Students & Alumni

The German, Arab and increasingly international students already have a great deal to offer when they commence their master’s studies:

  • Practical experience
  • Professional networks
  • Interest in German-Arab cooperation

Personal and professional networks continue to grow by way of studying in Germany and the MENA region, field trips, guest lectures, internships in companies, organisations and projects, the master thesis and, in particular, the annual Berlin Module.

The to date 167 GAMP alumni hold key positions in companies, ministries and organisations or support international cooperation on site in projects – they are ambassadors of their programmes and the most important resource of our GAMP Network.

Testimonials from Students and Alumni

Get to know our students and alumni and find out more about studying in and working after GAMP:

EMEA: Economy in Action
Ramia Ismail is a Syrian student of Economics of the Middle East (EMEA). In Syria she worked for different NGOs and governmental organisations as a researcher and consultant. Syria is in deep crisis. What it really needs now are people with visions for its future. Ramia Ismail is one of them.

REMENA: Field Trips
REMENA had to shift its 6th intake to Kassel on a short notice. This way, new destinations for excursions had to be found. Yet, Matthias Namgalies enjoyed the field trips in this different, but still exciting first semester of his studies with REMENA.

INEMA: Educate-Me
As a trained engineer, Yasmin Helal’s career could have looked totally different. But Yasmin decided to start a not-for-profit education organization that serves local children and families to become curious learners. In INEMA she learns exactly what she needs for managing her organization even more successfully.

ECAR/EMEA: Roads Travelled
Tobias Caris is alumni of the master’s programme “Economic Change in the Arab Region (ECAR)”. During his studies he made most of the opportunities offered to him. Now, Tobias works in the Syria Unit of the German Federal Foreign Office. Because of the ongoing conflict in Syria, this is not an easy task.

REMENA: Blowing Minds in Egypt
Egypt is emitting a lot of CO2. REMENA alumna Rawya Elshazly (KfW) knows: It should not stay this way.
