College of Management has engaged in student mobility for a decade to promote a dynamic learning environment in over 30 institutions. We have a range of exchange partnerships with numerous institutions in Asia, Oceania, Europe, and America. To gain an international experience and expand your area of study, explore your options and browse our partner universities from "Global Partners".


Students will continue to pay CMMU fees as normal for the period of study overseas that semester but not be required to pay tution fees to the host university. All other costs such as travel, accommodation, living expenses, health insurance, etc. must be met by students. Estimated costs based on information provided by host institutions on their website.


All credits students earned from the host university can be transfered to CMMU. Thus, all applicants will need to consult with their program director or program coordinator about suitable courses of study available at the receiving institution whether they will be integrated into their current studies or not. Students should visit the online course catalogue of partner universities to ensure that suitable courses of study are available.


Before applying for the study abroad program, we recommend that you should attend information sessions to receive information about the program, partner universities, preparations and arrangements, and application procedures. There are two times per academic year: in February for application to fall semester and in August for application to spring semester. If students miss the study abroad information sessions, please contact the International Relations Office for further information.

To apply for the study abroad program, you have to submit the following documentation to the Online Application system:

  • Current grade report (unofficial transcript) from the Academic Affairs Office
  • Certificate of English language proficiency : TOEFL, IELTS or equivalent
  • A4 Statement of Purpose (A personal statement explaining why you wish to apply the study abroad program)
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • A photocopy of passport
**Selection Interview dates will be confirmed when you apply.


After the application deadline is due, IRO will contact applicants to made an appointment for an interview in a week later. Applicants who are invited for an interview will be notified the outcomes and proceed with further applications to their host universities.


After your application materials are sent to the host universities, you will receive contacts from them directly for online registration, accommodation and other relevant arrangements. An acceptance letter and student information package will be mailed to IRO, then we will contact you to pick them up.


Students are likely to require a visa and contact foreign embassies by themselves. In order to obtain a visa, students must provide an acceptance letter, accommodation confirmation and financial evidence. Students should read the embassy website carefully for documentation preparation on visa application. Please note that students will be required to bear the cost of this themselves.


After your exchange semester ends, it takes around one or two months to obtain your transcript from the host university. The transcript will be delivered directly to IRO. We will contact you as soon as we receive it.


When students are accepted by the host universities, students will be required to complete a CMMU Study Abroad Program Course Request Form of Study Abroad Program. In this document, students need to list all the courses you wish to take at a host university. The CMMU Study Abroad Program Course Request Form has to be signed by the relevant staff at IRO at CMMU. Then, the signed document will be forwarded to the Academic Affairs for the registration process.

All students studying abroad are required to have a CMMU Certificate Of Arrival and Departure completed by your host university and returned to the International Relations Office as soon as you return to your study at CMMU.

A CMMU Study Abroad Program Course Request Form and CMMU Certificate Of Arrival and Departure can be downloaded at 'Documents Download'.

What I enjoy most is the very comprehensive 3-day classes which were customized up to students’ background. Each class has only 5-7 students from the U.S, Singapore, New Zealand and Thailand so it’s a must for you to speak up and share your ideas. 60% of the time is class discussion about case studies to exchange knowledge from each culture and environment and this is where I gained new and interesting perspectives from this international context.
