All students who complete their MIM year and fulfill all or most programme components (so they expect to graduate from CEMS MIM in the given year) must inform their local programme manager in advance in July. Those who have still some components to complete (like language test, final exam-thesis, internship abroad) should also do so.
Based on information placed in CEMS data base, the manager prepares a draft certificate that is sent to CEMS Head Office for verification. Deadline for submitting draft certificates is 29 September 2017.
THAT IS WHY ALL STUDENTS ARE REQUESTED TO SUBMIT ALL DOCUMENTS AND THEIR DECLARATION TO GRADUATE THIS YEAR BY 21 SEPTEMBER 2017 ! HOWEVER, WE WILL NEED YOUR INITIAL DECLARATION TO BE SUBMITTED BY 31 AUGUST 2017 TO ESTIMATE THE TOTAL NUMBER OF GRADUANTS!
In case you are just expecting thesis defence, or you are in progress of internship or just took language tests and await results, please do the same except the fact that you will submit documents (statement on your successful defense or internship evaluation form in original) immediately after completing the given component. The results of language tests will be sent to me anyway. If everything is fine, I will notify you that you can graduate. Others will have to cancel their registration for Graduation Ceremony and Dinner.
In order to graduate same year, all programme components, should be completed by the end of October (with exception of SGH graduation date that should be no later than 10 November 2017) . An internship must begin no later than on first Monday of September (4 September 2017) and a finishing (as stated on the evaluation form), cannot be later than 10 November 2017.
If everything is fine (the final exam is passed, language test results are positive, the internship evaluation reaches our office), student may confirm his/her participation in the Annual Events and get a scanned diploma (to avoid missing it during the events) during CEMS Gradation Ceremony.
Deadline for registration of graduants to Annual Events is 10 November 2017 (end of the day) !!! . NO LATE REGISTRATIONS ACCEPTED!!!
Certificates are issued just before graduation, but the originals are sent to the Programme Managers usually just before Christmas. Once they reach the office, all graduates may contact local programme manager and visit his/her office to pick up the original diploma and the certificate.
Registration for Annual Events is conducted via CEMS Website
and usually starts in May or June.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE ON GRADUATION ELIGIBILITY
You have to graduate within 18 months after completing your CEMS MIM year. In order to extend it, you have to contact CEMS Programme Manager
and submit request with justification (postponed graduation at home school, internship on the way, force majeure, etc.).
However, you can't prolong it for ages. Actually, you have to graduate from CEMS within 4 years after completing your CEMS MIM year. For example, all students of class 2011/2012, who will not graduate in 2017 will be DELETED from the programme! In case of 2015/2016 and earlier classes (depending on your SGH graduation year) it may require to ask for extending their CEMS student status to the CEMS Graduation Committee via the local Programme Manager.
