Networking event in Vienna

A special alumni networking event brought together Vienna alumni from as far back as the 1980s with members of the Webster University board of trustees and the Webster Vienna advisory board.

June 8 was the occasion for another Webster University centennial event in a historic setting: A networking event in the Vienna city center, where members of the Webster University board of trustees, the Vienna campus advisory board, and several alumni had the opportunity to exchange insights and reflections from Webster’s past and future.

Leadership in Vienna

A busy visit to Vienna had President Stroble and Provost Schuster meeting with the board of trustees, Webster Vienna alumni, staff and advisors, and members of this year’s GLA cohort.

The event was hosted by Erste Bank in Vienna, which offered the beautiful rooftop Erste Bank Lounge as a setting for the event in Vienna’s prestigious 1st district. Webster University alumni at the networking event represented graduating classes going all the way back to the 1980s, when Webster Vienna opened as the University’s second international location.

Participants included distinguished civic, business and political leaders.

Webster University President Elizabeth (Beth) J. Stroble and Erste Bank’s Friedrich Rödler welcomed the guests to a scene that provided stunning views of Vienna’s historic city center.

For the alumni, it was also an opportunity to reunite with former classmates and to relive old memories from their student years. Exquisite hors d’oeuvres, delicately crafted desserts and delicious sparkling wine rounded off the evening, which lasted long after the sun set over Vienna’s beautiful skyline.

Webster Vienna was host to the June board of trustees meeting this week, as well as the June sessions of this year’s Global Leadership Academy cohort — making the week a unique opportunity for many different ambassadors and community members from Webster University to interact.
