Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs) build on the success of Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses (EMMCs) and aim to:
- Foster excellence, innovation, and internationalisation in Higher Education Institution
- Boost the attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and support the EU’s external action in the field of higher education
- Improve the level of competences and skills of Master graduates, and their employability
EMJMDs are highly integrated study programmes that are delivered by an international consortium of Higher Education Institutions. Where relevant, the consortium can also include other educational and non-educational partners with specific expertise in the field covered by the joint programme.
After a preparatory year, consortia implement three annual selections of students, who are awarded a joint or multiple degree at the end of their studies.
