Dear Alumni,

Summer is gone and the AAU campus is waking up. This is going to be a 
very special academic year. AAU reached a historical milestone and received accreditation from the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), a prominent American accreditation agency recognized by the US Department of Education. The accreditation is effective starting June 2016 for six years, through 2022—the longest period possible. AAU is one of only a few universities globally that have received this prestigious accreditation.

You can also take a look at the "What's going on at AAU" section to find out about the success of your Alma Mater and upcoming events at AAU. Our "Alumni Community" section will inform you about new projects
. Also, don't forget to read the new interview with our successful alumnus Goran Isirov. Furthermore, if you haven´t browsed through the new AAU website, now is a good time to do so. 

If you have any questions, ideas, or you just simply want to stay in touch with your Alma Mater, 
do not hesitate to send me an email.

Best regards,

Roman

MABLIM open to all BA graduates!

The School of Business Administration would like to announce that their master program is open to all BA graduates. The master program Business and Law in International Markets will provide you with a crucial competitive advantage - a combination of business and law, as well as its application to international markets. Our graduates can work as mid-level managers in a variety of international organizations, including for-profit companies, non-profit organizations, or governmental agencies.
The application deadline for the fall semester for our alumni has been extended to

Dean of IRD Daniela Lenčéš Chalániová recently took part in an international research project on Attitudes and Knowledge of Youth towards Totalitarianism. 

The project is coordinated by the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity and Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński of the University in Warsaw. Goals included in the project are highly relevant to today’s turbulent times, namely, learning more about the next generation’s knowledge and recognition of undemocratic practices. Dr. Lenčéš Chalániová was in charge of conducting focus groups across the Czech Republic and their initial analysis; last week, a report with preliminary findings was released. You can take a look at preliminary findings here.    

Another successful moot court grant completed 

This year the John H. Carey II School of Law participated in another grant issued by the University of London. Based upon our success in developing and producing moot courts over the past few years the School of Law Moot Committee was asked to advise Empire African Institute, located in Accra, Ghana, on the development and implementation of their first moot court which was held in the recently constructed High Court in Accra.The  Former Supreme Court Justice of Ghana and the Gambia, Professor Justice Samuel Date-Bah, led a bench of distinguished Ghanaian jurists who were joined by Associate Dean Jennifer Fallon. 

Alumni scholarship of CZK 100,000

There is still a possibility to apply for an alumni scholarship when applying for the Prague Chapman MBA program. Don't miss the opportunity - the upcoming cohort is almost full and only the last 2 scholarships are available.

The School of International Relations and Diplomacy is proud to share with you the success of our current BA candidate!

 Adéla Jiřičková (at the moment an exchange student in Montevideo, Uruguay) has been short-listed among the top 10 young experts advising NATO how to reorganize itself to be better able to respond to contemporary security threats. The 10 shortlisted authors have written a joint Atlantic Memo with the best policy recommendations for increasing solidarity among members. You can read it here. 




 

The 2015/2016 academic year was more than successful for the John H. Carey II School of Law 

Locally, the 2015/16 academic year had the most successful intake on the London programs since their introduction. Enrollment reached an all-time high as did first-year marks. This marks the first year London students have reached the threshold for merit scholarships.









 

The second international Carey Moot Court

Along with the grant and academic success, the School of Law is currently planning the second International Carey Moot Court which will be held in March 2017. Those interested in supporting our team or event development are encouraged to write to mootcourt (@) aauni.edu. 










 

Alumni Community

The very first AAU Spirit Week is coming!
3.-9.10.2016

 
AAU is about to experience its very first Spirit Week. So what's that about you wonder? It is actually one week consisting of multiple events, one Homecoming Party, and 100% fun. It is also the opportunity for AAU students and alumni to get together and find new friends, employees, business partners, or simply to have fun at AAU. So don't forget to check out the AAU website regularly for the official updates about the event. 
 

Welcome to the alumni community, Class of 2016!

 
The alumni community is once again bigger than ever. The 2016 graduation was a big day for 123 new alumni. We hope your involvement with AAU doesn't end and you will enrich the global network of AAU alumni!
 

Alumni interview: Goran Isirov

 
At the Alumni Spring Reunion 2016, I was excited to have the opportunity to meet some of the Alumni that I knew only from the Alumni database, as well as learn about their lives after graduation. Among all of the interesting alumni at AAU, I had the chance to meet Goran Isirov, an SBA Alumnus. His career path was extremely interesting to hear about.

Alumni Council

 
The Alumni Council had its 5th meeting this August and some key decisions were made. Among others, the start of the Mentoring program and participation of the Alumni Council in next year's AAU Ball were decided upon. Chairwoman of the alumni council Soňa Krausová also decided to symbolically support the alumni community with a monthly donation to show her dedication to and her support of the AAU. We are also proud to mention that Councillor Ondřej Pekáček received a financial reward for being among a select few recipients of the Best Thesis Award. He generously donated his financial reward to the AAU Alumni Community. At the end of September, the Alumni Council will commence its 6th meeting in order to hold interviews with candidates for representatives of our AAU committees. If you are interested in more information regarding the application process for a committee alumni representative position, or the positions themselves, please contact us.
