The 31st CEMS Annual Events
Welcome to Vienna!
The 31st CEMS Annual Events were a great success for WU. Professor Günter Stahl received his sixth CEMS Course of the Year Award (category: Global Management Practice) this year, and Phillip Nell, who has already received three awards, came in second this year for the CEMS Course of the Year Award in the category Global Strategic Management. Professor Clive Spash and WU researcher Viviana Asara were presented with the CEMS Outstanding Contribution Award for their interactive course on climate change. WU came in second in this year’s race for the title of CEMS School of the Year. WU won this title in 2015.
CEMS, the Global Alliance in Management Education (previously known as the Community of European Management Schools and International Companies), is an association of leading business schools and multinational companies. Founded in 1988, the CEMS network currently includes 32 international universities, 7 Social Partners (NGOs), and 70 Corporate Partners.
The global CEMS network spans from Sydney to Barcelona to Beijing. Over 15,000 CEMS alumni from 80 different nations are currently employed in 75 countries around the world.
The CEMS flagship Master in International Management/CEMS (MIM) program teaches management skills in an international context. Since 2008, it has been available in Austria exclusively at WU and offers a top-quality education. WU’s CEMS MIM program appears regularly among the top ten in international rankings. WU is one of the leading schools within the CEMS network and has received numerous awards for its teaching and administration. The 80 students admitted to the coveted double degree program at WU each year are awarded two titles after graduation: the CEMS MIM and a WU master’s degree (MSc).
