Student Stories - IMBA
Issa Khamis | IMBA Alumnus from Jordan
I saw the ISM website and I found out that the school was really everything I was looking for. It’s international, for one thing. It’s also based in Paris, which is an enormous business center. I had already lived in a couple other European countries, and I decided I wanted to know France and learn French. What I like are the seminars. You really learn things you’ll use. Other schools teach this unusable information, but at ISM they constantly remind you to apply theory to practice, to make the leap. International Finance, for example, was a real eye opener for me. Some courses are just too short, and that was one of them. An accredited MBA like ISM’s is a real plus in the job market, and it translates to credibility for the entrepreneur. I haven’t decided on my course after graduation yet, but I’m sure ISM will be a plus whichever path I decide on. The thing is, you really do an MBA to meet people, people from all over, people you want to work with. At ISM I’ve found people whose work I respect, whose values I share, and with whom I may eventually collaborate.
