WIWEX GmbH was founded in 2007 as a subsidiary of the non-profit association of students and alumni of the economics faculty of the Humboldt University in Berlin. WIWEX works in close cooperation with students and professors of the faculty.
It all started back in 1999 when students and alumni of the faculty founded the WIWEX initiative and with it the first alumni network at the Humboldt University’s Faculty of Business and Economics.
As the first project of the sponsoring association of students and alumni of the faculty, the StudentenRat eV, which was also founded in 1999, the aim was to advance the alumni work at the faculty and to improve the offers for students and alumni.
Profitable networks quickly developed and more and more former students of the faculty came to appreciate the network in order to come into contact with students. Initial workshops and a mentoring program brought current and former students together.
In March 2007, when WIWEX GmbH was founded by the non-profit StudentenRat eV, the professional structure for the further expansion of the career service was created.
Today, WIWEX is a successful career service at the Faculty of Business and Economics and also organizes the Berlin-wide career fair MADE IN BRERLIN and the Consulting and Finance Lounge.
