Corporate Partnerships FAQ

Account Access FAQ
  • How do I manage my cemsmail address?

    Your cemsmail address is a redirection toward the mailbox you provided when you joined the CEMS Alliance. 

    If you would like to change the redirection:

    • You can change your destination address via the CEMS Portal in the personal e-mail field.
    • Messages sent to the CEMS email address are redirected towards this email address. Any updates may take up to 1 hour to complete. Your @cemsmail.org email address is a 'forwarding address' only, which means that there is no “inbox” to check your messages. Instead, all messages sent to your @cemsmail.org address will be automatically forwarded to your chosen destination address. Your @cemsmail address is listed in "CEMS Portal >> CEMS Life"

    If you are not receiving mail, it is possible that :

    • Your mailbox hosting platform may have strong anti-spam filters, so be sure to check your spam folders and mark these messages as safe. To make sure that you do not miss CEMS MIM related mailing, you should add the following emails to your mail contacts : mailing@cems.org, mailing-mim@cems.org, mailing-cp@cems.org, mailing-cf@cems.org, mailing-ae@cems.org, cems@cems.org, welcome@cems.org, info@cems.org, studentfee@cems.org
    • A wrong address was used as the target of your cemsmail redirection. Make sure that your mail tool is aware of your cemsmail address. For instance, in Gmail, you have go to "Settings >> Accounts and import >> Send mail as"  (and you declare your cemsmail address as "not an alias")
    • If you send a mail from your gmail account to your own cemsmail address, you will not see that message in your inbox, as it is already in your gmail sent box. To to do a test, ask a friend to send you an email from a different mailbox. Also note that some mailboxes will simply not work properly with our redirection system (eg. hotmail).

    If you still have some issues after taking those information into account, make sure to provide the following information when contacting the Global Office

  • How do I change my password ?

    Step 1:  Go to https://www.cems.org/lostpassword

If the email you use has not been previously listed in your CEMS profile, then an email from the Alumni Team will be sent to confirm your identity, we will need a scan of one of the following:  
    a valid ID (i.e. passport, international identity card, etc.)

  • How do I remove my profile or CV from the CEMS CV database?

    Step 1: Log onto your CEMS Portal and select "Click here to update my CV." on this link. If you do not see "Click here to update my CV", it means that either you haven't created a CEMS CV or that you already detached it from the CEMS database.
