WHY AURAK ALUMNI?
Creating an engaged, supportive alumni network is crucial to an institution’s success. Good alumni relationships bring many benefits to both the institution and the alumni. AURAK Alumni are using their transformative educational experiences as a stepping-stone to achieve their goals and fuel innovation and inspiration in the UAE and around the world.
Supporters – An engaged alumni network allows the University to benefit from the skills and experience of our graduates, by offering their support to our students, to the institution, and to each other. If we keep them properly informed and engaged, alumni are our most loyal supporters and our best ambassadors, offering invaluable marketing and promotion across their personal and professional networks.
Expertise – Talented alumni will likely have a wealth of experience and skills to share with current students via talks and newsletters. In certain cases, this could go even further with alumni offering to support students practically in work placements and help them launch their careers.
Employability – Alumni also donate their valuable time to offer careers support to current students through innovative schemes such as our CEPE training courses, work shadowing and professional networking opportunities. These enhance the students’ experience and give them that competitive edge in today’s tough job market. It is through this support from alumni that we are also able to retain our place as one of the highest-ranked institutions in the UAE for graduate employability and starting salary.
Financial – Because of the dedication and gratitude many alumni have for the institution, they are often generous with fundraising efforts. Donations enable us to offer life-changing scholarships and bursaries to talented students who may otherwise have to give up their studies. They also enable the financial sector to provide students with advanced facilities and equipment for teaching and pioneering research.
Whether you are a recent graduate or earned your degree several years ago, it is a good idea to reach out to the Internship, Career Development and Alumni Affairs Department and register your contact information. That way you will be able to take advantage of the benefits associated with being an alumnus.Read More
