Redefining Executive Education

ISM’s mission is to provide business professionals with a strong and knowledgeable foundation in international business to further their careers.


ISM offers four international business management degrees.


Which path will you take?

The International MBA Full-time (IMBA) program at ISM is a full-time, 18-month program based in Paris with a two week course of study in New York City. Coursework for the program can be completed within one year.

Students may choose from among three different tracks:

  1. generalist
  2. specialization in entrepreneurship & innovation
  3. specialization in finance

Diversity in the class is really impressive. I remember one day when we were talking about having to mix up groups, and the teacher said that we will keep all the people from the same country in different groups. We said “Actually, we have none!” That day we had 18 people from 18 different countries so when you talk about diversity, it is really great here.

The ISM International MBA Full-time (IMBA) program is designed to develop tomorrow’s business leaders. It aims to educate young professionals with limited work experience for managerial leadership in profit and non-profit organizations. The program ensures that candidates develop an understanding of the various functional fields and processes that are required to successfully operate modern business enterprises.


ISM is committed to promoting academic excellence, creating innovative IMBA curricula, and fostering an active learning environment for all MBA candidates. Small class sizes, a low student/faculty ratio, a diverse student body, and a dedicated program staff ensure that individual needs are met throughout the program.
