CEMS is a global alliance of leading business schools, multinational companies and NGOs that together offer the CEMS Master’s in International Management (MIM). 29 of the best business schools from all over the world produce the most qualified, competent, and internationally prepared master-level graduates who then join the ranks of the extensive worldwide CEMS Alumni Community. The CEMS Master's in International Management has consistently ranked in the top 10 since the FT Global Master's in Management ranking began in 2005.
Each year CEMS organizes its Annual Events at one of its schools’ locations. During the week of the Events, meetings and discussions are held to ensure coordinationand bench-marking opportunities among the CEMS participants and to develop a unified strategy for the alliance. However, the most important event is the Graduation Ceremony where the CEMS graduands from all the participating schools officially receive their prestigious CEMS diplomas.
For the GSOM, the only Russian business school listed in the FT ranking of the best management programs, a CEMS member since 2008, it is the first time it will host such a big and important international event with more than 1000 thousand students, corporate partners, and program managers expected from 5 continents.
The Managing Director of GSOM, Mr. Krotov, on behalf of the school welcomes all of our guests and hopes they will enjoy their stay in one of the most fascinating cities in the world. Indeed, the program of the Annual Events 2015 will give then the chance to see the most beautiful places of St Petersburg and to experience the rich and enigmatic Russian culture. For instance, the most anticipated part of the agenda, the CEMS Graduation Ceremony itself, will take place at the Mariinsky Theatre, one of the cultural gems of Russia.
There is no doubt that the CEMS Annual Events 2015 will become an important milestone in the life of GSOM, CEMS, and, of course, the excited graduates who then begin the very bright future lying ahead.
