Business Project within the CEMS Programme:

The Business Project is a consultancy-like project. At the beginning of the semester, companies suggested eleven topics for students. International teams of usually 3 students solve a real business problem as a one-semester part-time activity tutored by both the company and a professor in parallel. Business projects reinforce the CEMS partnership between universities, students and companies. It amounts to 15 ECTS.

Students are thus offered the opportunity:

  • to gain insight into business life
  • to train their analytical and problem-solving skills
  • to apply research methods
  • to transfer theoretical knowledge into practice
  • to learn process management
  • to acquire social skills
  • to get to know potential employers and re-define their professional goals

Students are expected:

  • to take responsibility for the project
  • to strive for the best results
  • to share the workload equally within the team
  • to communicate well with their tutors

Project results are evaluated by the academic and corporate supervisors. Students write a report and give an oral presentation, both as a group.
