Plenty of member advantages
After years of work, the Göttingen Economic Scientists Association (Verein "Göttinger Wirtschaftswissenschaftler e.V." or GWW) voted during its last meeting on February 22, 2008 to join the Göttingen Alumni Association (Alumni Göttingen e.V.), an international network of former students from all degree programmes as well as scientists, employees, friends and supporters of Göttingen University.
The alumni association was founded in 2001 and has since acted as a platform for connecting former students from all faculties as well as scientists, employees, friends and supporters of the alma matter with each other. The association currently has 4,000 members around the world. The Faculty of Economic Sciences is also pleased that it can maintain contact with students and former students through the network.
One of the membership benefits is access to an interactive alumni Internet portal to stay in contact with former fellow students and the university. The association also regularly sends invitations to annual regional and international Göttingen alumni meetings and is also the first of its kind in Germany to offer a membership card with a chip, which allows you to receive an employee discount at the Göttingen student association cafeterias and use the Lower Saxony State and University Library (Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek or SUB) at no charge.
