HSBA Alumni Association

After successfully completing their studies at HSBA, all graduates have the option of becoming a member of the HSBA Alumni Association, which was founded by the first graduates of HSBA on 18 September 2007. The HSBA Alumni Association connects all of HSBA's graduates and gives them the opportunity to keep in touch with former fellow students and to enhance and broaden their network thereby including students from other years.

Members benefit in many ways from the national and international network of HSBA's Alumni. Real-life examples of these benefits include using the Alumni for help in choosing a postgraduate course, planning a trip, finding your way around in a new city or offering shared accommodation.

Membership Benefits

The HSBA Alumni Association organises events for members twice a year: these are the Alumni Homecoming Event over the rooftops of Hamburg in the summertime (always the last Saturday of June) and the Alumni Christmas Event at the end of December.

The association also provides its members with an online register of members that includes members’ contact details as well as information on master’s degrees, job offers and other activities.

The annual membership fee is EUR 20.

Von Manni, der Maus zum strategischen Einkauf 

ALUMNI-VORSTAND SVENJA KÖSTER 

Die Haspa-Filiale der Zukunft strahlt Wohnzimmeratmosphäre aus. Die Grundidee dahinter: Der Kunde soll sich wie zu Hause fühlen. Nun soll das Konzept auf alle Haspa-Filialen übertragen werden. An dem Roll-out dafür arbeitet Svenja Köster mit Hochdruck. Dabei hat sie immer eine Vorgabe vor Augen hat: „Maximal sieben Tage darf eine leichte Filiale beim Umbau geschlossen werden.“ Ein ehrgeiziges Ziel, das zu Svenja Köster passt. Auf die Frage, wo sie in fünf Jahren stehen möchte, antwortet sie spontan: „an der Spitze – der Einkaufsleitung.“

Ihre Überzeugung, dass man keine Angst haben sollte, groß zu denken, zeigt sich auch bei ihrem Engagement als Vorsitzende der Alumni Asscociation. Sie möchte mit den HSBA Alumni in Design-Thinking-Workshops neue Ideen generieren, ein neues Leitbild entwickeln und die Alumni Association zum wertvollen Netzwerkpartner entwickeln. Außerdem strebt sie an, dass sich irgendwann alle in der Alumni Assocication duzen. Das würde bedeuten, dass die Mitglieder der HSBA Alumni Association zum Beispiel zum Vorstandsvorsitzenden der Otto Group „Alexander“ sagen würden, denn auch Alexander Birken ist Mitglied der HSBA-Alumnivereinigung.

Good Old Days

The HSBA Alumni Association organises events for members twice a year: these are the Alumni Homecoming Event over the rooftops of Hamburg in the summertime (always the last Saturday of June) and the Alumni Christmas Event at the end of December. Also interesting events are organised such as a presentation on Mobility 4.0 by Dr. Rüdiger Grube, Managing Director of Deutsche Bahn. These are always special events!
