CEMS Master's in International Management End of Semester Gathering for the 2022 Spring Semester

On Friday, July 20, an end of semester meeting for the Spring 2022 CEMS MIM (Master's in International Management) programme was held at the Mita Public Speaking Hall on Mita Campus.

CEMS is a global alliance of the world's top universities and business schools, multinational companies, and NGOs , and Keio University is the only member from Japan. CEMS offers a Master's in International Management (MIM), a double degree program that allows students to earn a master's degree from both a CEMS member school and CEMS. Since Keio University became an official member of CEMS in 2010, over 40 Keio students have studied abroad at CEMS member schools as part of the program, and Keio in turn accepts students from CEMS member schools all over the world.

In the 2022 Spring Semester, for the first time in two years, Keio University was able to once again welcome CEMS students from overseas to study in-person on campus. This semester, students from universities in 11 countries came to study alongside local Keio CEMS students. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the prospect of their arrival was uncertain until just before the beginning of the semester, and many face-to-face aspects of their welcome were postponed. However, at the end of the semester, students, faculty, and staff finally had the chance to celebrate the end of the spring semester together in person at the Mita Public Speaking Hall, which is a designated Important Cultural Property right on Keio's Mita Campus.

At the gathering, there were several small speeches by faculty, staff, and the CEMS Club Tokyo President, and there were lots of opportunities to break off into smaller groups to catch up after an eventful semester.
