CEMS Annual Events and MIM Graduation Ceremony 2022

November 30 - December 3, 2022


Dear CEMS friends, colleagues, and graduates,

On behalf of the AUC School of Business, I welcome you to the 32nd CEMS Annual Events in Egypt from November 30 to December 2, 2022. It is a great honor to have the opportunity to organize the annual CEMS conference with its range of social and networking events and its long-anticipated graduation ceremony for the upcoming 2021-2022 CEMS graduates at the iconic Pyramids of Giza.

As an education pioneer and regional leader, AUC School of Business officially ratified and joined the CEMS Global Alliance in Management Education in November 2017. We are proud to be the first business school from the Arab region and the African continent to join the CEMS network. In 2019, the school welcomed its first CEMS MIM cohort, and today, 16 students have graduated from the first two cohorts, with the third cohort graduating this year.

The CEMS program, with its unique mix of global exposure, rigorous syllabus, and powerful combination of theoretical knowledge and experiential learning, is a perfect fit with the school’s goals and aspirations in developing truly global responsible citizens.

I am sure your CEMS journey has been both enriching and informative. Your graduation is the occasion to celebrate this achievement while charting a path to a bright and fulfilling future. We are excited to partake in your celebration of the next chapter in your life here in Egypt, the land where majestic history and rich civilization converge with modern life.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our campus and our vibrant country with its bustling life, sound, beauty, and excitement!

Egypt - an enigmatic land with a glorious past and vibrant present.

Home to half of the world’s colossal antiquities, the cradle of civilization has contributed significantly to the present-day transformation of humanity; rekindling the world’s appreciation for writing, astronomy, art, and architecture.

From Talaat Harb's legendary Studio Misr founded in the 30’s to rival Hollywood’s studios, to the inspirational literature of Noble Artis Naguib Mahfouz, Egypt’s contemporary history continues to follow in the footsteps of its ancestors, acting as a strong regional force, as well as an active brain on the world stage to impact everything from art and culture to education and development.
