You are the best ambassadors AAU can get. You, an alumni, can help shape the future of Aalborg University by contributing with your unique experiences from your professional life. When you do,  you help keep up the proud traditions of Aalborg University. You may wish to give back to AAU and your particular field of study by e.g. recommendations, talks, research collaboration or talent management.

    Become an AAU Ambassador

    As a member of AAU Alumni you can sign up as an ambassador for the university and your previous study programme. In your role as an ambassador, the AAU Alumni secretariat may contact you if we need:

    • A guest lecturer with a unique knowledge of the exact area you are working within
    • A speaker who can provide the graduate students at your previous study programme some examples of how theory can be put into practice in your common field of study
    • Alumni who would like to participate in the quality development of the university and various programmes, i.e. in the form of participation in focus group interviews about the link between study and carreer
    • Alumni who can contribute with cases to storytelling in order to promote your study to future students

    All of the above are examples of how you can contribute in the role of ambassador for AAU Alumni. At any time, you may decline an enquiry from AAU Alumni if you do not feel you can contribute to the specific request.
