Online conference - Living and working in Moscow

As part of our monthly "KEDGE Alumni Around the World" conference series, several graduates living in Moscow share their experiences

Introduction 👋

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, it’s the city of Moscow’s turn to be studied and described by 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.



Conference objectives 🧭️

Led by the KEDGE Alumni teams, together with the students of the Kedger Network Association, the branch manager, and graduates living there, this interactive conference aims to bring our graduates and students closer together, while responding to the questions of those Kedgers who are curious about living abroad.
