ISM around the world

The student view

I found it very helpful that you can break your coursework into manageable amounts so you can really focus on the coursework, but also continue to have a normal work and family life.

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.

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

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.

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

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

The small class sizes help us connect to the professors.

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

The entrepreneurship course I took at ISM was pivotal. The professor was able to create a shift in the how we viewed innovation and entrepreneurship.

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.
