CMU Portugal Alumni Network Meets in Lisbon
On June 29th, 2013, several alumni of the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program met in Lisbon, Portugal, with Andrew Shaindlin, associate vice president for Alumni Relations & Annual Giving, of the Carnegie Mellon University, and João Claro, national director of the CMU Portugal Program.
Rita Rodrigues, Ricardo Oliveira, and Gonçalo Pereira, the leaders of the Alumni Network of the CMU Portugal, explained, “it was a great opportunity to get together with alumni who graduated from 2006 to 2013. We had the chance to meet old colleagues not seen in a while, to meet new ones, to hear the news from CMU and to share and discuss a multitude of topics.”
The Alumni Network of the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program was created in 2009 after the graduation ceremony of the first two classes of the CMU Portugal Program. It has 130 members and includes alumni related or not to the CMU Portugal Program. This network intends “to keep the CMU spirit alive and to build a network of professional relations to promote the interchange of knowledge and innovation,“ concluded the leaders of the Alumni Network.
