Koc University

International Management (KO MIM), M.Sc.

About

Founded in 2000, KOÇ MIM set the basis of the most prestigious Master’s in International Management program. KOÇ Master of Science in International Management provides students with the competencies they need in the global business world.

The main components of the program are as follows:
Block Seminar
  • Koç University MIM students start their international management degree with a week long, intensive seminar called Block Seminar. Block Seminars are academically and culturally intensive, and the experience is the ideal starting point into the program.
Skill Seminars
  • Skill Seminars exemplify the managerial and applied foci of CEMS. Skill Seminars are training seminars in practical skills. They are essential to start in an effective professional career and fundamental to adjusting easily to an international management environment.
Business Projects
  • Business Projects are designed as a real life learning experience for students. International student teams, comparable to mini-consultancy teams, solve a real life business problem supervised by both a corporate and an academic coach.

Accreditation

All of Ko University Graduate School of Business Master programs are covered by EQUIS Accreditation that Ko University has obtained in 2009.
