Connecting for success | 25 January
On 25 January, FEB and the FEB Alumni Network hosted an interactive conference to develop a strategy and activity plans for careers and alumni at FEB. Because alumni relations and career services are of strategic importance for the quality and positioning of FEB, we gathered input for FEB's strategy document and activity portfolio. Additionally, we celebrated ten years of career and alumni services at FEB!
