Alumni of the Diplomatic Academy

Since 1964, more than 2,100 students from 122 different countries have graduated from the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna. Many DA alumni have become diplomats but even more have chosen different careers, particularly in the public administration of their countries, in EU institutions, international organisations, and private businesses.

To maintain a link between the DA and its graduates, to contribute to the career services of the DA and to support DA students, the Alumni Association of the Diplomatic Academy ClubDA has been founded.
