International students and alumni are increasingly a fact of life for many universities around the world. While these institutions employ different approaches in regards to their international alumni, CEU has garnered increased attention for its unique model of connecting with and engaging its graduates. Four recent publications have cited CEU’s approach as an example to other institutions.
“We’re innovative, and now that is being recognized by others,” said Serge Sych, CEU’s Director of Alumni and Corporate Relations. “This is the biggest acknowledgement you can get.”
