Why Managers Choose the ISM IEMBA
The IEMBA program has two terminal degree options:
The Traditional Option
The Traditional Option takes place in the classroom, making use of ISM's Paris campus as well as its international programs in New York,New Delhi, and Shanghai. Its strength, of course, is the opportunity for participants to meet one another face-to-face, and share their experience and knowledge.
To complete their requisite coursework in the classroom:
The e-Learning Option
The e-Learning Option takes advantage of ISM’s extensive e-Learning curriculum, which offers students the possibility of completing the majority of their IEMBA seminars on-line. Through this approach, students may study as their schedules permit, adjusting the pace of their coursework to the demands of office and home. E-Learning students are nevertheless required to take 25% of their seminars (i.e. 9 credits) in the traditional classroom. The remaining 24 credits are to be completed on e-learning (i.e. 8 on-line courses).
To complete the requisite classroom seminars, students may choose between the following options:
Please note that e-Learning students are not confined to the e-Learning curriculum, and may take as many traditional seminars as they wish to complete their degree.
All IEMBA students are required to complete two Professional Assessment Case Studies during the course of their program. The first one is completed before starting the program and the second one is completed towards the end of the program. If students satisfactorily complete these two evaluations within their respective deadlines, 0.75 credits may be earned towards the degree requirements for each case study.
The final element of the program involves researching and writing a Master's Thesis. Conducted under the supervision of an approved Director of Research, the Master's Thesis should be:
Once the thesis has been submitted to and approved by the ISM Thesis Committee, the student is eligible to receive his or her IEMBA degree, provided that a minimum of 33 credits of coursework and the two Professional Assessment Evaluation Case Studies have been successfully completed.
