IBCoM Lustrum Event
Celebrating 10 years of IBCoM

IBCoM Lustrum Event

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of IBCoM, we organised a grand lustrum event for alumni, students, and (old) friends of IBCoM! We welcomed them (back) to campus for an afternoon filled with a keynote, lectures, panels and networking opportunities. During the afternoon programme we had about 90 enthusiastic guests who all represented their own ties to IBCoM and the jobs they are currently engage in. In the evening we hosted an IBCoM Reunion Party.



Below please find the full programme.

    Parallel activities

    In addition to the sessions at the Erasmus Paviljoen, the following activities are organised:

    12:00-13:00Campus Tour
    Have you been away from the campus for a long time? Then the campus will look a lot different to you! Our alumni from the first few years of IBCoM have likely not seen the new buildings, the renovated University Library, the new parks, and other great facilities that our campus has obtained in the last few years. Two local students will bring you on a campus tour to show you around, and bring you back to the Erasmus Paviljoen in time for the opening.
