The integrated practical, real-life case-studies, study excursions and internships offer you extensive opportunities to gain hands-on, relevant work experience, practice problem-solving and prove yourself in various areas. This massively increases your employability after graduating the masters of management.

#In the Middle of Management Practice
MiM 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 International Management student Alexander Scherer. ISM students can actively participate in the Campus Symposium and experience the fascination of a large business conference for themselves.
Gain International Student Experience in Management
