The CEMS Alumni of the Year is a joint campaign by the CAA in close collaboration with the CEMS Student Board, which gives the CEMS community the opportunity to learn about CEMS alumni on a monthly basis and vote for the favourite candidate as the CEMS Alumni of the Year.


Meet Anita, the July candidate for the CEMS Alumni of the Year 2017 election.

Anita graduated from Corvinus University of Budapest in 2010 with her exchange at ESADE Business School. After 6 years of corporate career, she decided to continue as a Freelance Business Consultant and coach business leaders to the right direction with her corporate background.

Anita is an incredibly engaged Alumni, who would like to give something back to the CEMS community by mentoring more students each year. She is helping them to find their most suitable personal and professional path.
