The b-it invites you another round of our b-it Alumni Lecture Series.

Professor Dr. Thomas Rose and b-it study co-ordinators Dr. Iman Awaad, Dr. René Röpke and Dr. Alexandra Reitelmann have organized another b-it Alumni Series in Winter Semester 2023/2024 with the goal of bringing b-it graduates and current students together so that students can get a first-hand look at possible career prospects.

The program staff will learn which new topics could or should be included in future and for you as alumni, it is an excellent opportunity to stay in touch with former fellow students or professors, to share your experiences and to pay a visit to your alma mater.

The event will be held online via Zoom. Registration is required. Upon registration, the Zoom link for the respective event you registered will be sent to you.
