Master of Management (CEMS) / CEMS Masters in International Management

CEMS Masters in International Management (CEMS MIM)

Students undertake the CEMS Masters in International Management in the second and third semester of the Master of Management (CEMS) program.

Exchange allocation

Students are assigned an admission ranking as part of the Master or Management (CEMS) selection process. This ranking is basis on the following:

  • Intellectual Potential & Knowledge (formal education, ability to analyse, learn/reflect, prior knowledge in the business field)
  • Attitude & Soft Skills (Desire to achieve, Interpersonal competences, Integrity, Critical Thinking, Motivation for the MIM Programme)
  • International orientation (curiosity for differences, sensitivity & adaptability, spirit of facing challenges, international openness)

Students indicate their preference for all 28 CEMS universities prior to commencing the program. Students are then allocated on the basis of their admission ranking and their preferences.

Places at CEMS Universities are limited to generally one slot per year (although extra slots are occasionally available for the most popular exchange Universities).

The medium of instruction at all CEMS Universities is English. The languages you declare as CEMS languages have no bearing on your final allocation.

You will be advised of your CEMS Universities allocation by the third week of your first semester in the Master of Management (CEMS) program.

All CEMS Universities allocations are final and non-negotiable.
