Student Networks and Alumni

Staying connected with peers and being in the know about job market changes is essential in our times. In order to fulfill that requirement we refer to multiple communication tools for our students and alumni to stay updated and keep in touch with their peers. We highlight those tools in the following:

  • Erasmus Mundus Students and Alumni Association (EMA): It is an international professional and personal network for Erasmus Mundus students and graduates. Members can join its professional networks and service teams to network and become active within the Association. Jobs board and special enterpreneurship section are offered to members.

  • El-Bulbo: A web-platform that is used to connect EMECS students with each other and with the administrations of all EMECS universities. This permits students to monitor their study progress, as reported by the different partner universities of their mobility path. EMECS students are encouraged to setup accounts in El-Bulbo to take full advantage of the programme.

  • EMECS Alumni: This is the Linkedin group of our alumni and students used for sharing jobs, internships, and professional updates.

“EMECS experience was definitely a life changer for me. Aside from the world-class education, you get exposure to different cultures and gain international and intercultural competences. Before joining EMECS I thought it would be a good way to experience the countries I am going to live in. Shortly after joining, I realized that through my big, diverse EMECS family I got to explore all of their cultures and also build life time friends!”
