What is CEMS Program?

CEMS, the Global Alliance in Management Education, is a strategic alliance of the world's top-level business schools and universities, and multinational corporate partners.

CEMS offers a Masters degree in international management (CEMS MIM). This is a double-degree programme in which you will be granted both a CEMS MIM and a Masters degree offered by the CEMS partner school you would be enrolled. CEMS has grown since its foundation in 1988, and its International Management Programme is now recognized as one of the world's top level programmes, which is indicated by the Financial Times rankings.

CEMS partner schools are highly competitive universities which were selected on the basis of a "one country one school" policy. Keio University is the only CEMS partner school in Japan.

At Keio, the Graduate School of Economics, the Graduate School of Media Design, and the Graduate School of Business and Commerce offer this double-degree programme (CEMS MIM and a Masters degree offered by one of the graduate schools). To apply for the double degree programme, you must be enrolled in one of these graduate schools.

For detail, please see CEMS website.

How can I participate in the CEMS Program (Double Degree Program)?

To participate in the CEMS MIM Programme as a Keio University student, you must be enrolled in either the Graduate School of Economics or the Graduate School of Media Design(KMD).

If you are successfully enrolled in the CEMS MIM Programme at Keio, you will study at two CEMS schools outside of Japan for 1 academic year (2 semesters plus an internship). Since each semester will be spent at a different CEMS school, you will be studying abroad in at least two foreign countries (At least one of the two terms must be spent in Europe). You must also experience an internship abroad in one of the countries where the CEMS schools are located.

After completing this one-year curriculum for CEMS study as well as the required curriculum set by the graduate school in which you are enrolled, you will receive a CEMS MIM degree and a Master's degree from Keio University.
