CEMS Master's in International Management

CEMS Master's in International Management

CEMS is a strategic alliance of 31 world-class business schools, 75 multinational companies and six NGOs and aims to set the gold standard for excellence with its one-year Master's in International Management (MIM) degree.

NHH joined the network in 1992, which is open to only one business school from each country. You must be enrolled at NHH to apply for a place on the CEMS MIM joint degree programme.

Applicants may either be in the final year of their bachelor’s degree or the first semester of one of the programmes in NHH’s Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration.

The CEMS Master's in International Management (CEMS MIM) is ranked as one of the best business qualifications in the world by the Financial Times. CEMS students in Bergen are awarded with two degrees, a Master in Economics and Business Administration from NHH and a CEMS Master's in International Management.

By joining CEMS, you have taken a major step in launching your international career and become part of a professional and social network active on a global scale.
