 CEMS Master's in International Management (MIM)

CEMS, The Global Alliance in Management Education, is a strategic alliance of leading business schools and multinational companies. Currently, 31 world-class academic institutions collaborate together with over 80 corporate and social partners to offer international, postgraduate students a unique blend of high quality education and professional experience. The curriculum has been jointly designed by the CEMS Schools and CEMS Corporate and Social Partners.

Over the years, CEMS Master’s in International Management (MIM) has been consistently ranked among the top Master’s in Management programs in the world by the Financial Times. Aalto University School of Business is the only member of this prestigious alliance in Finland.

CEMS MIM is a one-year program that consist of specific CEMS courses, seminars, a semester-long Business Project, workshops in career related skills, languages, an exchange semester at another CEMS University, and an international internship. In addition, CEMS is a lifelong network of over 13 000 Alumni, Companies, NGOs and Universities offering a lot of career and social opportunities even after graduation.

Since 1998 qualified Aalto University students have had the opportunity to enroll in the CEMS Master's in Management (MIM) program in parallel to their MSc degree at the School of Business or other Aalto Schools. The School of Business students include the CEMS MIM term abroad in their MSc curriculum as the International Study Module minor. It is often possible to use other CEMS elements simultaneously also towards the 'home' MSc. After successful completion of the requirements of both programmes, students will graduate with two diplomas - MSc from Aalto and CEMS MIM.

In addition to the above described (1) one year CEMS MIM (66 ECTS) to be completed in parallel with regular Aalto MSc studies, CEMS MIM at Aalto is also tied to the (2) Global Management  Master's Programme (120 ECTS) at Aalto University School of Business.
