CEMS business schools and universities available to a select group of students at the member institutions. In addition to completing one’s home degree, graduation from CEMS also requires successful completion of a business project, the management of the institution pre-school education seminars, an international internship, and 2 foreign language exams.
Every CEMS academic member has a limited number of places available for the CEMS MIM intake, therefore, the selection process is challenging and in many cases, schools may have pre-requisites to be admitted into the selection process, including a high grade average and proof of language skills. The selection process differs slightly among the academic members, but often it is required to already be enrolled or selected for a Master of Business degree with a member university prior to applying for the CEMS MIM. All of the CEMS graduates receive both a degree from their home institution as well as from CEMS, thus the CEMS MIM is often referred to as a “dual-degree”. CEMS currently totals 76 Corporate Partners which contribute financially on an annual basis and provide the programme with human resources and input into the curriculum itself. This means that they chart skills courses, give lectures or invite CEMS students to company activities where students learn about certain corporate practices or solve cases. The first ever CEMS Social Partners joined the organisation in December 2010.
This new initiative is part of a major sustainability drive from within CEMS. Founded in 1993 by CEMS graduates, the association is an international network throughout the world of CEMS graduates. To date, nearly 13,000 CEMS students have graduated and gone on to become CEMS alumni. The LCs are responsible for keeping in contact with CEMS alumni and organizing professional and social activities. They meet on a regular basis to discuss the activities and development of the association.
The alumni board’s mission is to foster the CEMS alumni community by proposing and developing initiatives that reflect CAA objectives and foster career and personal development opportunities of its alumni members. The alumni board also represents alumni interests on the CEMS Executive Board and supports development of the CEMS alliance. In addition, the CEMS Alumni Association supports alumni to positively influence management education, business, global governance and society. The Rise And Rise Of The Masters In Management”.
