The Importance of Networking as a Professional
Have you ever heard the saying “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”? The connections that you make in university can help you throughout the rest of your career – and even your personal life. The professional world is all about having a strong network of people that you can turn to for advice, opportunity, mentorship, and testimony.
We want you to have all the tools you need to succeed, even before your first day of classes.
Why is Networking so Important?
- Student & Alumni Connections – Students that graduate from Atlantis University go on to do great things. You may find your future business partner while you are here or meet an alum that is looking to hire someone at their start-up.
- Diverse Connections – Thousands of students from all over the world come to attend Atlantis University every year. This gives you the opportunity to meet people that can teach you about different cultures and grow an international network.
- Real-World Experiences – Meeting people who have been in the working world for many years (or decades) will teach you things that you can’t learn in the classroom. You will be able to see the nuances and inner workings of the professional world first-hand.
- Lifelong Relationships – Networking isn’t just about finding someone that can do you a favor. It’s about creating long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships. The connections that you make while in university will lay the foundation for your career.
Atlantis University will provide you with everything you need to develop strong connections with other students, alumni, professors, and business leaders. In addition to networking events, Atlantis University offers applied research programs, workshops, and group projects that are designed to give you the chance to work with industry leaders.
