This video should feature the candidate answering these topics. The 6 minutes should be equally divided between the three questions as each of them will represent 1/3 of our evaluation. Any information provided over this time limit will not be considered. There are two options for submitting the video, guaranteeing your privacy: i) YouTube link (unlisted video) or ii) Vimeo link with a password. The link should be sent as a pdf in the CEMS application under the section “files.”
Students can apply to one of these Masters’ before or at the same time as they apply to the MIM program.
Phase 1) Application
Apply for one of Nova SBE’s Masters’ in Economics, Finance or Management mentioning your interest in applying to the CEMS MIM program, and immediately after, submit the online application for the CEMS MIM program, under “Nova School of Business & Economics.” At this stage, you will need the required documentation and media mentioned above.
These are two separate application processes - students must submit both application forms.
Phase 2) Assessment
Candidates who are accepted into one of Nova SBE Masters’ and whose application is pre-selected are invited to the Assessment Center. The Assessment Center will consist of a short presentation on a specific topic to a jury of Nova SBE Professors. Assessments are scheduled once a month in March, April, and May so early applications are recommended.
Phase 3) Decision
The decision is communicated shortly after the Assessment Center via email. If there are further questions, an additional interview might be requested.
Phase 4) Enrollment
Students must first enroll on the Nova SBE Master’s program they chose. The CEMS MIM enrollment is confirmed once the payment of a €1500 fee (deductible from the total fee) is made.
