About IPBS-MIM Master Programme

The Master in International Management (MIM) is a one-year global management programme that provides young professionals with the knowledge and skills to thrive in dynamic international business settings.

MIM is an intensive 10-15 month master’s programme offered by six leading international business schools through the International Partnership of Business Schools (IPBS). The programme requires study in two schools/countries, starting with the Partner A School and graduating from the Partner B School. A candidate cannot choose to do the entire programme in just one country.

Classes start in the fall and finish at the end of spring of each year. The length of the programme varies depending on the student’s choice of Partner B School and its thesis requirement along with its basic work experience prerequisite for graduation.

Students complete Study Block I (lectures) in France, Italy, Mexico, Ireland or the U.S. and Study Block II (lectures) in Germany, Ireland or the U.S. If completing the degree in Germany of Ireland, students complete their master’s thesis in Study Block III. Northeastern University in the U.S. does not require a master’s thesis. The Study Block II and III schools are MSc degree -awarding institutions.
