Partnerships

EMA represents a community of ambitious, highly educated, and multilingual students and alumni of Erasmus Mundus Joint Programmes, financed by the European Commission. These are highly competitive and prestigious programmes that cover various fields of studies and are run by consortiums of European Universities. Students are exposed to the different cultures of their peers and two or more European countries in which they study. 

EMA is glad to be partnering with a number of different stakeholders. 

Who we are

EMA members are nationals of more than 170 countries, often with previous work experience, thus representing established professionals, who now work and live all over the world. They are mobile and adjustable individuals who are well-versed in multi-cultural interaction, highly educated, engaged in innovative activities across all sectors and passionate about international relations, higher education.

EMJMD Course Partnerships

EMA partners with EMJMD courses to give each other mutual support and spread the word and advantages of EMA amongst EMJMD students, while at the same time supporting EMJMDs to become well known and attract top applicants.

 

EMA offers EMJMDs to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with EMA, to establish an official agreement between EMA and an EMJMD program, giving access to additional resources such as using EMA’s Social Media and website for promotion and so on. Some examples of the mutual benefits are: 
 

  • The EMJMD can be promoted on EMA’s social media channels and website, including a backlink to the programs website.

  • EMA provide a presentation and Q&A session about the Erasmus Mundus Association for students e.g. at the  start of the programme (usually offered in the first semester of a new cohort).

  • Ensuring that EMA’s monthly newsletter reaches current students or alumni of the partnering EMJMD.

  • Nomination/Selection of a Program Representative (PR).

 

Current EMA-EMJMD partnerships can be found below.

Corporate Partnerships

We are seeking partners that could financially support EMA (ie. projects, events, initiatives), increase our name recognition and create values that could be utilized by our members and followerbase. Through EMA's website, newsletter and social media channels, your brand/ activity can tap into a network of diverse, international, highly-educated youths that thrive for excellence. EMA follows a case-by-case approach in developing partnerships, thus we always welcome your unique ideas.
