The ISM Annual Winter Reception was held on December 4th, 2014, in Paris, France. Professor Jack Forget, ISM's President, and Alison Knight, ISM's Director of Recruitment, began by welcoming everyone and the new students enrolled in different programs (MBA, IEMBA, DBA, and PhD). They gave a brief overview about the future plans for ISM, and the forthcoming updates within the school, plus presenting some photos taken for ISM students during their seminars at ISM's partner locations.
The reception was very beneficial for all attendees, especially the new students enrolled in the school's programs. It enabled the students to connect and discuss with their peers and alumni. These connections help students to identify their future careers and business opportunities after finishing their respective programs, as well as creating new business contacts from different countries and cultures.
Overall, the reception was a great success. Students really enjoyed it, and for me I am very keen to attend it every year if I am in Paris, It was an excellent opportunity for me to meet my peers, either graduated or newly enrolled, professors, and the management team of ISM.
