[eNews] Cornell Becomes New CEMS Academic Partner

The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business will become the first US academic member of CEMS – the Global Alliance in Management Education, of which the HKUST Business School is a member. The collaboration will provide the opportunity for the CEMS students who wish to gain part of their business education from a US Ivy League school.

Beginning in the 2020-2021 academic year, students from the HKUST MIMT program may apply for an exchange semester at Cornell. Reciprocally, Cornell students may elect to pursue a designation in a CEMS member school, including the HKUST Business School.

On top of academic exchanges, Cornell will bring on board two global multinational companies as CEMS corporate partners. The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business has strong links to the corporate world and huge potential through its presence in New York City. The collaboration will open up wide opportunities for mutual learning, a better understanding of the US market and culture and the unique chance to engage with US corporate members who have an interest in hiring and developing talent.  

Roland Siegers, Executive Director of CEMS, said: “We are delighted to welcome Cornell SC Johnson College of Business as our first and currently only academic member in the US. The SC Johnson College is a fantastic institution, deeply aligned with the values of CEMS – to prepare responsible leaders for a more open, sustainable and inclusive world.”

CEMS has been expanding ambitiously since its inception in 1988. The previous addition of the American University of Cairo in Egypt has expanded CEMS’ coverage globally into all continents. In North America, the current addition of Cornell with the existing Ivey Business School in Canada has further enhanced the CEMS network in one of the most influential continents in the business world.
