Students Meet Alumni Event
On Friday December 7, 2012 our first Students Meet Alumni Event took place! Our aim for this event was to introduce our current Master students to our alumni in an informal setting, offering our current students the opportunity to learn more about jobs, employers, industries, and other career-related topics.

Next to this, it was also a great opportunity for an informal gathering of those who share a bond with our Master of Marketing programme.
Approximately 100 master students and 40 alumni of our MSc Marketing programme attended the event. The alumni were divided into eight groups (by industry). Based on their preferences, students visited different groups of alumni in three rounds, each lasting 20 minutes to informally exchange information about any questions they had for the alumni.
As a surprise for the students, a number of companies (including ABN AMRO/ People Dialogue, Accenture, ING, Groupon, Heineken, and VODW) also offered bonuses to students that stood out from the crowd.
While it was snowing outside, both students and alumni enjoyed the first edition of the Students Meet Alumni Event. Therefore, the AMSalumni committee wants to thank all participants one more time for making this first time a great success! We look forward to the next edition in December 2013!
