Research on Alumni Professional Progression

Research on Alumni Professional Progression (BLZA) is carried out at year one, three and five after graduation among alumni who have agreed to receive an online survey by e-mail:

  • By completing the relevant Declaration when validating their Clearance Slip  (until October 2016);
  • By completing the appropriate section in the Work Experience Completion Card (beginning from the summer semester 2016/2017);

Research on Alumni Professional Progression (BLZA) research is carried out via two routes:

  • A survey available throughout the entire academic year (survey link).
  • The link to the survey is sent by e-mail to students who have agreed to participate in BLZA.

A detailed report is available at the Bureau for Cooperation with Corporate Partners and Alumni. In order to read the report, please contact us by e-mail at bwgia@ue.katowice.pl, with “Professional Progression of Alumni” [Badania Losów Zawodowych Absolwentów] entered in the subject line.
