"Strength and diversity across international markets should be the school’s mission statement --helping students really become students of the world."Having worked in the financial industry for eight years and taught business statistics at University of Hong Kong for another six years, I find the ISM PhD program an ideal platform to further my research study combining my academic and career proficiency. I thoroughly enjoyed ISM’s PhD seminars held in Paris where we had invaluable discussions with professors and students from locations around the world. I also enjoyed seminars held at St. John University in New York and Fudan University in Shanghai, providing the opportunity to visit different campus in these rapidly growing cities. The online courses are effective and efficient - an alternative way of learning that accommodates my schedule when I am unable to travel. ISM’s course structure, content, interactions and flexibility are valuable assets of the program, which I find unique and superior to other higher degree institutes.
