CEMS Alumni President Wanted

We are now looking for the new President of the CEMS Alumni Association Prague. We are also looking for individuals willing to organize a single event on a chosen topic. For more information contact former president Pavlína Šimurdová (simurdovaPavlina@seznam.cz) or CEMS VŠE Office Manager Šárka Otčenášková (sarka.otcenaskova@vse.cz).

 

Mentoring

The latest CEMS VSE mentoring program was introduced during the virtual CEMS alumni soirée on October 15, 2020. Mentoring between current students/fresh graduates (2019–2020) and alumni (graduation 1998–2018) can be a great opportunity to enhance the learning experience for both sides and keep our CEMS community active.

If you want to take part in the mentoring program as a mentor (graduates 1998–2018), please fill out the following questionnaire by November 15, 2020.

If you want to take part in the mentoring program as a mentee (graduates 2020 and 2019), please fill out the following questionnaire by November 15, 2020.

This will help us greatly to set up a meeting between mentees and mentors planned for November/December.

 

Startups

A lot of our alumni own/work for a startup or is interested in this topic, hence startups can be an area within which various activities for alumni can be devised.

 

CEMS Talks and Other Networking Events

Possible activities:

  • CEMS Talks – alumni (usually 3) speak on a specific topic; suggested ideas during soirée:
      • How Coronavirus has positively impacted my life
      • CEMSies involved in politics & public life
      • Startups
  • Networking Dinners
  • Family Events
  • Sport Events
  • Blog – Activities in the Past (created by former alumni President 2017 – 2019 Pavlína Tesch (Šimurdová) and former alumni Vice-president 2017 – 2019 and President 2011 – 2013 Vojtěch Opleštil)

Out of a wide range of activities, CEMS Talk seems to be the key event that can be easily switched to an online setting.

Apart from CEMS Talk, CEMS Networking Dinner and Family events are the most popular alumni event concepts. Due to current Covid restrictions, face to face gatherings is not an option at the moment. Yet, there is plenty of virtual space to host networking events online.

In case you are willing to organize/co-organize an event related to any of the aforementioned fields, do not hesitate to contact Šárka Otčenášková (sarka.otcenaskova@vse.cz).
