Skill Seminars

Skill Seminars are training seminars in practical skills. They are essential to kick-starting an effective professional career and fundamental to adjusting easily to an international management environment. Topics include:

  • Personal Development
  • Intercultural skills
  • Project Management
  • Group work abilities
  • International negotiation techniques
  • Presentation skills
  • CV building and Job Application preparation
  • Business Communication (BCSSparticipation is mandatory)

Small groups ensure an interactive dimension. Skill Seminars are offered by the CEMS member schools, very often in close cooperation with companies. 

Students have to attend four Skill Seminar days in total (2 ECTS) (1 day = 8 hours = 0.5 ECTS), of which at least two days must be in "Business Communication".

Company training sessions or other practical external seminars can substitute CEMS Skill Seminars if validated by the home Academic Director.
