The Alumni Relations Unit endeavours to organise internships for graduating students with an aim to facilitate their transition from student life to professional careers within Aga Khan Development Network and institutions of the Ismaili Community. Where these internships are established in the students’ home countries, they also facilitate their reintegration into their societies.

The programme aims to give practical experience to our graduates in fields that are of interest to them and relevant to their education. Participating agencies have also benefited from our graduates’ academic backgrounds and their critical thinking abilities. As part of the programme, all host agencies have participated in a comprehensive evaluation strategy to ensure that the programme remains effective for all parties involved.  Placements in 2013
