CEMS - The Global Alliance in Management Education


The Global Alliance in Management Education
CEMS - The Global Alliance in Management Education (www.cems.org) is a strategic alliance of leading business schools and multinational companies that together offer postgraduate students a unique blend of education and professional experience. Its first mission is to set a global standard of excellence for pre-experience Masters in management. Founded in 1988 in Europe, the network has grown steadily, largely due to the success and popularity of the CEMS Masters in International Management (CEMS MIM). In each country only one business school is chosen to be part of the CEMS alliance. In 2006, when CEMS decided to expand globally, they selected The University of Sydney as the Australian School to become an Associate member. In June 2008, The University of Sydney was accepted as a Full member, meaning we not only provide access to the CEMS MIM for our students, but are accredited to teach the CEMS MIM program to students from other CEMS Institutions. The CEMS MIM is a prestigious supra-national business degree that can be acknowledged as the best passport for an international career. This one and a half year joint degree program is exclusively open to the Masters students of CEMS schools who meet very strict selection criteria and receive the CEMS degree in conjunction with their home degree. The Business School developed a Master of Management program that allows a cohort of high quality students to simultaneously complete the CEMS MIM by undertaking a semester at a top European University and an internship with a leading international corporation. CEMS also fosters business school cooperation for teaching, research and doctoral education. The Business School is now offering PhD units for a CEMS initiated exchange program to encourage CEMS PhD students to visit the Business School/University. The Business School is proud that Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Australia chose to join CEMS as our corporate partner.
