If you have an excellent level of English language (C1), try to apply. CEMS is truly great programme. What makes the program so special? The mandatory part of the CEMS curriculum is one term abroad at some of the 29 CEMS partner universities – only one best business school of each country can be a CEMS school. Furthermore you will be constantly in contact with the companies like Plzeňský Prazdroj, Škoda Auto, Google, L’Oréal, Unibail-Rodamco, A.T. Kearney, Hilti, Vodafone, Indesit and many more. The cooperation with CEMS corporate partners is also a mandatory part of the curriculum. Hence, 95% of CEMS alumni were employed within 3 months of graduation. Some CEMSies find a job also during the CEMS Career Forum which is the 2-day event where companies hire only CEMSies. The CEMS Programme has many other benefits that students would know after becoming a CEMS student, e.g. they notice striking personal development during the studies.
