students and participants in the KLU EMBA program and summer school can also register. And you will also find faculty and staff members in the portal.”
As Rehmet puts it, the alumni portal’s main goal is to build closer ties within the KLU family by networking, exchanging ideas, keeping up with old friends and finding new ones. “We have a great Seek&Find section on the portal,” Rehmet said. “You can search for names, cities, or companies to find out where KLU alumni are. Or you can profile your own fields of expertise and interests to help others find you.” This not only holds true for professional issues. “We want our alumni portal to be a vibrant place for exchange on many different levels,” Rehmet added. “So we also encourage people to contribute things like travel tips or search for a sports partner, let’s say.” Portal users will also receive news from KLU and invitations to exclusive alumni events.
Current students can use the alumni portal free of charge. Alumni are requested to pay an annual fee of €10. This helps the Alumni Association to finance its activities and to organize events like the annual Homecoming Event.
