Alumni Testimonies

“oikos never stopped impacting my path. The oikos Finance Initiative was a perfect fit and a great place to find peers. When I heard about the corresponding Learning Circle on Finance, joining it was a no-brainer. There is one on Entrepreneurship, Finance, Energy, Leadership, Management, Economics and Supply Chain (Fashion). If you are interested in any of these topics, make sure to join one as I did.” Yannic Steffan, alumnus of oikos St. Gallen

"I would like to encourage each and everyone of you to engage in oikos’ international bodies such as the EB and cross-chapter project teams. Apart from the impact you may yield with your engagement and the friendships you may develop with like-minded internationals as you are, via conference calls and face-à-face discussions in cross-cultural working groups you will prepare yourself for a career in an international working environment. Take these chances!” Eike Haas, alumnus of oikos Witten/Herdecke

"After being the oikos Paris President and contributing to the redaction of the first ESSEC PRME report, My next project is a world tour concerning organic waste recycling. We are going to offer free consulting services to social entrepreneurs and NGOs that value organic waste in developing countries." Xavier Martin, alumnus of oikos Paris

"We set up a Hand Papermaking Studio at the Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology, Ahmedabad, India, where I am an architecture student. The idea is to initiate disabled people into producing handmade paper on a commercial scale to make an honest living, which will create livelihood opportunities. The initiative is successful and ready to be replicated." Pranav Gajar, alumnus of oikos Ahmedabad
