Part of what makes AAU unique is the international community that goes through it. When our students graduate, they leave AAU with more than just a degree: they take with them an invaluable professional and social network, and they have a community they can always come back to.
We have over 2,000 alumni, from over 80 countries, working for globally influential organizations, including Google, Bluewater Group, Radio Free Europe, IBM, Kantar Group, Médecins sans frontières, UN organizations, and Clifford Chance, as well as many alumni working in the public sector. Some of our alumni are leading local change-makers with organizations like Rohlik.cz, The Miners Coffee, Vteřina poté, Foundation La Vida Loca, Mint Market, Artisème and KODL Contemporary Art Gallery. Our alumni have also gone off to further graduate and PhD studies at prestigious institutions such as Oxford, Harvard, INSEAD, Singularity University, London School of Economics and Charles University.
Our Alumni Relations Office works to facilitate community connections and promote symbiotic relationships within our Alumni Community and with our institution. There are many opportunities for alumni to engage with their alma mater and keep up to date with the latest news.
AAU Global Alumni Community
AAU supports its students throughout their studies, and its alumni throughout their careers. Keep in touch, share your success stories, find your classmates through our alumni network, and enjoy the benefit of an international network of over 2,000 alumni.
Join us for professional events and social mixers, enhance your education through the AAU Academy, and keep up to date with the latest news by subscribing to The AAU Quarterly.
We support and provide ways for AAU Alumni to get involved in various university activities, advise current students through mentorships, and collaborate with us.
Applied Education Projects (AEP)
Connect your company to AAU and facilitate an experiential, real-life experience for students through assignments, research and consulting projects, while gaining clear outcomes, innovative solutions, and insights into potential talents. The company can set their own topic and timeframe for the assignments, and AAU will connect them to the most relevant group of students. For more information about how to get involved in an AEP, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some lessons cannot be taught in a classroom but only through professional and real-world experiences. The Mentorship Hub bridges that gap by connecting students and young graduates with experienced alumni and members of the AAU community who can share the challenges, successes, and crossroads they faced on their career paths and offer their advice and insight about their field of profession. Note that there is no fixed commitment for the mentor or the mentee.
Alumni whose companies or employers are willing to host AAU students for internships, on regular basis or occasionally, can fill out this form or forward it to the person responsible for talent acquisition and internships at your organization as well. Should you require more information regarding opportunities to work with the AAU student community, please contact AAU’s Career Development Specialist, Yulia Sheveleva, who can promote internship offers to students. Further contact details can be found here.
The cooperation with AAU regarding the possibility of offering internships increases the quality of our work, because up to now we have always got to know engaged and reliable students from AAU. We have realised that students from AAU are very willing and motivated to gain internship experiences. With this in mind, we can recommend everyone to offer an internship at AAU.Roman Oeschger, MA in International Relations & Diplomacy 2014, currently Founder, FOMOSO (Forum für Mittelost- und Südosteuropa), 2021
