​CEMS MIM is a joint, one-year Master’s Programme in International Management offered exclusively to graduate students of CEMS member schools, since the degree itself is integrated with the last year of Master’s studies at each, local university.
The current structure of the programme reflects its unique selling point which, among others, is the “bridge” between theory and practice.

  • Block Seminar (3 ECTS – in Term 1) and Responsible Global Leadership Seminar (1 ECTS - in Term 2) at the beginning of each semester of studies.
  • CEMS Courses (45 ECTS) and Research Projects (optional, to replace up to 7.5 ECTS in courses)
  • Business project (15 ECTS) in Term 2 
  • Skill seminars (at least 4 days for 2 ECTS in total) including mandatory 2-day Skill Seminar on Business Communication in English in Term 1
  • International Internship (at least 8 weeks*, but suggested period is 10 weeks) or at home in international company for those who spend both CEMS terms abroad (Tri-National Track)
