Alumni Hall of Fame Talks

In 2010, the Diplomatic Academy started a new initiative to honour its most distinguished alumni. Each year, DA graduates from all over the world are inducted to the DA Alumni Hall of Fame.

Yet, the Alumni Hall of Fame is way more than just a plaque on the wall. It is DA’s goal to congratulate its alumni on their outstandingly interesting and successful careers as well as to show our students and young alumni what they, too, can achieve after graduating from the Academy.

In addition, the Diplomatic Academy and ClubDA are happy to organise talks and panel discussions with Hall of Fame members on a regular basis:
