Last Thursday, October 24th, the Alumni Meeting of the 1st Cohort of the EUS Programme of the Faculty of Economics and Business took place on the occasion of the 30th anniversary.
The event brought together former students and professors of the programme, who have been able to remember the good moments of the university period at the Faculty of Economics and Business. This meeting took place the same day that the Graduation Ceremony of the XXXI Cohort of the EUS Programme. In this way, the Alumni have been sponsors of the recent graduates.
The Programme “Empresa-Universitat-Societat” (EUS Program), initiated in the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Barcelona in 1989. This is addressed to the students with the best academic record of the studies of Administration and Business Management (ADE) and Economics. The programme provides an integral training in English, intensifying the last two years of studies so that the last six months students can do full-time practices at leading organizations in the different economic sectors.
Alumni meetings aim to connect with former classmates and keep the bonds between alumni and the Faculty. In addition, former students have the opportunity to give back a part of what they received and therefore, help the new graduates through the Alumni Wall project.
This initiative allows them to support new generations of students to have better opportunities. Donations can be used entirely for one of the programmes chosen by the donor: Internationalization and attracting talent, Financing research for researchers in training and Improvement of facilities and infrastructures.
