The student view

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

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

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.

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