Welcome to MACA Alumni Network

The UCPH MACA Alumni Network is for graduates from the MA in Applied Cultural Analysis at the University of Copenhagen and Lund University. This professional network connects graduates across countries, professional fields and interests. The network's mission is to strengthen the network of MACA alumni as well as strengthen the program itself.  

MACA Alumni is a professional network established in 2021. If you want to join our professional network please join our events and our LinkedIn page

Our continued success and existence depends upon the involvement of MACA alumni, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you’re interested in being involved.
