Alumni Events

Graduation Ceremony

Around 100 graduates in black robes throw their mortarboards high into the blue sky over HPI - a long awaited moment and an unforgettable experience for the new alumni. Inspired by the American model, the graduation ceremony at Hasso Plattner Institute has a form all its own. For the brand-new graduates and "their" HPI it is also the beginning of a lasting, even life-time, alumni partnership.

HPI Alumni meet ...

The after-work activity HPI Alumni meet ... is intended for those just starting their career as well as those already on their way. Here, not only the guests but also the hosts are former HPI students. Business founders and executives from Berlin and Potsdam invite participants to their offices for an on-location information session looking at areas of business, open positions and career development opportunities. HPI Alumni meet ... means that the focus is on encounters between HPI alumni. In a relaxed after-work atmosphere, professional networks can be founded and extended. And whoever feels like it can close the evening with old and new friends at the pub around the corner.

The Evening Talk

The evening talk is the possibility for encounters between the current generation of students and HPI alumni. With a look back in time, former students talk about the beginning of their career and its development. For students this opens a view to prospects for their own future, when they will soon be facing the question of what will happen after graduation. This event, with its light, relaxed atmosphere, is open to the public and underscores the alumni program beyond HPI's borders - please bring your colleagues, friends and acquaintances!

Homecoming Event

Recalling great memories, renewing friendships from the past and forging plans for the future over hot coals and ice-cold drinks...

The central social event in the alumni program begins actively, for example with a canoe trip on Griebnitzsee. Here, the focus is on fun and shared experience. Later at a barbeque on the HPI campus feelings of home return and the good "old" student days are suddenly there again.

... and more!

HPI alumni support further events at HPI as speakers or exhibitors. For example:

Both events are open to HPI graduates contingent on advance registration.

The Alumni Office and the HPI student club "Alumni" inform all HPI alumni punctually about current events.
