The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business will be the first US business school to join CEMS – the Global Alliance in Management Education. Students enrolled in the CEMS Masters in Management (MIM) at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) will soon be able to apply to study at Cornell for their term abroad.
The collaboration will provide the opportunity for CEMS MIM students who wish to gain part of their business education from a US Ivy League school. The CEMS students at SSE will get the unique chance to apply to spend their term at Cornell from August 2020.
Students study the CEMS curriculum for one term at their home university, with mandatory study abroad in a different CEMS member school for the second term. In addition to a home degree, students complete a business consulting project with CEMS corporate members and complete an international internship..
It is hoped that 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.
A rising demand for the Master’s in Management
The Stockholm School of Economics has offered the CEMS MIM since 1991. CEMS is a one-year, postgraduate, pre-experience certificate delivered jointly by the CEMS global alliance of 32 academic members (leading business schools), 69 corporate partners (multinational companies) and 7 social partners (NGOs).
“Cornell is a welcome addition to our CEMS alliance, providing opportunity for reciprocal exchange of CEMS MIM students. With common values and program goals, combining Cornell and SSE during the CEMS year will provide students with an excellent basis for a truly international career”, said Ciara Sutton, CEMS Academic Director at the Stockholm School of Economics
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.”
Cornell’s strong links to the corporate world

The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business has strong links to the corporate world and huge potential through its presence in New York City. As part of its membership of CEMS, Cornell will bring on board two corporate members (global multinational companies) that will partner with CEMS.
