Swiss Alumni Night NYC

The NYC edition of our networking event for alumni and former affiliates of Swiss universities, in partnership with the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York.

From the subway’s Helvetica to Herzog & de Meuron’s “Jenga Tower” in Tribeca, the Swiss influence on New York is unmistakable. But this influence isn’t just visible in the built environment – talented alumni from Swiss universities are everywhere in the city, at the forefront of business, research, and the arts

The Consulate General of Switzerland in New York and Swissnex invite you to an evening of networking for alumni and former affiliates of Swiss universities. You will be able to connect with entrepreneurs, researchers, and executives with a shared academic background and hear from speakers who studied in Switzerland as they discuss their journeys to the US.

The welcome remarks and talks will be followed by food, drinks, music, and plenty of opportunities to network
