About ESMT Berlin

The Master in Management (MIM) program combines internships and a social impact project with applied coursework and research on the latest business and international management theories.

Inspired by the colorful communities of Berlin, ESMT’s MIM will take you on an intense, two-year personal development journey as part of a diverse cohort of 30+ nationalities. During the first seven months, our world-class faculty will acquaint you with the most important concepts of business in a dynamic, digital world. You then embark on a three- to six-month internship, applying your new skills and giving you in-depth practical experience to complement your CV. In year two you will follow a track – Innovative Management or Quantitative Business – including courses such as Matchmakers in the digital economy and Machine learning and causality. You will close out your journey at ESMT by choosing electives from a range of topics such as finance, analytics, international strategy and entrepreneurship and participating in the Social Impact Project, a month long group consulting mission for a social cause of your choice. Parallel to the MIM program, you can choose to participate in the Portfolio Management Program where you will manage a real multi-million Euro investment portfolio or pursue an exchange at a top-ranked international partner school. 

All students learn an additional foreign language: German for international students and a global language for students who speak German (such as Spanish, Chinese or Russian).

Students interested in investing can choose to participate in the Portfolio Management program, led by an international financial management firm. First year students are analysts and second year students are investors, with both groups actively managing a total portfolio of three million Euros.

While working on their Master’s thesis, students have the opportunity of a second internship or may opt for working on a thesis topic in close coordination with a professor’s own research agenda.

 

The Master in Global Management (MGM) program will begin in September 2023. Applications open on November 1, 2022.

The Master in Global Management program prepares you to take on leadership roles in companies and organizations operating in the globalized world of the 21st century. The curriculum focuses on the development of academic insights and practice-oriented skills that benefit those who thrive in diverse international teams and who aspire to leadership roles in general management or strategy consulting. You have the opportunity to do an internship abroad, spend a semester at other renowned international business schools, learn foreign languages, complete a social impact team project, and participate in the Portfolio Management Program, in which you actively manage a real-money portfolio, and obtain a certificate in finance.

Highlights include the Ideation Bootcamp, the Summer Entrepreneurship Program that supports you to elaborate your own startup idea, the Corporate Entrepreneurship Program for you to develop venture ideas together with corporates, and the NEXT Acceleration Program, which supports your nascent venture to reach the next level in different areas. You can also choose to do an internship and a student consulting project focused on innovation.

 

The Master in Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (MAAI) program will begin in September 2023. Applications open on November 1, 2022.

The Master in Analytics and Artificial Intelligence prepares you for jobs as a digital innovation consultant, a data analytics team leader, and a technology change-maker.
