MIDS is an intensive program.For the full-time, one-year program, an average week comprises about 20 hours of in-class courses for which our students have to thoroughly prepare in advance (2 to 3 hours of preparation for hour of class is a good estimate). For the two-year option in the Online Section, the workload is roughly the same but spread out over two years, and will depend on how the student customizes the program.
The MIDS teaching system requires an active class, where students are called on to express their opinions, discuss the views expressed by classmates and comment on required readings.

Some courses take place every week at the same time and day, but many of the other activities (workshops, lectures, seminars, conferences, study trips, networking events,…) do not follow a regular pattern and they are scattered throughout the program. That is why no two weeks look alike at MIDS.

Our students should be prepared to fully commit themselves. MIDS is a transformative experience where working hard pays off.
