Success Stories

“I looked everywhere, conducted extensive research, both home and abroad for an accredited executive MBA course I can complete online. After some further digging around, I found the best online course at ISM that already had enough experience supporting online learners. As a busy businessman, I appreciate the flexibility of the programme, which suited my busy life quite well. Overall, I am not grateful for my experience in such a top online course, but my strategic business alliances formed with faculty members and course mates have been instrumental in my success after the programme.”

Nasser Hassan

“I have had a number of online courses since my college days but I must say none of them has influenced my area of expertise in the ISM online MBA course. I credit my achievement in the areas of leadership, decision making, organisational behaviour management, and negotiation to this online course. I believe it’s one of the best online courses in UAE that every business leader should join for a change.”
