On 22 January, 2015, nearly 1,000 alumni came together to attend the UM Star Lectures, days after the 39th anniversary of Maastricht University. Simultaneously held at twelve locations in four countries, UM organised these lectures as a way of embracing its alumni community.
The UM Star Lectures were held in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Den Bosch, London, Maastricht, Munich, Rotterdam, The Hague, and Venlo. Four of the participating professors are from SBE: Prof dr. A. Riedl, Prof. dr. R. Bauer, Prof. dr. P. Eichholtz, and Prof. dr. M. Heijltjes.
We hope that, with the UM Star Lectures a new tradition was born that allowed UM alumni to join in the anniversary celebrations. The event gave a high turnout of alumni the opportunity to expand their knowledge, build their networks, and share their pride in their alma mater.
