KEDGE Alumni Network & international branches
KEDGE Alumni supports initiatives developed by some 200 volunteer graduates who organise more than 150 meetings each year in Europe, Asia, America, Africa and the Middle East. They are the backbone of the network's organisation: after-work meetings, professional clubs, conferences, etc.
KEDGE is convinced of the importance of this network and commits substantial resources, financial of course, but also human, to its management with no fewer than 7 employees. Volunteers, branch managers, professional club managers, mentors, coaches and other experts, in addition to the members of the Board of Directors (all of whom are volunteers and KEDGE BS graduates), also play an important role in organising this network.
The aim of the international branches, organised by volunteer graduates, is to bring KEDGE Alumni together, wherever they may be in the world, at social events that provide an ideal opportunity for graduates to develop their network and meet other graduates of their school. All meetings are publicised on the network by the KEDGE Alumni teams.
