Diversity in the class is really impressive. I remember one day when we were talking about having to mix up groups, and the teacher said that we will keep all the people from the same country in different groups. We said “Actually, we have none!” That day we had 18 people from 18 different countries so when you talk about diversity, it is really great here.

My time at ISM changed my life in that I changed careers from corporate consulting to academia. Partially due to ISM and thanks to the people I met through ISM, I am now Dean of an MBA program in Shanghai. My experience had a very positive impact in terms of results.
