ESMT European School of Management and Technology in Berlin will launch an international Masterís in Management (MIM) program. The MIM targets young graduates with strong quantitative skills who want to develop their knowledge of business and the management of technology. In addition to 11 months of campus-based learning in Berlin, the 22-month program includes an internship of up to six months in Germany or abroad. Companies that have already committed to the internship program include Axel Springer, Bosch, Deutsche Post, E.ON, McKinsey, and Siemens. A two-month team-based field project and four additional months of applied research with supporting companies or a research project at ESMT are also part of the curriculum. Students may specialize in supply chain management, innovation and technology, or marketing in the ESMT MIM, which will begin in September 2014 in Berlin.
This program has been designed together with companies and targets analytically-minded bachelorís graduates looking to complement their first degree with a broad array of business skills. "We are delighted to be a launch partner providing internships to ESMTís MIM students,Ē said Frank Mattern, Managing Partner Germany at McKinsey. "The program curriculum and target market will provide talented graduates with technical and business skills.Ē
JŲrg Rocholl , president of ESMT, said, "The Bologna Process has brought tremendous opportunities for mobility among international bachelorís graduates. Companies with which we work have identified a shortage of talented analysts with technical skills, business acumen, and an international orientation. With the Masterís in Management, ESMT aims to fill this gap.Ē
Tuition for the entire 22-month program, taught in English, is 25,000 EUR. Learning German is compulsory for international students, while German students are required to learn an additional foreign language. All participants must spend at least four months of the program abroad.
