IMD Issue 08: 2016
REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

Numbers can paint an impressive picture. IMD has an alumni network over 100,000 executives, spread across 140 countries.

But the most impressive number at the moment is 352. That’s how many of you travelled near and far to reunite in Lausanne for our 2016 IMD Biennial International Alumni Event.

It was great reconnecting with all who came! And for those who couldn’t make it we look forward to catching up at another event or IMD program in the future.
Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
