Commitment since 1931

A culture of giving back For former students to give something back to their university, both financially and in terms of goodwill, is a firmly established tradition. Over and over again, it enables the development of great and good things: sharing experience, for example, or projects such as the HSG Alumni Learning Center. Your annual membership fee directly supports around 20 student initiatives every year, such as the Oikos Evolve Conference, the Ressort International or the Un-Dress Fashion Show. Passing on valuable experience More and more alumni are coming on board as mentors for the students – there are now more than 500 alumni involved. Students and alumni alike benefit from sharing experiences.
