For Alumni

CEMS Alumni Association

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 organizes 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 contact person is Melissa Morelet-Weaver (

CEMS Alumni Soirée

Every two years, CEMS office at VŠE organizes CEMS Alumni Soirée – have a look at the photos of 2017.

In April 2018, VŠE celebrated 20 Years of CEMS at VŠE – more information here. At this occasion, another CEMS Alumni Soirée took place at VŠE. See the photo gallery from the event.

On October 15, 2020, for the very first time, CEMS Alumni Soirée took place online (due to the epidemiological situation it was postponed from the original date which was June 18, 2020). See a throwback to the online soirée here.

On June 2, 2022, after an online hiatus due to the Covid pandemic, another CEMS Alumni Soirée was organized at the Akademický Klub Restaurant (3rd floor of Italska building, VSE). For a throwback full of good food, mingling and entertainment, please go to the photo gallery.
