Student Stories - DBA

The student view

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

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.

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

I found the Change Management seminar with Prof. Smits excellent. I recently attended a change management program at Erasmus University and was therefore able to compare the two programs.
