The joint CEMS Master’s in International Management (MiM) is the main vehicle for achieving this goal.

Common to all activities is the aim of promoting global citizenship, with particular emphasis placed upon the following values:

  • The pursuit of excellence with high standards of performance and ethical conduct;
  • Understanding and drawing upon cultural diversity with respect and empathy;
  • Professional responsibility and accountability in relation to society as a whole.

GNAM leverages resources from business schools across continents, positioning future leaders to thrive in roles which require a broad understanding of the differences between markets and diverse stakeholders.

Created in 2020, the EuroTeQ Engineering University was originally made up of six of Europe's leading technology universities: Technical University of Munich (TUM), Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), École Polytechnique (l'X), Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU), Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech).

Following the success of this first phase, two business schools, HEC Paris and the University of Navarra (IESE), have joined the alliance to enrich it with high-level expertise in management, innovation and entrepreneurship.
