As Alumni of BEST, we retired from being active in BEST. We usually started to work in companies, work on our PhD or create our own companies. But often enough, there is something missing: the BEST spirit. Do you want to meet other Alumni to have fun, grow your knowledge and exchange professionally? Then BEST Alumni Network (BAN) is the place for you.
From the first thoughts of creating a European Alumni network back in 2002, we came down to having regular Alumni Meetings and events like the Alumni Business Camp. As we organised more events, and the network grew and more ideas came into being, it was finally time to evolve our network even more. BEST Alumni Network was the next natural step, following the success of AlumniNET and its Alumni Coordinators.
We had great times in our LBG, on the Courses we attended, and on the international events. Now it's time to get the Alumni together to support each other and do even more useful stuff.
Our Mission is to promote and facilitate networking and collaboration among the Alumni of BEST.
In order to do this, we follow several aims:
To support and strengthen the network of Alumni of BEST,
To strengthen the social ties among Alumni of BEST,
To promote business and career opportunities for Alumni of BEST,
To foster professional and personal development of Alumni of BEST, and
To offer constructive support to BEST and to reciprocally exchange best practices.
Through that, we also aim to become a strong partner of BEST, in order to support active members of BEST as well as guide them their way into the exciting world of Alumni.
