ISM introduced me to the essential principles of business and management. Yet, I am most grateful for the people I met. Ambitious and intelligent students and authoritative professors served as motivation and a driving force, inspiring me to aim for more.

Today, everything seems simple. Everything seems easy. A career in three months, workation straight from the hammock, and work tasks accompanied by nothing but good vibes. It’s easy to be captivated by this vision, and even easier to be disappointed. However, those who have accomplished much in life understand that true success is attained by those who do not opt for the easiest paths but are willing to work and fight fiercely. Not against others, but against themselves.

ISM is designed specifically for such determined intellect adventurers. It’s a realm of science for those who understand that achieving results may require rolling up their sleeves and, at times, diving headfirst into challenges. No, we won’t offer a pre-prepared escape route each time, but a strong and supportive community – always. This will inspire the pursuit of knowledge and openness to innovation. Most importantly, it encourages not giving up after the first failure, and even more so after the tenth.

For those aspiring to professional heights – those aiming for more – ISM promises to be both a motivating challenge and a strong support. Be ready to move forward.

"ISM alumni not only have fundamental theoretical knowledge, but are also used to dealing with practical business tasks. They are able to assess whether an idea would work in practice, they also have a broad worldview and can think beyond the prism of one function, area or country. They see and analyze the wider context. In addition, these are employees who are characterized by proactivity, critical thinking, good time management and conscientiousness. The solutions presented by ISM students are often unconventional and outside the box".

Close Relationship with Business

In classes, students constantly tackle current business issues. Our students even complete internships in companies twice during their studies to better discover what suits them. The result? Business representatives highly value ISM students and alumni!
As an ISM student, I participated in visits to top Vilnius companies, including EY Lithuania, where I now work. These visits helped me build connections, explore career options, and showcase my skills to my current employer.

What makes ISM special?

Located in the Heart of Vilnius

We’ve revitalized a historic building right in the heart of Vilnius. Here, in the lively Gedimino Avenue, you’ll find some of Lithuania’s largest companies and institutions. From the terrace where our community enjoys coffee together, you’ll have a breathtaking view of Gediminas’ Tower!
The campus is truly inspiring. I believe that having the opportunity to view the beautiful architecture in this location through G7’s large windows is incredibly motivating for students to pursue their goals.

Life at ISM

What makes ISM special?


Right here in the heart of Vilnius, you’ll feel like you’re abroad, as ISM boasts many international professors, and your fellow students come from various countries around the world. Here, you’ll build a strong international network. And if you wish, you’ll have the opportunity to earn a double degree with universities in France or Norway.
One of the strongest things I took away from ISM is the belief that I can achieve anything I want. Because during your studies you get to meet people from various cultures, you quickly learn that you have a lot more opportunities and don’t necessarily have to limit yourself to one market, such as Lithuania, for example.
