GAC Overview

The Global Alumni Convention series was established in 2015 by IDP Education – a world leader in international education and student placement services. The Global Alumni Convention (GAC) is now hosted annually as one of the most prestigious arenas for international education opportunities and business networking in Cambodia.

The GAC consists of three components: the Global Education & Career Expo, the Global Education & Business Forum and the Global Alumni Dinner. Speakers and participants to the GAC includes leaders and senior executives from governments, civil society organisations, local and multi-national companies, local and international education institutions, business chambers, Embassies, industry experts, entrepreneurs, recruitment agencies, alumni from around the world as well as those interested in exposure to international education, employment and business partnership opportunities.

As part of the GAC, the Global Education & Career Expo will host a wide range of international education institutions showcasing world-class study options to students and professionals considering furthering their education overseas. Information on study programs, admission requirements, student visa processes and scholarships will be available directly from education representatives, IDP Education’s study abroad counsellors, visa officers and scholarship providers.
