Welcome to the LUMES alumni network
700 students from nearly 100 countries
Since LUMES started in 1997, more than 700 students have graduated from the programme, and LUMES alumni are now spread all over the world. We strive to organise an alumni conference every five years, but our alumni also stay in touch through Facebook, LinkedIn and the Lund University Alumni Network.
We encourage all alumni to join our networks:
To connect with current events at LUMES and LUCSUS follow us on Facebook.

Our alumni are very important to us at the LUMES programme - it is through the network we get to hear about your adventures after LUMES. If you are an alumni and would like to share a story with us, or would like to come and talk to our current students, we would love to hear from you at: info [at] lucsus [dot] lu [dot] se.
Life after LUMES
Increasingly, more and more sectors in society, as well as local and national authorities, and non-governmental organisations are recognising the need to address complex social, environmental and economic challenges from a holistic perspective. As such, the interdisciplinary training gained through the LUMES programme opens employment opportunities for a wide array of career paths in various private sectors, governmental, nongovernmental, and academic settings.
Our alumni are working for transnational companies, international non-governmental environmental organisations, and state authorities, as well as international organisations such as the World Bank and the United Nations. Many alumni have also continued with doctoral studies and are now working at universities around the world, including Lund University. Some of them have also become teachers at the LUMES programme, something we at LUMES are very happy about.
