    We are proud of all of the more than 5000 FI MU alumni. Meet their extraordinary stories

    Because we firmly believe that alumni and their educational and career paths are the best things a college can boast, we established the Alumni Success Stories web gallery in 2017. This currently showcases 40 alumni stories of where you can go with a degree from MU's Faculty of Informatics. Anyway, you can deduce from the following list that it doesn't end with a diploma. Rather, it is the very beginning. The diversity of employment opportunities for FI graduates suggests that courage, curiosity, and a willingness to invent unexplored paths are also important.
