The IUM Master of Science in International Management lasts 16 months with classes from September through June followed by an extended internship. The program’s name has been changed from Master in International Business and Global Affairs to Master of Science in International Management.

The MSc in International Management prepares graduates for careers in both domestic and international business as well as in international institutions such as global nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, nongovernmental organizations and foreign affairs agencies.

This program is interdisciplinary and attracts students with very different backgrounds: business, political science, history, economics, etc. which turns the classroom into a very enriching place.

IUMMy experience at IUM was rewarding. Thanks to a teaching based on theory, pragmatic case studies and applied group projects, the Master in International Business and Global Affairs enabled me to understand the challenges linked to globalization and to the growing complexity of the international business environment.

With a focus on the international geopolitical context, the global political economy, corporate social responsibility and sustainability, this program enabled me to acquire the competencies needed to adapt to global policy changes and foreign cultures and to be ready to work in an international setting in the world of business or diplomacy.

With my fellow students we organized and participated in a Model United Nations, which is a simulated session of a United Nations General Assembly in which each participant represents a country, and takes on a role of a diplomat proposing solutions on a specific world issue; hence I got the opportunity to meet with the Head of Communication to the United Nations for France and Monaco, with whom I stayed in contact.

Later that year, I went to a trip to Brussels organized by our Master class during which I met again with the Head of Communication to the United Nations who gave a presentation on the organization and the work undertaken by the team. I took the opportunity to hand in my CV, and received the week after an invitation for an interview for an internship, which eventually lead to a positive answer.  I am now going to do a six-months internship at the United Nations office in Brussels in charge of the communication for France and Monaco.

I joined the MIBTrade program to broaden my understanding of how trade is done internationally. The program offered
me the opportunity to understand these concepts from people who are experts in this area. The great part about being a student at IUM is the cultural diversity. Students shared their own opinions and views related to each subject based on their personal experience and background. Currently, I’m doing a market research for a company in Monaco, selling helicopters on the international market.

IUMMy experience at IUM was the perfect transition for me from the legal field into the business field. I was delighted to have had the perfect orientation into the business world, as the program was embedded in themes of ethics and sustainable development. Right now, I am back to the legal field, working in a law firm but i feel enriched as i am now able to recognise that a law firm must be run as a business. I have personally decided to embark on  Corporate social responsibility and sustainability drive for my firm and my interest in this area was without a doubt sparked by my undertaking of the Masters in International Business and global affairs program at IUM. I am extremely grateful for the training I have received and look forward incorporating the skills I have gained into other projects and fields.
