More about the programme

Hear from our current students

This is one of the most challenging yet most rewarding times of my life. We learn to be critical about long-standing concepts. IM/CEMS gives me the chance to follow my interest through electives while not losing sight of the bigger picture. And the best part: the people in the programme are open to new opinions, challenge your opinions, and come from a multitude of cultures and backgrounds. You learn with and also from your classmates.
