ISM - International School of Management

The International School of Management (ISM) is a specialized, accredited business school based in Paris, France, with programs on five different continents. We give students the global perspective they need to thrive as modern business leaders. We do this by keeping our classes small, select and culturally diverse, and by offering programs in major commercial hubs around the world.


Our founder Jack Forget opened ISM to challenge the traditional business school model.

His vision was for an outward-looking school that champions innovation and new ways of teaching. It would be a truly global institution, with partnerships in emerging markets around the world. Students from all continents would learn from professors of the highest grade, and build a valuable professional network while they study.


Our students are ambitious. They're driven to reach the top. So while a solid base of theoretical knowledge is important, actionable insight and experience is essential.

We select our professors for both their teaching excellence and their on-the-ground business acumen. When they're not at ISM, they can be found leading companies, teaching at top business schools around the world, and influencing the direction of international business practice.

Our small, interactive classes enable close-up access to our professors' expertise. And because our students are experienced professionals in their own right, they have the chance to share original insight and inform what happens in the classroom.
