​Born in Europe in 1988. Later, CEMS has moved from a European network to a global alliance and now includes 34 full academic members around the world - each a top school of its country. Candidate members are schools that were invited to join CEMS and which are in process of creating CEMS MIM Programme at their school according to CEMS requirements.In line with CEMS’ global ambition to offer the world’s unique global MSc, more top schools in the world are approached or consider applying for CEMS membership.
As a rule, in Europe only one school from a given country may become a CEMS member. In case of large non-European countries (i.e China, USA), it is possible to invite more than one school.
