Being a graduate of our business school offers many lifelong benefits.

Right from the minute you enroll in your professional MBA at WU Executive Academy, you become part of the WU Executive Club. The WU Executive Club offers numerous postgraduate services as well as access to a network of both current students and alumni. The WU Executive Club offers particular advantages when it comes to advancing in your career. From access to a vast alumni network to lifelong learning opportunities, we provide many services to help you excel within your field long after graduation. Here are just a few examples of how.

Alumni have exclusive opportunities to network with international executives

Networking is a key business skill for executives to have. In fact, a study of German professionals found that those who maintain a strong professional network enjoy both higher current salaries and experience stronger salary growth over time. While networking correlates with a lucrative salary, it also has other benefits. For example, by maintaining a strong network with professionals both in and outside your industry, you gain access to the knowledge and experience that they are able to share. This, in turn, can offer you critical insights into tackling challenges within your own career. As befits a

global MBA program, the WU Executive Club is truly international in scope. For example, our alumni network consists of more than 4,500 executives from 85 countries. This is a vast and diverse pool of talent that you can benefit from after graduation. Through exclusive invitations to events, conferences, and panel discussions, you can build your network within this pool of exceptional talent.
