The SCM Network offers a growing number of social events organized by students for students and alumni! Through these events, we are happy to contribute to a dynamic student life in and after the SCM Master’s program.


Along with the other events offered, social events proposed by the SCM Network contribute to the creation of strong ties amongst current students as well as alumni. They also allow opportunities for informal networking!


The social section strives to organize a larger diversity of events, catering to SCM students and alumni’s varying interests. We are always open for new ideas and initiatives!


Every semester, the SCM Network organizes a few parties to celebrate important events in the life of a student in the SCM Master’s program.

Graduation Party
Since 2014, a graduation party is organized at the end of October for graduating SCM students. All current students, alumni, and graduates’ friends and families are invited to celebrate together this occasion marking the end of students’ Master studies.

Other Parties
Events such as parties for the beginning or end of the semester are also organized, as well as a Christmas party. Always a good way to blow off steam after exams or to reunite after holidays, SCM parties are guaranteed to be entertaining!

For more information regarding our upcoming parties, check out our calendar of events

Introductory Activities

In strong collaboration with the Master’s program’s mentoring tutor, introductory activities are organized at the start of every academic year for students beginning their first year in the program. These events contribute to creating and strengthening ties among students of the new batch. And most of all, they are great fun!

#SCMgoes WelcomeWeek
For the first time in October 2016, the SCM Network hosted a WelcomeWeek with 3 days of introductory activies for SCM first year students. More than 40 new students participated in the WelcomeWeek which included Introduction Games, a Campus Tour, a Scavenger Hunt throughout Vienna, a Picnic in Prater as well as an amazing night out. We are already excited for the next WelcomeWeek!

Mentoring Dinner
A tradition in the SCM Master’s program, the SCM mentoring dinner stays, year after year, a very successful event. The concept? Current SCM students or recent SCM graduates host in pairs a few new students for a home-cooked meal to share experiences and tips regarding the program. It is a unique chance to get to know students and alumni, and of course of enjoying delicious foods from all around the world!


Once a month is organized an SCM Network Stammtisch: it consists in an evening gathering of SCM students, alumni and faculty in a nice atmosphere outside of the university campus. With changing locations and topics, everyone enjoys the informal get-together to (re)connect whilst having a glass, or two 😉

Whether it is a gathering at a real Viennese Heurigen, visiting local Christmas Markets or competing with each other at the yearly Pub Quiz Stammtisch, the Stammtisch guarantees for legendary nights out. But also SCM-related are on the menu: once a year, students have the opportunity to learn about job applications from fellow alumni.

You shouldn’t miss out on this! So, check out our calendar of events for the date of the next Stammtisch!

Other Social Events

The social section is always open for more suggestions to offer more diverse events. Let us know if you have any event ideas!

WU Ball
Every year, SCM students and alumni try to go to the WU Ball as a group. Before the ball, dance classes are organized to improve your valse skills.
Both Austrian and international students enjoy the opportunity to celebrate long into the night at the Hofburg. Don’t forget your long dresses and tuxedo!

International Dinner
At the International Dinner, SCM Master students present the very best of their countries by preparing delicious typical dishes and desserts. As SCM students are from all over the world, there always is a great variety of dishes. What is better than ending up with a stomach filled with delicious food?
