Global In Praxi Network

In more than 30 In Praxi Regional Chapters worldwide, alumni can locate and connect with other WHU graduates – often across boundaries of different degree programs, graduating classes, and career tracks. Social activities for the entire family are supplemented by fun and lecture events, company visits, and numerous “Stammtische.”

The regional chapter gatherings also offer an opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions about the strategy and new developments of the school. School representatives are often directly present in the In Praxi Regional Chapters when they include visits around the world in their travel plans. Furthermore, the In Praxi Regional Chapters provide a valuable point of first contact for alumni and WHU students who are moving to a new country or region.
