Alumni Associations

Membership of the Professional Association and / or the Umbrella Association

BOKUalumni is the graduates' umbrella association that mainly performs tasks across various fields of study and is responsible for networking with the professional associations. The professional associations maintain contacts within their specialist divisions / fields of study. Admission to each association is arranged separately. When joining the professional and umbrella association (or when already a member of one), the member rate for the umbrella association is reduced.

The Umbrella Association is the central association for all BOKU graduates. Its core activities are:

- Open Positions Database, further education and training, and networking tailored for each field of study

- BOKU magazine and address administration in the BOKU database

- Networking of the professional associations
