The student view

I've been able to study with 18 different nationalities in a group of 20 students. The diversity of opinions and perspectives is truly remarkable.

Studying at ISM is a great way to learn, see the world, and expand your international network.

The flexibility that ISM offers is truly unparalleled. The ability to seamlessly transition between regular lectures and distance-based e-learning is yet another advantage.

Having an international DBA with ISM allows me to make an impact globally.

ISM offers flexibility without compromising the quality of the academic experience.

ISM is very hands-on with the development of its students and creates professionals destined for greater horizons.

The culture at ISM facilitates success by motivating students while providing the individual support they may need.

Going through ISM, and the contacts that I made, gave me the opportunity to get my dream job with my dream company in London. This definitely would not have happened if I had not finished my MBA at ISM.

The small class sizes help us connect to the professors.

I found it very helpful that you can break your coursework into manageable amounts so you can really focus on the coursework, but also continue to have a normal work and family life.
