Alumni Chapter China - Shanghai

For more than twelve years, Tilburg University has invested in developing strategic alliances with various reputable universities in Beijing, Shanghai and Shandong.  Currently, Tilburg University has 650 alumni with a Chinese nationality who live in the Netherlands, in China and in other parts of the world.

Considering the constant increase of the number of alumni and the importance of strengthening our cooperation with our partner universities in China, we consider it of outmost importance to support our Alumni Chapter in China & Shanghai.

The Shanghai Chapter primary functions are to support our TIAS & Tilburg Universitey alumni in their career development, to help attract new talent and to connect Tilburg University to the private and public sectors.

Launch Tilburg Chapter Shanghai

By Tilburg University Alumna Bregje Swinkels

Last Saturday the 1st of November 2014 the Launch of our Tilburg Alumni Chapter in Shanghai took place. About 35 alumni from both TIAS and Tilburg University reconnected on this joyful occasion. Our former students from both Chinese and Dutch origin living and working in Shanghai attended the event.

Kees Koedijk, Dean of TIAS, opened the evening by officially launching the alumni chapter in Shanghai. He furthermore introduced TIAS lecturer Rachel Pownall who shared an interesting lecture on art as a financial investment, she shared both the opportunities and pitfalls that art gives as a non-conventional investment. The evening continued with networking and sharing stories about work and memories of studying in Tilburg. A great start for the Chinese chapter in Shanghai.

By keeping in touch with our alumni all over the world we hope to create a strong community of alumni from both TIAS and Tilburg University, which will give our alumni good networking opportunities and the schools worldwide ambassadors for both TIAS and Tilburg University.
