CEMS PROGRAMME DEVELOPMENT
To keep a high standard of teaching, CEMS constantly develops its Programme offer. The Curriculum offer, including social and networking events, is subject to an accreditation by the CEMS Academic Committee. In addition, all programme elements are subject to a constant quality evaluation process by Quality Assurance Committee (based on student evaluations) and periodical (every fourt/fifth year) peer review visits at all member schools.
THE CEMS STUDENT BOARD
Each CEMS institution is represented by a student elected on the Student Board (SB) being a driver of the international student community.
CEMS Clubs have been set up at most institutions to:
- Drive the international student community,
- Enhance CEMS’ reputation,
- Strengthen the international network between students,
- Foster strong relationship with alumni,
- Foster strong relationship with corporate partners,
- Foster innovative and progressive ideas to help CEMS grow,
- Create exciting opportunities for all the parties.
- The Student Board closely cooperates with the CEMS Head Office, the Executive Board and the Alumni Association.
The CEMS Alumni Association is the continuation of CEMS graduates’ multicultural experience. The Association is unique in that it is a truly international network whose members maintain lasting contact with each other, whilst living and working throughout the world. Since its creation, the Association has pursued its three goals:
- Promote the CEMS Master’s degree,
- Create and maintain friendly, lasting contacts among Alumni,
- Provide a professional network and opportunities for its members.
Alumni Members are organised worldwide. A Local Committee is the driving force at the local level. The Local Committees (LC) meet on a regular basis to discuss the activities and developments of the Association.
The Executive Committee’s mission is to foster the Alumni community by proposing and developing initiatives which reflect the Alumni ‘s objectives. The Executive Committee also represents the Alumni interests on the CEMS Executive Board and supports the CEMS Master’s Degree development.
