Over 90 percent of every graduating class become members of the alumni association and can thus profit from its internationally oriented network.

The In Praxi network increases in both quantity and quality with every graduating class at WHU, thanks to its members’ diverse personal backgrounds and chosen career paths. Our international diversity is steadily increasing, as well.

In Praxi has also experienced a clear growth in the number of members with significant professional experience, especially graduates of the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Program and the WHU MBA Program. These (E)MBA graduates contribute know-how and practical business insights that can greatly enhance the academic study of business science.
