The Master’s in Management (MIM) is a two-year, pre-experience program, designed to teach students how to enhance the skills developed during their undergraduate studies, and how to apply them to economic analysis, product development, and new technology management within the global marketplace. Students with any previous degree are welcome to apply to the MIM.
We've identified four core strengths that make the ESMT Master's in Management unique:
- Corporate exposure and experience:
ESMT MIM students complete up to 11 months of applied study: an
internship, a social impact project, and a thesis project. ESMT has a
growing corporate partnership with a variety of global companies who
offer internships and projects.
- Two tracks - tailored to your skills: Courses integrate qualitative analysis into applied methods for global
business management so that graduates can work in a fast-paced business
setting and work successfully with technology-based products and
services on a global scale.
- Soft skills for high-growth careers:
ESMT's small class sizes and applied approach ensures that students
gain valuable presentation and teamwork experience. Further seminars
focus on conflict management, diplomatic communication, negotiation
simulations, and other skills likely to be the difference between a
graduate's stagnation or promotion.
ESMT is accredited
by German, European, and US accrediting bodies (triple-accredited). This ensures a high-quality educational experience and a degree with a
solid reputation throughout the world.
ESMT currently holds rankings
in a number of publications, including appearances in the Financial Times, The Economist, Bloomberg Businessweek and Handelsblatt.
