The CEMS Masters in International Management Project requires students to work in culturally and functionally diverse teams to solve real international business strategy and management problems for actual organizations engaged in activities that span national borders. Student teams are matched with corporate and social partners and given a consulting assignment, which the teams resolve with interaction with their corporate and social partners and supervision from the professor. In addition to the actual consulting work, the course includes a set of skill building and debriefing meetings referring to information acquisition and analysis, critical thinking in an organizational environment, consulting practice, project management, and processes of team formation and management. The result of the project is a comprehensive report and formal presentation to the corporate or social partner.
