- About ISM
Redefining Executive Education
Thus far the faculty has been incredible. They are very highly educated individuals, but they also have academic experience paired with work experience. To be able to elicit a response from them on a business case or a business scenario has been an awesome experience.
ISM’s professors are international experts. At this level they are more like moderators, creating a network and camaraderie within the class and sometimes expand beyond the seminar room where you can work with them on projects. It is really something quite special that happens at ISM.
