Studying at an international level

During the first two semesters of studying at ISM, you will deepen your already acquired business administration knowledge and learn how to convince the client of your strategy proposals with your competencies in consulting projects. In order to sharpen your profile, you can choose your own major in International Controlling, International Operations or Digital Marketing.

You will spend the third semester at one of our numerous partner universities abroad.

You will then write your practice-oriented Master's thesis in the fourth semester. This means that you will receive your degree with 120 ECTS already in the fourth semester.


Standard Fee: 5700 EUR per semester
