The Alumni Network in India

The community of the alumni from Swiss universities living in India has risen substantially over the past few years to reach over 700 members. Among our alumni community are business leaders, artists, lawyers, engineers, academics and countless others. Their careers have been varied and far reaching, impacting and changing lives.

swissnex India has put its efforts to establish and foster the Swiss Universities’ Alumni in India network to further strengthen the Indo-Swiss bond beyond one’s academic experience in Switzerland. We have created this community through our LinkedIn platform and annual meet-ups in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore in collaboration with the Embassy of Switzerland in India and the Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai. Over the years, it has created the opportunity for alumni members to meet people working in similar fields, network and share expertise.
