A unique alliance for high potential global citizens

The CEMS Master’s in International Management (CEMS MIM) builds on the goals set by the alliance’s founders, 30 years ago: Educate future generations of international business leaders and “global citizens” and prepare them to contribute to a more open, sustainable and inclusive World.

The CEMS MIM leverages on the combination of the strengths of each CEMS alliance member: Each School, each Company, each Organization, each Individual Member of the alliance gives its own contribution to turn the CEMS MIM’s experience the most rewarding Masters in Management’s experience worldwide. No other program can provide students and alumni the experience, richness and network of 31 leading Business Schools, 73 corporate Partners and 7 Social Partners working together.

The Curriculum combines transversal topics, courses, seminars and projects offered in a synchronized way by the 31 Business Schools, with a Program Offer specific to each School. By studying in at least two CEMS Schools over their CEMS MIM journey and interconnecting with other CEMS students from the whole World, all students beneficiate from the unique learning experience of confronting themselves to a diversity of people, cultures and companies.

The CEMS experience is very much valued by recruiters who see CEMS MIM students as top talent potential employees with global mindset, cross cultural business education, fluent in several languages.
