Founded in 1993, the CEMS Alumni Association (or “CAA”) is a strong social network but also an increasingly valuable professional platform. It enables CEMS graduates to continue to enjoy the international and multicultural experience that they will have experienced as CEMS students. It also organises various professional events in the form of panel discussions, workshops, conferences and seminars in which to share ideas and knowledge. Membership of the CAA and attendance of alumni-run events enable CEMS alumni to broaden their professional knowledge but also their professional network. The President is Mrs. Wieteke Dupain (wieteke.dupain[at]cems.org).
The President of CEMS Alumni Association Prague is alumna Pavlína Šimurdová, Vice-President is Vojtěch Opleštil and a Treasurer is Jan Horáček. In case of interest contact Pavlína Šimurdová at cemsalumni[at]seznam.cz. You can also join the Facebook group Official CEMS Group Czech Republic to be informed about the upcoming events.
