As of September 2020, IBEI launched a new programme, the #IBEIalumni Cafés, a new initiative aimed at getting insights of the alumni professional paths among IBEI graduates.
On a regular basis, IBEI alumni offer a virtual coffee talk to share professional experiences with graduate peers in order to get insights on the global job market, post questions, learn, exchange ideas

Master’s in International Security 2015-16
Junior Consultant Security & Justice at Ecorys
“The knowledge I acquired during my Master’s degree served as a useful basis to build on as I started working in the field of international security. The Master’s helped me strengthen my analytical, writing and public presentation skills, and the courses I took inspired me to continue pursuing a career in this area.
But perhaps most importantly, IBEI gave me the opportunity
to learn how to live and work in a multicultural environment.”
Alumni online Network
At the end of 2019, IBEI created a digital platform to facilitate the gathering of its alumni. Currently the IBEI Alumni network consists of almost fifteen hundred graduates from all over the world who have completed the IBEI Masters programmes.
With this initiative, IBEI pretends to extend its full potential in terms of its graduates, their professional careers, as well as to encourage their encounter all over the world.
