Alumni Interviews

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.
