Webinar: Living and working in Asia, our graduates speak out

As part of our "KEDGE Alumni around the world" series of conferences, 2 graduates based in Asia will talk about their experiences there.


Today, it's the turn of ASIA to be studied and told by those who know it best: our expatriate graduates, who throughout the year are supported by KEDGE Alumni despite the distance, thanks to our range of online services.


Conducted by KEDGE Alumni teams, alongside students from the Forum Events association, this participative conference aims to bring our graduates and students closer together, while answering questions from kedgers curious about expatriation.

At 11:30 a.m.

Open to all

This conference is open to all kedgers, whether graduates or students, but also to the wider KEDGE community (partners, teachers, staff...) and anyone else interested in the topic.

Are you thinking of doing an international internship, going to a Partner University or moving abroad? Then this conference is for you!


Asia is a huge continent, with diverse cultures, languages, religions and customs. From the skyscrapers of Singapore to the ancient temples of India, from the bustling markets of Bangkok to the majestic mountains of Japan, each country has its own unique character.

Life in Asia for expats can be an exciting adventure filled with cultural, culinary and professional discoveries. However, it can also present challenges such as language barriers, cultural differences and administrative formalities. .... would you like to find out more?
