CEMS MIM Curriculum

The programme consists of two academic terms (Term 1 & Term 2) and an international internship. The two academic terms are consecutive (starting in autumn), while the internship can take place at any time during the graduate period of studies, but not overlapping with Term 1 or Term 2. Students spend one of the two academic terms in another CEMS Member School and the internship abroad.

Students can find the Aalto CEMS Programme Offer on cems.org. Registration in courses is done through study platform Sisu.

Most of the CEMS MIM studies must be completed during the MIM year, but up to 15 ECTS of CEMS studies (including elective courses and skills seminars) can be done during the previous or following academic year.
