Red Ladders | CMU-A Alumni Success Stories

Sharing Knowledge and Stories of Success

CMU-Australia launched a new virtual event platform, “Red Ladders”, to encourage alumni in different parts of the world to return to the campus virtually and share their success, knowledge and inspiration with students and each other. ‘Red Ladders’ events highlight how the master’s degrees at CMU-A have changed the careers of graduates and propelled them into new and interesting ventures. While all CMU-A alumni have their own ‘red ladder’, all share the passion to solve difficult problems and seek to make the most of the skills gained at CMU-A. Their career ladders have been truly transformational.

Importantly, the experience gained from the career success of alumni provide insights and lessons for current students. Alumni and students will also be able to develop linkages for future career opportunities. The diversity of the career journeys of alumni can also be strengthened through the cross-fertilisation of innovative ideas and there will also be opportunities for partnerships to developed.

CMU-A is proud of the success that our alumni have achieved since developing a strong foundation of knowledge, skills and networks during their time at the university. Through this platform, CMU-A will encourage and support Alumni as they continue to climb to new heights.
