We are the International School of Management (ISM) – a specialized business school based in Paris, France, with partner institutions on four different continents.


ISM around the world

The student view

The flexibility that ISM offers is truly unparalleled. The ability to seamlessly transition between regular lectures and distance-based e-learning is yet another advantage.

Going through ISM, and the contacts that I made, gave me the opportunity to get my dream job with my dream company in London. This definitely would not have happened if I had not finished my MBA at ISM.

ISM is very hands-on with the development of its students and creates professionals destined for greater horizons.

If you want international exposure and practical learning, and you don't want to interrupt your work while you study, then ISM is the place to be.

The small class sizes help us connect to the professors.

Studying at ISM is a great way to learn, see the world, and expand your international network.

The culture at ISM facilitates success by motivating students while providing the individual support they may need.

Having an international DBA with ISM allows me to make an impact globally.

ISM offers flexibility without compromising the quality of the academic experience.

I've been able to study with 18 different nationalities in a group of 20 students. The diversity of opinions and perspectives is truly remarkable.
