An interactive and deeply engaging experience

iMSMcourses are interactive. Professors engage with you personally. And working with classmates is routine. The iMSM includes both an online global classroom and a series of team projects, which give you experience applying what you learn. 

This is an excerpt from an iMBA course. iMSM courses will mirror this model.

Each course is composed of three elements:

  • On-Demand Component: Get the fundamentals. Complete a weekly module and assignment that develops your core business knowledge.
  • Live Session: Join the global classroom. Attend and participate in a live lecture with your professor and classmates.
  • Individual or Team Project: Apply what you learn. Complete a weekly assignment designed by your professor.

Faculty and specially trained student support teams are also available for in-person office hours outside of class.
