CEMS is much more than an academic programme. When you join CEMS, you become part of a community of academic institutions, corporate visionaries, NGOs, and business leaders who seek to raise our collective global consciousness and create greater value for all through a meaningful collaboration. No other member of CEMS showcases the results of these efforts more than CEMS alumni. There’s huge power in being part of a global network and we are proud to share with you our shining stars.

"If you have an idea, I recommend starting early. Take advantage of the fact that you are surrounded by smart people, interesting teachers. You can use the knowledge you learn from class to put it in your business."

" If you do something that no one else is doing, this really makes you stand out and might open doors that you would not have access to on a more traditional path"

"I do not know how to measure how much CEMS has contributed to my career, but I can attest that CEMS has, without a doubt, molded my personal and professional life. It has given me a world-class and inter-disciplinary relevant education with plenty of opportunities to not just travel but also live abroad, work experience with exciting companies and products and most importantly, compatible and like-minded friends for life."

Most importantly, don't be afraid of creating your own path. Before last year, I never had a job that had an application process. The “once-in-a-lifetime” jobs likely will be created specifically for you – ask for them. If you have a passion that is out of the traditional path, follow it, do the unobvious! Change the world!

Graduation is a milestone, but there are still many more to come on your way to becoming the leader you aspire to be.
Class of 2011, University of St.Gallen
The Student Board was formed and developed by those with a true entrepreneurial spirit and this spirit has continued for many years as well as creating a very special bond between those who have been a part of it. I'm still in contact with most of them. We came together to implement change in a positive way to revolutionise CEMS. It was a lot of fun and in the end, we changed a lot. We are very proud of what we achieved and it is wonderful to see how far the Student Board has come since those early days.
