Established in December 1988 by four leading European schools (ESADE, HEC Paris, Università Bocconi and the University of Cologne), the CEMS Alliance designed the first truly European business education through one single
master's degree. At a time when the Berlin Wall still stood, and the
majority of business was conducted at a national level, the CEMS
programme allowed students to travel between member schools and
countries for their studies, equipping them with the necessary skills
to succeed in the international markets of the future.
Today, CEMS is a global alliance comprising 28 of the world's most prestigious business schools, over 60 multinational employers, and 4 non-profit organisations. Its Master's in International Management programme has consistently
ranked in the top 10 of the Financial Times for the past 8 years, and
its graduates have gone on to work for a wide range of companies
including McKinsey, Google, P&G and L'Oréal.
This year's incoming class is CEMS' largest and most diverse to date, made up of over 1,000 students from 67 different nationalities. Roland Siegers, Executive Director of the CEMS programme believes its popularity is
due to its global presence. "It's the only educational programme in the
world in which there is no "home" or dominating cultural environment,
meaning that once you become a part of it, the world becomes your
home," he says.
Marking their 25-year anniversary, ESADE will host a three-day event
that will bring together 2,500 members of the CEMS Alliance. Included
in the celebrations will be the addition of Chile's leading business
school, the Universidad Adolfo Inbañez, to the programme and the graduation of a record number of CEMS MIM
students. The event will take place at ESADE in Barcelona, where the
CEMS Alliance was established.
