The elements of the CEMS MIM
The CEMS MIM is a two semester programme that includes:
A mandatory semester abroad at a CEMS school:
You get the opportunity to study at least one of the two CEMS MIM semesters abroad at one of our CEMS partner universities.
2 mandatory courses: one in Strategy (7.5 ECTS) and one in Cross-Cultural Management (7.5 ECTS)
CEMS elective courses (30 ECTS):
At CBS, you can choose between approximately 20 CEMS electives each semester. During your semester abroad, the electives on offer will depend on the CEMS partner university you attend.
A Business Project (15 ECTS):
The business project is a ‘real-life’ consulting problem for one of our corporate partners that you will solve in a multicultural team.
A Block Seminar (3 ECTS):
You will complete an intense 1-week block seminar at the beginning of your CEMS year. You can choose between various seminars at various partner universities with different topics.
Skill Seminars (2 ECTS):
Skill seminars focus on soft skills within areas such as leadership, presentation and communication techniques, business coaching and negotiation. The skill seminars run every semester and they are usually intense, practice-oriented seminars in small groups of maximum 20 students.
Minimum 10 week international internship:
An international internship of minimum 10 weeks will be instrumental in converting your theoretical knowledge into practical experience and skills.
Testing of your second foreign language:
For your second foreign language you will need to pass a language test ensuring the ability to live and work in different cultures and business environments.
The programme is flexible in relation to course selection as CEMS MIM offers you a range of electives in a number of different areas. This gives you the opportunity to shape your own individual profile in combination with your CBS Master’s degree. Jointly, the different elements of the programme develop your academic knowledge, your soft skills and your practical experience.
The CEMS Master’s in International Management is a two semester programme which you study in combination with your MSc degree from CBS. The CEMS Master takes place in the second year of your studies in your third and fourth semester.
A distinguishing factor of the programme is that it brings together all stakeholders (schools, companies, students and alumni). Also it is the most international management programme on the market. Furthermore, CEMS in itself is an addition to your CBS degree.
