A study stay abroad and an internship abroad are indispensable parts of the International Management Programme.
Each semester about 15 exchange students from CEMS partner universities complement the class of our students. There are in average 63% of international students in one class coming from 14 countries.
Students spend one semester abroad, either during the winter or summer term within their 1st year of study, at a CEMS partner university. They are integrated in a very international group of students, and are exposed both inside and outside the classroom to cross-cultural learning experiences. CEMS-accredited courses and exams taken at the CEMS partner universities will be fully acknowledged in the student’s curriculum.
Internships provide students with the real-life professional learning experience of integrating into an organisation’s culture and processes. The main objective is to turn academic experience and theoretical knowledge into a professional, multi-cultural experience. The minimum length is 8 weeks.
CEMS literally changed my life! I’m really grateful for all the smart, ambitious and open classmates who became my friends as well as colleagues which confirms that getting a job is just cherry on a cake of a few amazing years paved by inspirational talks, encounters, travels, forums, reunions, events and simply brilliant people.

Being on the verge of finishing my CEMS journey, I can honestly say CEMS has been one of the best decisions I could have made for my personal development and future professional career. During the past two eventful and exciting years, I had a chance to study and work in four different countries, continuously put myself out of my comfort zone and access opportunities which previously seemed unreachable. CEMS gave me the opportunity to engage in projects addressing real-life business topics, enhance my skills through numerous conferences and training and get to know some of the world‘s most innovative companies.
