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 in which to share 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 (LCs) driven by active CEMS Alumni.
The CAA Board comprises eleven members who are elected every three years during the CEMS Annual Events by the Local Committees. The CAA Board represents alumni interests on the CEMS Executive Board and supports the development of the CEMS MIM.
