KU Leuven Young Alumni get-together
March 5, 2020
On Thursday March 5, young alumni got together at BXL Zoute for an informal drink and chat. Great evening! If you are under 40 and interesting to attend at a future event, please let us know!
A Special evening with Professors Paul Krugman and Paul De Grauwe
Watch the entire evening here.
Moderated by alumnus Peter Vanham, the evening was a lively discussion between two economics giants, Nobel prize winner Dr. Paul Krugman and our own Dr. Paul De Grauwe. The evening started with a networking reception, a lively gathering of alumni and friends of KU Leuven, including old students of Prof. De Grauwe who had a chance to meet their professor again.
The formal part of the evening was introduced by Yves Wantens of Flanders House (the location of the event, with a magnificient view of Manhattan and the Empire State Building and a georgous evening sky), followed by a Welcome by KU Leuven Vice-Rector Peter Lievens.
We sincerely thank all members for their contribution to the event and our chapter, with special thanks to our Patron and Board members for the continuous support.

We started a new series, Captain of Academia, where we have a chat with a successful academic. Who better to start with than Prof. André Oosterlinck, entrepreneur, rector and professor?
Over 20 alumni joined us in a boardroom style fireside chat led by fellow alumnus Peter Vanham, World Economic Forum. A lively story covered André’s life, his way to the top and lots of anecdotes.
The story of a fellow Alumnus
We have started a new tradition: every quarter we will give the floor to one of our alumni and his/her story from childhood to today. We hope they may be inspiring to our incoming alumni.
