ACADEMICS

  • Jenny (Spring 2016): High quality & interesting 

  • Jonathan (Fall 2009): In 2008 we were part of the MBA programme, so fellow students often had extensive professional experience. Top class academics and leaders in their field.

CEMS Life

  • Jenny (Spring 2016): CEMS Bubble all the way, difficult to get to know Singaporeans

  • Jonathan (Fall 2009): Not a large community as CEMS is rather Europe centric.

HOUSing

  • Jenny (Spring 2016): A bit difficult to organize, some had to share a room

  • Jonathan (Fall 2009): Hard to find and expensive if you want to go downtown. Student housing provided a bit outside of downtown. I recommend to organise a flat share with with fellow students. Back then, living expenses were approx Eur 1200 / month, largely driven by housing expenses.

PRIce of one beer

  • Jenny (Spring 2016): Expensive (apart from the food in the food courts), one beer costs like 18 SGD. On Wednesday, ladies drink for free (yes really..)

testimonies

Jonathan (Fall 2009)

Outstanding academics and work-life balance with exotic trips. Less networking with wider CEMS community. Would fully recommend as long as can be afforded.

Jenny (Spring 2016)

Amazing experience (if you have some money)
