Student organisations at the FEB

Alumni FEB

The FEB graduates, who are successfully building their professional careers, meet in the Alumni FEB club. Alumni FEB is a professional, scientific and social meeting-point of all graduates from all generations of students that studied at the FEB. This strengthens the ties between the graduates and the FEB and broadens the cooperation with the economy and other social institutions.

The aim of these ties is to reach mutual professional and personal benefits from the exchange of knowledge and experience. The FEB thus understands the economic and social issues better and which enables it to develop new programmes for new generations of students in a more profound way. Many Alumni members hold important managerial positions in public and private organisations in Slovenia and abroad.
