International Business School

The International MBA

The International MBA is a one-year program held in Paris. As a series of bimonthly seminars that take place from Thursday to Saturday, this structure allows students to take advantage of this end-of-the-week schedule to either continue working, start in a new field and undertake an internship, or to dedicate themselves fully to the teachings, assignments and learning demanded of the seminars. All IMBA students have the opportunity to spend a summer session at a trusted ISG partner institution, St. John’s University in New York City.

The education is based on a broad array of disciplines, which will allow you to acquire a comprehensive range of management skills and an in-depth understanding of the global market place’s dynamics. It is taught entirely in English by a team of educators with top international academic and business credentials.

ISG takes pride in attracting students from all over the world: the diversity of the class, nationalities and backgrounds is what truly makes our MBA international.

I have been looking for a truly International MBA

Describe your career as of today.
I have always been interested in Biology that is why I studied Biological techniques and started my professional life as a technician. Even if this met my expectations from a scientific point of view, I realized I wanted to reach new positions. Therefore I applied to a sales marketing and management oriented program and got my degree at the Technical High School of Applied Biology Techniques. I have worked in sales for 9 years in 2 different companies in the Diagnostics field where I began as a sales representative and grew to be a sales manager.

Why did you feel it was important to get an MBA diploma?
Now the Diagnostics field is becoming globalized. To be an executive able to deal with an international environment will become a competitive asset. I believe that being analytical helps to save time and it is also the best way to be efficient. For these reasons, I had to learn what international business is in its whole by resuming studies and doing an MBA. In addition, I consider that an MBA is more than a source of knowledge: it represents a real ‘launching pad’ for my professional life.

What made you choose the ISG International MBA and how do you expect it will help you realize your career goals? Courses answer my needs regarding my professional goals and the ISG MBA schedule is compatible with my current job. Today the Diagnostic Industry is becoming more and more globalized. I strongly believe that the need for executives ‘adapted’ to this globalized business will expand. That is why I have been looking for a truly International MBA, taught in English, to widen my global management knowledge. Moreover, my career has evolved these last 9 years quickly and in a positive way. I had no problem finding interesting jobs but I guess that fewer and fewer companies (due to mergers) will mean that more people will apply for executive positions. In addition, with my professional background, an MBA will help me face those competitors.
