Dear Fellow IMD Alumni, dear Guests,
A warm welcome to the IMD Alumni Geneva Club! As an Alum of IMD you belong to one of the most influential and active networks in Switzerland and worldwide.
We typically hold one event each month, under various formats: business luncheon with top ranked executives, academics or relevant contributors from the social and cultural field, onsite company visits, after-work drinks, roundtables. Other events include the golf tournament and the business school ball.
We have developed strong relationships with other top business schools as well as the EPFL in Lausanne. We also want to develop the communities such as ACE (Alumni Community for Entrepreneurship).
We strive to offer various activities to give you the opportunity to develop your network with our diverse community, to generate business relationships and to allow for continuous learning.
