Nordic Forum


The Nordic Forum is hosted on a rotating basis by the Scandinavian CEMS member schools. This year's Nordic Forum will be hosted in the exciting city of Helsinki. The Nordic Forum bridges the gap between students and the corporate world through company presentations and skill seminars, and also offers students the chance to enhance their network.

Nordic Forum 2014 will take place on 24-26 April 2014, with a kick-off event scheduled for the evening of 23 April.  Around 90 selected CEMS students, primarily from the four Scandinavian CEMS schools, will get the excellent opportunity to improve their business skills in Helsinki during three diversified days. In addition, students will get the chance to network with company representatives and future leaders during the different social activities.

This year’s forum is dedicated to the topic of "Competitive Edge through Differentiation", with academic activities focusing on educating and equipping future global leaders for the competitive business world. Managers are in a key role for developing groundbreaking differentiation strategies that create a unique positioning for the firm. We want to invite all of you to join us for the discussion and experience the wonderful city of Helsinki.
