I think one of the most unique aspects of ISM is the flexibility of the programs, particularly for their fully employed students. I run a full-time real estate business in the United States, and, despite this, I am able to finish my coursework.  

I strongly recommend that potential students from all walks of life consider this flexibility at ISM when choosing a program. During face-to-face courses, my fellow colleagues have revealed that they left other institutions just because they could not cope with their hectic work-study schedules. But this is not the case at ISM. Students get full assistance and flexibility while working. 

I plan to finish my DBA thesis this year, all while running my business. Every student has their own lifestyle and routine, but the beauty of ISM is that you can customize your own schedule to fit with the coursework and thesis.
