Mission Statement

IUM aims to educate highly skilled and responsible business leaders from all over the world through outstanding teaching in a small, stimulating, cross-cultural environment fostering entrepreneurial spirit, collaborative work and mutual understanding among students, faculty and staff.



IUM stands for pedagogical quality,

  • Through research devoted to the advancement and dissemination of management knowledge to improve managerial practices,
  • In close connection with the international business community,
  • Rooted in a multi-cultural territory that encourages high value service activities, innovation and corporate social responsibility.


Thus IUM contributes to the internationalization of the academic institution to which it belongs, Groupe INSEEC, as well as supports the Principality of Monaco’s attractiveness and dynamism.

Mission statement

IUM has developed a teaching philosophy based on five learning principles:

  • Individual attention: Interactive learning, online support, and small classes accommodate a variety of learning styles, with timely formative feedback reinforcing the learning process and personal development.
  • Balance of theory and application: With both academics and professionals using innovative teaching techniques and online technologies based around lectures, case studies, group projects, and business simulations, students are readily able to apply management theories and models in real life settings.
  • Active learning: Professors create a dynamic, interactive, hands-on learning environment that encourages and expects active engagement from students. Case studies, class discussion, debate, and online forums are commonly used across the curriculum to enhance students’ analytical, creative and problem-solving skills.
  • Cooperative and collaborative learning: Regular group projects allow students to apply their knowledge to new situations while developing their skills in leadership, communication, and teamwork.
  • Multicultural learning: Building on the cultural diversity of the student body and faculty, students learn to respect cultural diversity and to negotiate and capitalize on the richness that different perspectives bring to management decisions.

Inspiring the Global Generation

Why IUM?

The Monaco Business School at the International University of Monaco (IUM) develops successful and thoughtful leaders and entrepreneurs.

About us - ium

We pride ourselves on our small class size, where students receive individual attention in their academic endeavors. There is a high-level of interactivity between professors and students, and we encourage creative thinking.

We encourage students to go beyond the theories and data taught in the lecture hall by using the skills learnt in real world situations. This allows them to develop strong analytical and cognitive skills which provide them with a foundation for their development as successful business people.

Students learn in a thoroughly multi-cultural environment, which brings together people from all over the world to share ideas,

change lives and create opportunities on a global scale. Our students take with them a sense of who they are in the world of commerce, and pride in themselves as confident business people and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

Monaco is one of the top centers for business in Europe, as well as being renowned for being a safe environment. Our students graduate with the business skills, practical experience and personal development that will serve them for life. It is our mission to inspire the global generation.

We invite you to visit us, meet current students and faculty, and attend a class.

We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about the International University of Monaco.
