Alumni Testimonials

Lambert Diacono Lambert Diacono, French, BSBA 2016 Professional Basket Ball player with AS Monaco

I appreciate the small class size. It gives me the opportunity to ask questions and to interact with the professors easily. Also, when I miss some classes due to my professional life, it’s easy to ask classmates for updates or professors for explanations. I find our professors approachable and available, especially for my particular circumstances, they are aware of my situation and they do their best to accommodate my personal situation.

I have also discovered a passion for finance…which was not expected at all but I think I have found my career path.

Make the most of your time at IUM, take advantages of all the opportunities given to students: conferences, career development, sport activities, networking events. Open your eyes, keep your mind alive, learn from others from other countries/cultures to differentiate yourself on the job market.

Florian Dumont Florian Dumont, French, BSBA 2011 EMEA Online Revenue Analyst, Hootsuite Media Inc., London, UK

I started my BSc in Business Administration program in 2008 and I discovered that IUM is more than just a business school. IUM is a small university, located in a small country that has a concentration of international businesses (5000 companies on 2sqm). Being the only higher level learning institution surrounded by so many international companies offer many learning and career opportunities.

IUM is an exciting business itself. It is growing, improving, and innovating all the time, which offers many opportunities for students to really contribute to the organization. It’s a fantastic playground for an entrepreneurial spirit. For instance, I find it way more interesting for a student to create an association which does not exist rather than just participate in a traditional university association which has been existing for the past 20 years and has more entrenched processes. The lessons learnt during the creation process and the rewards in terms of experience and self-development is extremely valuable.

IUM opens your mind on working with different cultures, and challenges your way of thinking.

IUM has taught me to think “outside the box”, always pushing me to question what I had previously seen as the unchangeable established way of doing things. This is has been fundamental to my roles. I always try to find solutions to accomplish tasks in a more effective manner, always questioning and submitting suggestions to improve our processes and funnels.

Going to IUM, you are in charge of what you will gain while in Monaco.

You can decide to just go to class, take your exams, graduate without taking advantages of all that IUM and Monaco have to offer. Or you can decide to make the most of your three years at the university, making friends for life, networking, building something, and investing yourself in your studies and all extra-curriculum opportunities you are offered. It’s hard not to succeed afterwards.
