Block Seminar is an intensive one-week seminar that forms a compulsory part of CEMS MIM curriculum. Block seminars are organized by all CEMS partner schools before the first (= winter) term. Students usually take part in the Block seminar at the university where they are going to spend their winter term. Registration for this Block seminar is not needed, the place is granted automatically.
In case students are interested in Block seminars in a different location, they have the possibility to register for a different Block seminar and ask for a transfer. Students also have to register if their first term school offers more than one Block seminar (e.g. ESADE, RSM or WU). All topics are available at cems.org during May.
All students will get an information e-mail with registration details and further recommendations before the registration starts (usually during May).
Most schools require a financial contribution to the seminar, which covers accommodation, food, course material etc. The fee at VŠE is 250 EUR/1 student. The travel cost to and from the seminar comes from the budget of the student.
