The biggest advantage of the CEMS alliance is definitely its extensive contact and knowledge-bank represented by the increasing number of its members. Every year more and more CEMS graduates enter the working world sharing a similar mindset but in different countries and in different industries. We pay big attention to building a network of peers, but we tend to forget about those who graduate after us.
The idea of mentorship is a way to bridge this gap and to develop the CEMS alumni network by advising students (future alumni) on their professional career planning. The SAMP (Student Alumni Mentorship Program) was launched to make sure that students get first-hand insight and guidance from CEMS Alumni about starting, building and developing a career. You may ask, but what’s in it for me?
SAMP connects Students and Alumni, in which Alumni as mentors can provide informal support and advice on studies and career choices.
