A Premier Network for Professionals
Singapore, 27 October: The ICC Academy, the educational arm of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), has announced the launch of its global Alumni network.

ICC Academy General Manager, Daniel Kok said: “Alumni groups are often associated with universities and colleges. However, with the ever-changing business landscape, we have witnessed a vast increase in popularity in the corporate sector. Since the launch of the ICC Academy in 2015, our presence has grown significantly and has set a new standard for professional education. Thanks to our collaboration with organisations at the forefront of international trade, we now boast an alumni community spanning over 170 countries.
“With an impressive presence such as this, we decided that it was the right time to unite all ICC Academy graduates across a free shared network” added Mr Kok.
Reasons to register to the ICC Academy Alumni Directory
Showcase your ICC credentials
As a first step, all ICC Academy graduates are invited to register their details with the Alumni directory to include name, image, qualifications, industry and LinkedIn profile (optional).
By completing the registration form, candidates will be listed as a confirmed ICC graduate, making it convenient to share their achievements with clients, colleagues and prospective employers.
Please note, following submission of personal details, the ICC Academy will run a fact-check, after which the graduate’s credentials will be published on the website.
Broaden your professional network
The Alumni provides a platform for graduates to share their achievements, develop business opportunities and expand their professional network among a large accredited community.
Candidates can expand their professional network by connecting via LinkedIn and network with recent as well as past graduates; connections that might lead to internships, jobs, clients, partnerships and other valuable career opportunities. Having an ICC alma mater in common and being able to network via regular in-person events or online platforms will make it easier to form and maintain these valuable connections.
Boost your employment opportunities
In addition, the directory will be shared with HR departments of national and international banks, corporations and other organisations involved in international trade.
Whether graduates are making a career change, positioning themselves for a promotion, or looking to hire candidates, the ICC Academy Alumni registry can help them along the way.
By being listed on the ICC Academy website as a confirmed ICC graduate, candidates will benefit from increased visibility, when companies are looking to recruit ICC qualified candidates.
Being an ICC qualified graduate, we will provide some of our candidates with the opportunity to be featured on the ICC Academy website.
