CBS Family & Friends e.V. is the new supporters association of the CBS International Business School, which not only connects the graduates of all campuses but also all other interested parties. Originally founded as Alumni e.V., we now want to jointly expand and strengthen the network and pursue common goals.
As a non-profit association, we bring together all interested parties, especially alumni, of the CBS. We strengthen the contact between the individual groups; whereby members of the association can profit from each other by bundling know-how and common interests. New ideas and concepts promote academic work and teaching at the CBS, for example by awarding prizes for students` academic work.
Special and exceptional talents will be encouraged, and socially weaker students will be supported in the form of scholarships. It is our goal to enable all students to develop their potential to the fullest and to pave the way for a successful professional future.
With selected events, activities and services, the association is integrated into the social, societal, and cultural activities of the university and functions as a networking and support organ within the CBS International Business School.
So, what exactly does the association do? Here you will find an overview of the most important activities:
Organisation of (alumni) events such as the annual Alumni Homecoming or the digital lecture series Alumni Breakfast
Award of scholarships and academic prizes
Organisation of academic or non-profit-making events
Support of social and charitable organisations
