- About ISM
Redefining Executive Education
“I have encountered no hesitancy on the part of the four universities for which I have worked with regard to the quality or certification of my degree from ISM. It has afforded me opportunities I never considered possible – tenure track – and I now spend more time instructing in MBA programs than working solely within my field of study, International Business.
Within the United States, there is also an apparent caché associated with a degree from a European-based University, with particular application to the concept of global management disciplines. My experience is that American doctorate programs with the same specialty tend to focus on the application of American business & management applications to international business, rather than focusing on how business is done internationally. While nuanced, it is a much broader and more valuable base of knowledge.”
"Like several of my colleagues at ISM, my goal was to transition from senior corporate management into higher education. I chose ISM because of the international context and focus of the program as it was my intention to work internationally. In addition to helping me achieve these goals, the PhD program gave me exposure to a wealth of interesting, relevant and important subject matters, taught by very talented, knowledgeable and experienced faculty, and the chance to meet and engage with a very diverse and interesting group of PhD and DBA candidates."
