Alumni Services

Every good-bye is also a new beginning: After completing their studies, our graduates automatically become alumnae and alumni of the SML. They are kept informed about the university, continuing education programs, and events. We actively promote the exchange among like-minded people. It pays off to participate.

At Alumni Relations, everyone is on first-name terms, and everyone is treated with respect.


In addition to SML events, the various alumni associations and alumni chapters also have special offerings. In an informal atmosphere, they exchange knowledge, share their experiences, and engage in networking activities.

Homecoming Day: Our Flagship Event

Every year, the SML invites former students to attend a large-scale event. The program includes presentations and panel discussions on current topics. At the buffet reception followed by the Alma Mater Night, alumni can meet old friends and acquaintances, network, celebrate, and have fun.

Alumni Award

Since 2016, we have been awarding the prestigious Alumni Award for outstanding performance, specific achievements, or «lifetime achievement» to graduates of the SML or predecessor institutions.
