Demand is high for business programs with global reach and cross-cultural exposure. If your school wishes to offer such a program but lacks the resources or network, we can help. We’ve designed and delivered executive education for dozens of top business schools and currently have around 300 students across various programs throughout the world.

You don’t need to take a full degree program to enjoy the career-enhancing benefits of studying at ISM.

Our International Executive Certificate programs are held throughout the year in various locations around the world, and can usually be completed within two days to two weeks.

Whichever program or location you choose, you’ll experience the same small class sizes, personal attention and culturally diverse learning environment as our full degree students.
