Afterwork KEDGE Alumni in Bordeaux!Bordeaux
Because of the current global health crisis, the 57 international branches of KEDGE Alumni have had to adapt. So this year they are holding a series of conferences that put the spotlight on a city, a country, or a region of the world. This time we look at New York City from the perspective of those who know it best: our expatriate graduates who receive support from KEDGE Alumni throughout the year, despite living far away, thanks to our range of online services.
Led by the KEDGE Alumni teams, together with the students of the Kedger Network Association, branch managers, and local graduates, this interactive conference strives to bring our graduates and students closer together and answers the questions of those Kedgers who are curious about living abroad.
Who's this online conference for? 👤
This conference is open to all Kedgers, whether a graduate or a student. Have you already gotten your degree and want a change of scenery?
