EVENT HIGHLIGHT: Hamburg Study Trip, April 19-20, 2018

This year, the Alumni Study Trip will take place in Hamburg, Germany. At the AGM, Ivo Banek (EMScom14), our sparring partner onsite, revealed "live" what the program will offer. The trip will focus on sustainability, so dear to the City of Hamburg, and will incorporate HafenCity and its environmental implications; the Zukunftsrat, a heavy voice in the political debate; Carbonbay and their CO2 compensation programs; and Otto Group, a sustainable answer to Amazon. Leuphana University and their strong research on sustainability will complete the academic part.

19 alumni and guests have already pre-registered, space is limited on this alumni trip so don't forget to reserve your place at emscomalumni@usi.ch!

Martin Radtke, EMScom18, Elected to the Board

With 34 votes in favor, zero abstentions and zero against, the EMScom Alumni Association welcomes Martin Radtke to the Board for the term 2018-2020. Martin runs his own communication consultant company, Radtke Kommunikation, in Uster, close to Zurich.

In his remarks, Martin recalled his first contacts with the alumni community and how this made him realize that being part of it would allow him to access first-class professors and knowledge; to answer tough questions with honest answers; and, last but not least, have fun. These three aspects led him to not only join the program, but to also join the EMScom Alumni Association Board, and contribute to the success of the program's initiatives.
