Why are extra languages required for IM/CEMS?

In a multicultural world, speaking several languages is an important asset. It increases the attractiveness of graduates to employers as it demonstrates their international orientation and mindset and enhances their cultural awareness. It also makes the CEMS programme and CEMS graduates distinctive from other international masters. Both CEMS and RSM therefore welcome efforts by students to improve their language skills during their master programme, even if their language skills are already at the minimum required level.

Why do I need to prove my native language when applying for IM/CEMS?

The language that people consider as their native language or mother tongue can be spoken at different levels. When you are born and educated in a country where you also speak the same language with your parents and friends, you are typically fluent in both speaking and writing. If you only speak this language at home and never received any formal education in this language however, your language proficiency in writing and/or speaking is probably below the C2 level that is considered as fully fluent.

Why does RSM require applicants applying for a Master or premaster programme to submit their secondary school diploma?

We ask for your secondary school diploma for two reasons. The first being that it is good practice in the world of credential evaluation to always ask for the underlying diploma when evaluating an academic credential. This gives additional insight into the academic career of an applicant and can tell us more about the level of the bachelor diploma. The second reason has to do with fraud prevention. The more documents someone has to fabricate, the greater the chance that they will be discovered.  Students who completed their secondary school in the Netherlands (havo or vwo) do not need to submit these documents. They will be verified by DUO when you register in studielink.
