CEMS Alumni Association
The CEMS Alumni Association (CAA) is a crucial pillar of the CEMS Community and has grown to be a network of close to 9,000 members, a number that is growing at an accelerated rate as more and more students graduate from one of the world's top Master's in Management programmes.
Founded in 1993, the CEMS Alumni Association (or 'CAA') is a strong social network but also an increasingly valuable professional platform. It enables CEMS graduates to continue to enjoy the international and multicultural experience that they will have experienced as CEMS students. It also organises various professional events, in the form of panel discussions, workshops, conferences and seminars, for sharing ideas and knowledge. Membership of the CAA and attendance of alumni-run events enable CEMS alumni to broaden their professional knowledge but also their professional network. Since its creation, the CAA has pursued three main goals:
- Creating and maintaining friendly, lasting contacts among CEMS alumni
- Providing a professional network and opportunities for its members
- Promoting the CEMS MIM and the CEMS experience generally
Organised on a multi-country basis, the CAA is led by the CAA Board and is present in each country through Local Committees driven by active CEMS alumni. For more information, please take a look at the website of the CEMS Alumni Association.
