Alumni testimonials

"This program helped me understand business from a variety of angles. Coming from a social science background, I acquired not only broad business knowledge but also a critical, international perspective by discussing and collaborating with classmates from around the world. Paris afforded me the opportunity to complete internships where I could hone my career interests with practical experience. Plus, I learned French and had so much fun living the student life in a world-renowned city."

Rachel Rivera, Junior Account Manager - Drupal Association, Portland, Oregon, USA - Class 2014


"IMBM was the best study experience so far for me, in terms of organization, diversity and team work. It is definitely a degree worth doing."

Angela Motpan, Senior Associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers – Dubai – United Arab Emirates – Class 2011


“The management courses were complimentary to my engineering background, which played vital role in landing me at a well suited job. I am grateful for the need that IMBM fulfilled in my life. I am currently a. On a daily basis, I must apply various aspects of theory and use some techniques that I learned during my IMBM to fulfill my responsibilities. With its truly international class, it has also provided me lifelong friends and networks from all around the world. I wholeheartedly endorse IMBM and everything for which it stands.”

Tamil Selvan, Business Development Executive – European Business and Technology Center - New Delhi, India – Class 2014


"The IMBM has been a great experience:
- In terms of learning, the syllabus covers a wide variety of subjects that are essential to develop business acumen and vision. Vision for entrepreneurship, or for a high company position.
- In terms of sharing and networking, the mix between french and international students is a true opportunity to open yourself to the world and build relationships. I still keep in touch with friends from the '10 promotion, and I am looking forward to one day, do business with them.
I highly recommend this master's program for any person who wishes to develop english speaking and writing proficiency, build a solid skill-set for employability, and make connections throughout the world."
