Discover Monaco

At the crossroads of nationalities, cultures, and inspirations, Monaco has established itself as a destination of choice for students from all over the world willing to share their talents and acquire a wide variety of professional skills.

The Principality offers an unrivaled environment to live, study and work, first and foremost because of its privileged geographical location on the Côte d’Azur, between France and Italy, two countries with a formidable historical and cultural heritage. Monaco is also well known for its relentless pursuit of excellence and hosts events of international stature all year long, particularly in the luxury and sports sectors. As IUM students, you will have the invaluable privilege of helping to organise events like the Monaco Symposium in Luxury, the Monaco Ocean protection Challenge, or the annual UHNWI Summit.

In Monaco, students can combine the benefits of a small city with the many local and international business possibilities available.
