To date, more than 3800 diplomats and leaders from over 180 countries have participated in our programmes. Approximately 300 of them are currently assigned to their respective diplomatic missions in Germany, some of them as Ambassadors. Our alumni retain their status as important contacts for us whether assigned to posts in Germany or abroad. In keeping with a network-orientated foreign policy, we place great value on keeping in touch with our former participants after the completion of their courses with us. We have therefore developed a broad selection of instruments which allow us to promote global networks and to strengthen the relationships within the existing alumni network.
Alumniportal Deutschland is a global alumni network targeting Germany-Alumni and funded by the Federal Foreign Office (AA). It is a cooperation of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Goethe Institute. Training for International Diplomatsalso uses this service to allow its alumni to keep in touch with one another.
