Successful first edition of the online UM Alumni Week
Inspiring conversations, interactive lectures, worldwide networking opportunities... The Alumni Office of Maastricht University is looking back on a great online UM Alumni Week!
The digital event took place for the first time, from 5 to 11 September 2020. Participants could attend over 40 sessions and enjoy stories, lectures, workshops, meetings, live music, sport sessions, and more. During the whole week, 680 alumni (spread over all sessions) joined the online event. We were able to reach a completely new group of alumni participants from all over the world, from Brussels to Beirut and from Moscow to Munich.
While attending the sessions or on social media, many alumni let us know that they felt connected – and human connection may be more important than ever during the current corona virus pandemic.
The next event for UM alumni will be the Coachcafé on 13 October 2020. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to alumni[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl.
