The Alumni and Career Advisory Office (ACAO) was set up in late 2017 with the primary role to drive initiatives and programs aimed at creating opportunities for students’ development of career and life skills and facilitating alumni relationship in the interest of advancing INCIEF’s mission.
The ACA Office reports to the Deputy President Operations and works cross-functionally with the Admissions and Student Affairs Division (ASAD), the Student Representative Council (SRC), the schools as well as the Corporate Communication Unit to plan, implement and monitor student and alumni related programs and activities.
Furthermore, the Office plays a key role in soliciting feedback from students participating in career related initiatives, upon graduation and as alumni, with the objective to understand the specific needs of each group and accordingly design and deliver purposeful programs with tangible outcomes and sustainable impact.
As we were just newly established, we would like to hear from you, our alumni on how we can improve from time to time. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
