Dr Beverly Shrand, Director of the UCT GSB's new programme, the CEMS Master of Management specialising in International Management (MIM), says a key difference between the MIM and the MBA is that the MIM is a pre-experience degree focused on young people in their twenties, whereas MBA candidates usually have a few years' work experience behind them.
"With the CEMS alliance, we are trying to groom tomorrow's leaders, people who want to make the world a better place, and who care about making a difference to issues like sustainability, inclusiveness, and social injustice."
"The MIM really prepares you to work in countries all over the world. It's about leading internationally, becoming a manager who can cope with diverse cultures, who is completely able to work in different types of contexts and who can very comfortably fit in anywhere in the world."
