Organisation

Our association is organised in accordance with Swiss Civil Code (Zivilgesetzbuch; ZGB) Article 60ff. Our members are the alumni organisations of Bern University of Applied Sciences. On behalf of Bern University of Applied Sciences, we take care of contacting former BFH students and promote exchange amongst alumni organisations.
