During the last module of the Executive MBA Course at the University of Applied Sciences Giessen-Friedberg the students of the second course spend a week of lecture at the partner university Pfeiffer in Charlotte, North Carolina. All students enjoyed the time together and in the end, they were happy and sad at the same time: happy for the nice time they had during the two study years but sad because the MBA adventure was finishing. As a result they decided to establish an Alumni Association to stay in touch and to build up a networking community.
The “interim” board quickly prepared the first draft of the foundation charter that was signed by all the students of the course. This was the first milestone of our association.
