The CEMS programme offers a mix of components that seek to blend academic rigour with practitioner experience. It is internationally focused, interdisciplinary, highly interactive and aims to equip students with the necessary analytical and cross cultural skills required to work within the international management domain. We place a high importance on language and practical skills, which are essential to kick-start your professional career and adjust to an international management environment.
This unique dual degree course is targeted at graduates with a business/economics background, proven fluency in English and an additional CEMS-accredited language (plus another language), interpersonal skills, as well as a clear desire to attain an international managerial position.
