Aalto Alumni Agents

There are already a whopping one hundred thousand alumni at Aalto University - and each of them is as welcome to the Aalto community as when entering the campus for the first time. Whether you spent your study year in Otaniemi, the Arabian factory landscapes, the Töölö campus or even Fabianinkatu, you are an important part of our alumni family. By becoming an Aalto Alumni Agent, you will find a meaningful way for you to make an impact in our community and learn something new.

"We have over 100,000 alumni who are a crucial asset to the university. As the need for lifelong learning increases, alumni activities are now more important than ever. We want to provide a forum where working alumni have the opportunity to meet new members of the university community. I am glad that the alumni network represents diverse experience in various fields", says Ilkka Niemelä, President of Aalto University.

The Aalto community offers students, researchers, and experts in different fields a unique environment to learn from one another. We want to take one step forward in ensuring that every member of the Aalto alumni network finds a meaningful way of taking part in our learning community.

As an Alumni Agent, you'll be an active member of our alumni network – on your terms. You will have rich opportunities for learning something new and deepening your knowledge while also contributing your valuable skills to our community.

Maybe you're entering a new phase in your career, and would like a little sparring from seasoned professionals?

Whether it's your old hobby or a new area of interest, you're sure to find like-minded people in our community.

You may also want to tell Aalto's stories and give guidance to high school students in your area who are interested in studying business, technology, art, or design. Or maybe it's just been way too long since you last got together, and you would like to create an evening to remember for your old school friends.
