I had already earned an MBA in Russia, but I began working for a Swiss multinational in their St. Petersburg office, and I realized I needed a more international business education. I travel eight months a year, so I needed a degree program with a certain flexibility. I knew I wanted to study in Western Europe, but London was too restricted. I discovered ISM and found that its Paris campus offered the mix of European culture and American faculty that I was looking for to deepen my education. This degree is different from the rest: the professors are teaching to their equals; the interaction is fast and rich; the ideas are conveyed quickly.
