There are currently 3 different paths to join the TOChina Alumni community:

1. participants who successfully complete the CMBP - China Management & Business Program - automatically become members of the Alumni community for one year after graduating from the program;

2. students who successfully complete both the "From Case Study to Reality (FCStR)" workshop and at least a 6-month mobility program (or double-degree) promoted across Sinophone Asia as part of the Master’s Degree in International Studies (China & Global Studies) of the University of Turin are invited to join the Alumni community upon graduation;

3. students who have successfully completed the 2024 "Essential tools for managing China-Europe cross cultural business relations" laboratory and who also successfully complete at least a 6-month mobility program (or double-degree) promoted across Sinophone Asia as part of the Master’s Degree in International Studies (China & Global Studies) of the University of Turin May apply to join the Alumni community upon graduation. This third path will no longer be available from 2025 onwards.

Alumni and Alumnae are invited to support the many activities of the community through a very modest membership fee in the first five years. After five years of continuous membership they become life members, free of charge.
