Imperial College London has joined forces with three international business schools to create a Global MiM Network, a multiple school exchange programme for Master’s in Management students.
The Global MiM Network will allow four students from each member school to take courses from the other partner institutions. This will provide them with a more global study experience without the associated bureaucracy or cost of full-time overseas programme.
Incoming students on Imperial’s MSc International Management programme will benefit from this exchange.
Four schools partner in the Global MiM Network
The programme will work in a collaboration of four schools: Imperial College Business School (UK), ESMT Berlin (Germany), SMU Lee Kong Chian School of Business (Singapore) and Smith School of Business at Queen’s University (Canada).
The Global MiM Network has been created to meet the needs of students who are expecting a more global, practically focused study experience in order to build the necessary skills and knowledge to successfully pursue international business careers.
Students participating in the exchange will take the core modules at their home business school and then travel overseas to complete additional courses at institutions within the network.
Students will have greater flexibility to tailor their academic and personal journey across four different locations, making it a different experience from traditional exchange programmes.
As well as international study, students will have the option to undertake internships with companies whilst studying at some of the partner schools, providing them with first-hand experience of working in international business worldwide, broadening their options following graduation.
Young students increasingly seeking international experience
Leila Guerra, Associate Dean of Programmes at Imperial College Business School said: “As the focus of business becomes increasingly global, Millennials and Gen-Z master’s students are seeking careers beyond their home country and demand a more diverse study experience that will prepare them for careers in any industry or destination.”
Graduates of the programme will receive a degree from their home school as well as certificates reflecting the courses taken at partner institutions.
They will also become part of the alumni networks from the schools they attended as part of the exchange.
There will be no additional tuition fees for students who wish to participate in the Global MiM Network.
The programme is to be offered to four students at each institution starting their studies in August and September 2019.
