Student Stories - IMBA
Barbara van Wissen | IMBA Alumnus from The Netherlands
I chose to pursue the IMBA to be able to continue my professional life because at that time I was moving from the R&D segment to the international operations of a pharmaceutical company. ISM provided exactly the skills and knowledge I needed.
At ISM I was able to broaden my vision of international business and professionalize my skills. ISM has an innovative learning approach very much adapted to active professionals. The professors were seasoned professionals and academics from different horizons with considerable experience to share with the students. The student group was diverse and it was great to find the same group each time.
It was also great to be a student at NY for a couple of weeks and to be in a city that is at the heart of finance and business; it completed my IMBA experience. It was a real pleasure besides an excellent learning experience.
I may in time have projects to start a business of my own and I realized that formalized knowledge of business is an important guarantee for investors, including banks, to take interest in my projects.
