The CEMS exchange semester

The CEMS exchange semester

All students in the IM/CEMS programme complete one semester at one of the CEMS partner schools.

During the application process, applicants are asked to indicate their top 12 preference of the CEMS partner school(s) they would like to attend for exchange. The listing is done when filling in the Online Application Form (OLAF). When receiving an offer of admission for the IM/CEMS programme, you will also be informed of the exchange destination and semester you have been allocated. 

Exchange slots per school, however, are limited. This means that students applying for popular destinations may not be selected for their first choice, but instead for their second, third, or other preferred school. Applicants with higher grades, better assessment and interview results will have better chances for selection for their preferred destination. Therefore a specific exchange destination should not be your main reason for choosing the IM/CEMS programme.

In addition, the following guidelines will be followed:

  • It's preferred that external (non-RSM) applicants spend the fall semester at RSM, to allow these students to experience student life at RSM and in Rotterdam first, prior to going on exchange. 

  • Exchange is  not possible to the applicants country of origin or the country of undergraduate studies/bachelor programme. 
  • It is not possible to change or negotiate your exchange destinations after the selection.

Information on the CEMS partner schools can be found on www.cems.org.
