Most students graduate within six months after having finished the programme. However, there are two set deadlines that students will have to meet to be allowed to graduate:
- Maximum 1.5 years passed between graduation from the home degree and fulfilment of all other CEMS MIM requirements.
- Maximum 5 years passed between the end of the MIM year and graduation from the home degree.
Failure to meet any of the two deadlines will result in loss of entitlement to graduate from the MIM programme without further by-case assessment by the CEMS Graduation Committee.
The CEMS MIM certificate will show grades.
The Graduation Ceremony takes place each year during the CEMS Annual Events (normally at the beginning of December) which are hosted by one of the CEMS member schools.
