From its start, CEFAM has relied on extensive corporate and alumni networks throughout the 5 continents. The CEFAM CONNECT network has been built with companies who recognize the value of exceptional educational programs. Thousands of internationally oriented companies have joined our network, and our graduates are of course at the heart of our corporate connections. Their “success stories” make them our best ambassadors.
“CEFAM’s academic approach is greatly appreciated by the companies who offer our students professional opportunities.
Companies are impressed by our students’ open-minded attitude, their adaptability, and their determination. In short, they are venturesome and, as a result, often selected by companies to develop subsidiaries abroad. A corporate culture reinforced by long-term internships.”

The CEFAM program includes periods for corporate internships that allow students practical opportunities to apply what they have learned in the classroom. By welcoming a CEFAM student, whatever his/her educational level, to your company, you are taking on a motivated, internationally minded student who has a solid background in management, finance, marketing, and sales. Our MBA students will quickly become qualified and totally operational members of your team.
To further develop our corporate network, CEFAM organizes an annual international networking event with in conjunction with the State of Pennsylvania, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, French Foreign Trade Advisors (CCE), ERAI, HSBC, Classe Export, the American Chamber of Commerce, Thomas Willis, and OnlyLyon. This event targets professionals from the Rhone-Alpes region who are “players” on an international scale.
For the past 5 years, the evening has provided an opportunity for professionals to develop their network in particular through a “Speed Business Meeting”. Past editions have been extremely successful with over 100 participants: everyone seems to appreciate the concept of an informal event, with no particular agenda other than developing their network in a relaxed atmosphere - the American way!
