As one of the Germany’s leading universities of applied sciences, the International School of Dortmund (ISM) offers students a career-focused and goal-oriented education. All degree programs – Bachelor, Master and MBA – are international, practical and academically focused. In addition to professional and continuing education, the ISM supports regional and national business through applied research and knowledge transfer.
Its private, non-profit trusteeship guantees ISM autonomy as well as ensuring flexibility and the ability to act entrepreneurially. Moreover, the success of the university is made possible due to performance-driven students, qualified and motivated staff and engaged graduates.
We realize these claims by adhering to the following guidelines:
The curriculum and research of the ISM is primarily application-oriented so that graduates are in the position to apply their acquired industry knowledge in their professional every day life. This is made possible by lecturers whose courses reflect both their industry knowledge as well as their broad management experience and practical problem solving skills. In addition, students are able to deepen their acquired knowledge through internships in Germany and abroad. Finally, the close cooperation between ISM and the business community ensures an ongoing exchange of theoretical and practical knowledge.
Industry related foreign language skills, intercultural understanding and practical business experiences abroad are vital for success in today’s global business world. Study visits as well as internships in Germany and abroad ensure that ISM graduates are prepared to meet the demands of international companies. The ISM’s international cooperation with universities worldwide further facilitates the international exchange of students and lecturers.
