The Kobe University International Alumni Net was established in 2001 to strengthen ties between Kobe University and alumni living abroad.

As of October 2011, there are 10 (Korea, Taiwan, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Europe, Myanmar) international alumni associations. There is also a plan to expand the network further by launching an alumni association in North America and Oceania in the coming years.

In Jan. 2011, Kobe University held its first Global-Link Forum in Bangkok to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the International Alumni Net. The purpose of the Global Link Forum is to form stronger bonds with Kobe University's intelligent information resources, which include the international alumni network and partner universities. It is also meant to heighten the presence of the "Kobe University Brand" by having prominent university officials, such as the president promoting the university.

The second Global-Link Forum will be held in Seoul from Nov.25-26, 2011. This forum will be held in collaboration with partner universities in Korea, supported by the "Kobe University Alumni Association in Korea". The two day event includes a study in Japan seminar, a symposium and lectures. Kobe University plans to introduce the development and results of its academic research on a wide scale at the symposium. One of the special speakers at the symposium will be a former official of the Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. President FUKUDA Hideki will be delivering a speech on the role Kobe University will play in the joint science and technological collaboration between the two countries. There will also be a time set aside for former alumni to meet and speak with President FUKUDA about what Kobe University meant for them and what they expect of it in the future.
