Our Alumnae and Alumni

People from all over the world inspire the University of Bayreuth during their time on campus – and they do so beyond the campus as well. Where do our graduates go, what career opportunities do they seize – and in what field? Here we introduce you to some of our former students.

When I think of Bayreuth today, I associate it with very positive memories of a period of study which was an invaluable basis for deciding on my career.

Our Alumni Network

By the way, graduation need not mean the end of the connection with your alma mater and fellow students, on the contrary! The University of Bayreuth attaches great importance on nurturing contact and lively exchange, and is determined to intensify work with alumni even more. The foundation of our network are the subject-specific alumni associations and degree-related initiatives.

Indeed, there is a lot to be said for staying in touch with the University of Bayreuth and becoming a member of an alumni initiative. For example, meet former fellow students at one of our worldwide alumni meetings and homecoming events. Or let our alumni initiatives support you in your personal and professional (further) development – for example at conferences or on excursions.

You can also expand your professional network. Our alumni initiatives help you to build appropriate networks and to advance your career. You will find numerous opportunities and events on the website of our alumni network.

For companies

Our alumni network helps put you in touch with highly qualified specialists and managers with several years of professional experience, in addition to fresh graduates. Spending time on the friendly campus of the University of Bayreuth connects our alumnae and alumni with each other and with their alma mater. This makes the alumni network an ideal platform to get to meet junior and senior professionals or, as a junior or senior professional yourself, to share your passion for your company with our students. Contact us to discuss the opportunities available to you.

We would be happy to provide you with more detailed information about our alumni work:
