Two options for completing the international CEMS MIM studies
In autumn 2016, The School of Business launched the new Global Management Master's Programme the second year of which is made up of the CEMS MIM studies. Also students from elsewhere than the School of Business can apply for this programme.
Previously, CEMS studies have been offered as a year-long 66 credit entity the so-called Crown model, which Aalto students have been able to complete in addition to their master's programme. According a new decision, the Crown model CEMS MIM programme will also continue.
Crown model inspires Aalto students
Students who are already enrolled in an Aalto University master's programme can apply for the Crown CEMS MIM Programme (66 ECTS), which they will complete at the same time as their master's programme. The one condition is that they must have completed 60 credits in business administration and economics studies.
'In line with Aalto's strategy, which encourages a multidisciplinary approach, we has decided that in addition to the Global Management/ CEMS Programme, we will continue to offer the CEMS Crown model,' explains Vice Dean Kristiina Mäkelä, who is responsible for education. 'We have been a so-called CEMS university for nearly 20 years, and I believe that the possibility of completing CEMS Crown will attract Bachelor's students to the School of Business.'
'The Crown CEMS MIM has been very popular among Aalto students. Previous CEMS students have been enthusiastic about sharing their study experiences, the close corporate cooperation and varied social activities with other students and have encouraged them to apply for Crown. It is wonderful that there are now two different options available for completing the CEMS MIM Programme,' says Rita Järventie-Thesleff Academic Director of the CEMS Programme.
Global Management /CEMS Master's Programme was launched last year
'Students from all over the world applied for the first Global Management/CEMS Master's Programme. The student admissions process is still incomplete, but applicants have demonstrated a great deal of knowledge on Finland, Aalto as well as the new programme,' says a pleased Ms Järventie-Thesleff.
In 2015, the CEMS MIM programme came in fourth in a global study by the Financial Times ranking Master's Degrees in management.
Application for CEMS MIM models will begin again in autumn 2017.
The Aalto University School of Business is a member of CEMS, the Global Alliance in Management Education, an alliance of the world’s leading business schools and large corporations.
