The basic for requirements for all CEMS/IM internships are:

  • Internships must cover a period of at least 10 consecutive weeks in the same company.
  • Full-time employment.
  • Internships can take place at any time during the graduate period of studies except the MIM year (also prior to CEMS selection).
  • Internships have to be an intercultural experience and thus need to be carried out abroad (any country). For CEMS internships, “abroad” is defined as either:
