Business Project within the CEMS Programme

The Business Project is a consultancy-like project. international teams of 3-4 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.

How are Student Teams Created?

At the beginning of the term (usually during the first half of February) students get a list of topics and project details via e-mail. At the beginning of the term they are required to attend a session where corporate representatives present the project topics. Students have possibility to find out more about all topics and they get answers to their questions. After the presentation, student give preferences to topics. Based on personal preferences, the teams of 3-4 students are created.

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.
