The University of St.Gallen has been honoured with this award for its services to the CEMS Master’s Programme in International Management (MIM), which in the academic year of 2012/13 again occupied the top position among all programmes of the CEMS universities. Students rated both the academic quality and the programme-specific services as outstanding throughout. Students complete the CEMS-MIM programme at two universities of the network; in addition, about 70 globally operating corporations and NGOs are involved in the programme. The CEMS Master has occupied a top place in the Financial Times’s Ranking of Master’s Programmes in Management for years.
