Last Thursday, June 11, 2015, 850 guests, including WU and WU Executive Academy alumni from around the globe, faculty members, cooperation partners and friends, gathered for the traditional summer party, jointly organized by the WU Alumni Club and the WU Executive Academy. In the splendid setting of Palais Auersperg, the international guests not only enjoyed this annual get-together but also celebrated a remarkable triple anniversary.

The impressive three-tier anniversary cake gave away that there would be much to celebrate this year: 2015 marks not only the 10th anniversary of the WU Executive Academy but also the 15th anniversary of the Global Executive MBA and the 20th anniversary of the WU Alumni Club.

This year's summer party was also special for another reason: It brought together alumni from a particularly large number of countries. Some of them had come all the way from Russia, Romania, Slovenia, Hungary, Croatia, Germany and even China to spend an enjoyable evening with former fellow students and make international contacts in a relaxed atmosphere.

WU’s next top models

The undoubted highlight of the evening was a photo booth in which the guests could take creative snapshots that were the cause of much mirth. Being able to print out unique souvenir pictures was, however, not the only tempting reason for them to pose as models. There was also a photo contest: The lucky winner will receive an "Atelierele Pegas" bike that Executive MBA Bucharest graduates Manuela Maftei, Radu Pojoga and Adrian Francu brought to Vienna this January in the course of their capstone project and subsequently gave to the WU Executive Academy.
