Online conference: Live and work in Amsterdam

As part of our monthly

Introduction 👋

Because of the current global health crisis we are living, the 57 international branches of KEDGE Alumni have had to adapt, so this year they are holding a new cycle of conferences highlighting a city, a country, or a region of the world. Today, Hong Kong is the city we will look at through the perspective of those who know it best: our expatriate graduates, who receive support from KEDGE Alumni throughout the year despite living far way thanks to our range of online services.


Conference objectives 🧭️

Led by the KEDGE Alumni teams, together with the students of the Kedger Network Association, branch managers, and local graduates, this participatory conference aims to bring our graduates and students closer together, while answering the questions of Kedgers who are curious about living abroad.

Who's this conference for? 👤

This conference is open to all Kedgers, whether a graduate or a student. Have you already graduated and are thinking of a change of scenery? Are you a student and would like to do an internship in this part of the world? Or are you a Kedger simply curious to hear about the experiences from alumni with a different background from your own? Then this conference is for you!
