Discover Global Alumni

Discover Global Alumni (from US $10,000 yearly)

 

Discover Global Alumni creates a global alumni network in different cities or countries, and leverages them toward your strategic objectives, over a three year period. As a client, you provide us with the last known whereabouts of your international alumni and we do the rest. Discover Global Alumni is designed for any size institution and any budget.

How it works

Working with our global partners, we locate your alumni and organize alumni groups around the world. The size and range of these groups may vary depending on the number of graduates you have in the city, country or region, and will be defined when we start working with you.

We provide an expert project manager dedicated to your account. This project manager works with you throughout the alumni discovery process and the creation of your international alumni network. Your staff can monitor our progress at anytime using our secure AlumniOS™. After a three-year period, management of this alumni network is turned over to your institution, or you can choose to have us continue managing your global alumni.

Our goal is to promote a lifelong relationship between your institution and your international alumni. As well as setting up your network, we provide training and coaching on how to harness the power of your alumni into a platform that helps your institution achieve its global ambitions. A three-year subscription to the Global Alumni Relations eCourse (a US $1,485 value) is included in each Discover Global Alumni project.
