“Facing the rapid globalization of mar­kets, the IFM MBA curriculum provides essential tools for understanding. Orga­nized around classes with fewer num­bers of students, the MBA program at IFM favors interaction and exchange.”

Eric Bara, General Director, Hautbois, France

“Professors at IFM were able to use their own expertise to boost lessons, that is something that I really liked. I had the chance to get a new job after finishing my EMBA and I am approaching the new role and new responsibilities in a more rational way and a better understanding of my knowledge.”

Diego Tomassone, Commercial Director International, Miller Chemical & Fertilizer, Switzerland
