- About ISM
Redefining Executive Education
I chose the ISM DBA program because of its enrollment standards, flexible program, and the intense focus on international business. Not only could the curriculum fit my schedule, but attending class with other classmates from around the world helped form relationships that will last long after the program. The international and varied perspectives presented in class made for a well-rounded and enriching learning environment. In most things in life, you get out of them what you put in. At ISM, I feel like I got even more than I expected. My operating scope and global awareness increased a hundred-fold through this program. I would highly recommend this program to any of my associates or friends.
I found the Change Management seminar with Prof. Smits excellent. I recently attended a change management program at Erasmus University and was therefore able to compare the two programs. The Erasmus program was very focused on a specific change methodology, where I felt the ISM program focused on the broader dynamic of change. I found some of the opposing thinking that Prof. Smits introduced to be very valuable and helpful in explaining a business change that I am personally experiencing.
Regarding the ISM program, I have found the level of teaching to be very professional. The learning through class discussion, exploring the respective experiences, adds tremendous value to the overall experience.
I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to study at ISM and continue my postgraduate studies. My DBA program gave me the chance to be one of those successful candidates and establish a good friendship with many students.
ISM is the best school to offer an intensive international program that helped me gained valuable field experience with the right combination of theory.
Because of the flexibility of the program, ISM students take the advantage to continue study without abandon their work. From my own experience I do encourage the candidates who are looking forward to continuing their education to study at ISM.
