Curriculum for Keio Students Enrolled in CEMS MIM
Keio students who participate in the CEMS MIM must enter the Masters Programamme in  the Graduate School of Economics, the Graduate School of Business and Commerce, or the Graduate School of Media Design. Since the requirements for these three programmes are quite different, it is necessary to deal with these three course structures separately (although there are curriculum requirements that commonly apply to all CEMS students in both graduate schools).

Below are the curriculum requirements common to all CEMS students:

MIM YEAR  
Block Seminar Term 1 (Aug. - Jan.)* Term 2 (Feb. - Jul)* International Internship
3 ECTS 30 ECTS 1 ECTS 15 ECTS 15 ECTS Minimum 8 consective weeks
Global Strategy Course and other CEMS Courses Responsible Global Leadership Seminar Global Management Practice and other CEMS courses Business Project Any time except during the CEMS curriculum (but not when CEMS courses are in session)
       Business Communication Skill Seminars (1 ECTS)           Skill Seminars (1 ECTS)  

*The beginning and end of terms (semesters) differ according to the CEMS school.

Keio students who are enrolled in CEMS MIM in the Graduate School of Economics

In order to be awarded a Masters of Arts in Economics, Keio students enrolled in the Graduate School of Economics are required to successfully complete at least 30 credits of appropriate coursework and to submit a satisfactory masters thesis. There are two requirements on the 30 credits of coursework:
1. Specialist Subjects: at least 10 credits; and
2. Seminar Subjects: at least 8 credits.

Students who complete their MIM Year abroad can expect to be given credit for 10 of the required 30 credits. Since the Graduate School of Economics currently only permits enrollement in their Masters of Arts in Economics in April, the following is the expected course structure for Keio students in the Graduate School of Economics:

1st Year 2nd Year 3rd Year
  MIM YEAR
April - Term 1
(Aug. - Jan.)*
Term 2
(Feb. - Jul.)*
September- April- ---
Study at Keio Study abroad at CEMS school Study abroad at CEMS school Study at Keio Study at Keio ---

*The beginning and end of terms (semesters) differ according to the CEMS school.

The six basic courses offered at Keio are: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Intermediate Econometrics, Mathematical Statistics, European and American HistoryJapanese Economic History, and Economic Doctrine and Thought. The Graduate School of Economics expects that the masters theses submitted for its masters degree will be academic in orientation.

Requirements for Completion for KMD students enrolled in Academic Year 2011 and after

In order to be awarded a Master of Media Design, a student must earn a minimum of 32 credits and satisfy the credit requirements in each of the following subjects, and pass the Final Presentation for the Master’s thesis.
- Introductory subjects (requisite): Total of 8 credits
- Theory/Strategy subjects: Total of 8 credits or more (from more than 3 tracks)
- Innovator’s Seminar subjects: Total of 2 credits or more
- Skill subjects: Total of 4 credits or more
- Project subject : 2 credits from Introductory Project and 6 credits from Real Project
- Independent research subjects for Master in Media Design: 2 credits

The Graduate School of Media Design permits enrollment in the Master of Media Design in April and September in any year. The structure of the CEMS course will be heavily influenced by whether the student enrolls in April or September. The current course structure in KMD is as follows (for further details in English see http://www.kmd.keio.ac.jp/en/admissions/master-model.php):

1st Year 2nd Year 3rd Year
  MIM YEAR
April - Term 1
(Aug. - Jan.)*
Term 2
(Feb. - Jul.)*
September- April-
Study at Keio Study abroad at CEMS school Study abroad at CEMS school Study at Keio Study at Keio ---

*The beginning and end of terms (semesters) differ according to the CEMS school.

For outgoing CEMS students enrolling in KMD in September, the following is the proposed CEMS course structure:

1st Year 2nd Year 3rd Year
  MIM YEAR
September- April- Term 1
(Aug. - Jan.)*
Term 2
(Feb. - Jul.)*
September-
         --- Study at Keio Study at Keio Study abroad at CEMS school Study abroad at CEMS school Study at Keio

*The beginning and end of terms (semesters) differ according to the CEMS school.

Given the highly structured nature of the curriculum for the Master of Media Design, it will not be possible for Keio’s CEMS students to complete their course within the standard two year period.
