About the CEMS Events
Is there a dress code?
Graduation ceremony and activities: Smart Formal - tuxedo, national costume, or a formal dark suit and tie/long dress, smart suit, or a formal cocktail-length dress. For other attendees there is no formal dress code, although elegance is preferred.
Other events: You are advised to wear what is appropriate for the event you are attending. For example, business attire at formal meetings and events.
Who can attend the CEMS annual events?
Everyone in the CEMS Community can attend the CEMS Annual Events.
Meetings: Several governance meetings are opened only to respective stakeholders (Executive Board, Alumni Association Board and Local Committees, Communication Directors, Program Managers, LBCG and MCB Committees, Student Board).
Graduation Ceremony: The Graduation Ceremony is on a first registered, first seated basis for graduates and their guests and for the academic community.
Why is the graduation dinner less expensive for the graduates, than for the guests?
We would like to keep the cost down for the graduands.
I would like to attend the graduation dinner, but not the following graduation party. Can I receive a reduced price?
The party is part of the dinner, so it's not possible to deduct cost if you (or your guests) don’t wish to attend the party. As the events lead from one into another, it would be too tricky logistically to divide the guests after the dinner.
What is included in the Graduation Ceremony, Dinner and Party?
The CEMS MIM Graduation is a very special moment for CEMS MIM Graduands and their guests. The ceremony will include inspirational speeches and entertainment – and most importantly, the moments where the graduands receive their diploma.
After the ceremony, graduates and guests will meet and greet over a drink, followed by a dinner and the party.
The size of the event requires a special venue and organization, and the cost for the hosting academic member is enormous. Guests at the Graduation ceremony and evening activities participate to this organization with a small fee. Therefore, the cost of the dinner does not only include food and drinks, but a participative contribution to the overall organization. The entrance fee to the party does not include drinks.
