#In the Middle of Practice

ISM student meets former president

If someone had asked me how high the probability was that I would ever meet a president to talk to him personally about the future of Europe, I would have just smiled politely, said Alexander Scherer. ISM students can actively participate in the Campus Symposium and experience the fascination of a large business conference for themselves.

International Management Master - study abroad

Getting Off to an International Start

In the International Management Master, a semester abroad at one of around 190 partner universities is firmly integrated into the curriculum. You will:

  • learn international economics,
  • intensify your intercultural competencies and
  • have the opportunity to obtain a second international double degree at one of our partner universities.

Since the Master in Management is taught entirely in English, you will be well prepared for negotiations and cooperation across national borders after completing your studies.

#On the Move Internationally During the Studies

Experience contrasts with the double degree in Mexico

For the past five months, Sven Goldammer has been studying at the Tec de Monterrey in Guadalajara, the second largest city in Mexico. Together with fellow ISM students and some Mexicans, he has rented a house and is right in the middle of Mexican life. Life in Mexico is characterized by contrasts. Rich and poor, desert and jungle, crime and warmth.It was a unique experience for him.


How Can I Apply?

In order to study international management at ISM, the university conducts an internal entrance test that tests your personality, motivation and skills. The International Management Master is not restricted by a “Numerus Clausus” (NC).
