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

As of July 2012, 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 January 2011, Kobe University held its first Global-Link Forum in Bangkok to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the International Alumni Net and the second Global-Link Forum was held in Seoul, November 2011. The purpose of the Global Link Forum is to form stronger bonds with Kobe University's intellectual 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 third Global-Link Forum will be held in Beijing on 9th of September, 2012. This forum will be co-organized by the "Kobe University Alumni Association in China". This year the President of Kobe University and business representatives from Japan and China will deliver commemorative lectures on the "Fostering and development of global human resources". Special reports will also be given by researchers from Kobe University on the environment and the economics which are common issues both Japan and China face.
