CEMS MIM Programme format and delivery

The MIM Programme consists of three terms: two academic terms (Term 1 & Term 2) and the internship term (Term 3).

The two academic terms are consecutive (August–July), while the internship (Term 3) can take place at any time during the graduate period of studies, but not overlapping with Term 1 and Term 2. Students will spend one out of the two academic terms at the UCT GSB as their home school.
