CEMS MIM Learning Objectives

Quality Assurance

In order to maintain a high standard of teaching, CEMS not only constantly develops its curriculum but all individual programme elements. Additionally,  the support services provided by the academic members are subject to a constant quality evaluation. It allows us to make sure that our programme satisfaction level meets the best standards. This is also to ensure that the above learning objectives are met.

Online evaluations are sent to the students upon finishing every major programme element through the CEMS Global Office.


As part of its improvement process, CEMS uses student satisfaction surveys that evaluate all programme elements. The survey is distributed through the online survey system  and collected by CEMS Global Office. Students are strongly recommended to complete these surveys, the results of which are a major resource for the work of the CEMS Academic Committee and for local Academic Directors to monitor and improve the programme.
