As Germany's most international business school, intercultural skills are simply a way of life. Our 2018-20 MIM class is by far the most international and most diverse in Germany, with 92 students from 32 countries. The program emphasizes business management within a connected global market. Highlights include:
International faculty: All courses are in English, and 83% of the faculty is international. You will have classes with top-trained professors from around the world, ensuring global insights into management issues.
Foreign languages: All students study a new language during the program. For non-native German speakers, MIM candidates learn German to increase their competitiveness on the German job market, and complete internships immersed in the German corporate culture. Native German speakers choose a language needed to manage relationships in the world's fastest growing economies. Language tuition are built into the on-campus periods and included in the tuition fee. Language courses are tailored to various levels of experience.
Social impact project: In their second year, students complete a project that benefits various stakeholders in society. Possibilities might include running English-language classes in developing countries, helping social entrepreneurial ventures, or volunteering for renewable energy projects.
Global Network for Advanced Management: In 2018, ESMT Berlin participated in the first annual MIM Global Network Week, in which MIM students visit other participating network business schools to delve into a relevant focus area. They participate in collaborative projects, visit local companies, network, and attend guests lectures in which they have the opportunity to learn from a broad spectrum of business leaders and scholars.
Work abroad: Students have the possibility to complete their thesis work in another country. This is especially recommended for German students.
