Sharing Information on Progress (2018)


Period Covered: May 2016 to May 2018

Since its foundation, CEMS has upheld the principle of educating global, responsible leaders and today’s economic, political and social understanding is that business leaders play a decisive role in world transformation. This has become a primary purpose of the CEMS Alliance. In its Vision 2025, CEMS is committed to preparing responsible leaders for a more open, multicultural, and sustainable world.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Already achieved :
- social and environmental sustainability as core topics of most block seminars. Block seminars are a one-week intensive course on an interdisciplinary topic.

- invitation of social partners (NGO’s) to our annual events
- sustainability/ business ethics offered as course elective in the CEMS programme at most member universities.
- integrity as one of the student selection criteria at the entry of the programme at all member universities.

- business projects and internships with NGO’s.
