When I chose to study at ISM's MA in Management, I did not expect that a business school could change my worldview. Such a transformation took place - together with knowledge came the ability to see new opportunities, enthusiasm, tools and like-minded people to implement new ideas. Here I realized that each of us has the power to change the world, and our career path is determined not only by knowledge and experience, but also by the ability to take responsibility for ourselves and others.

For someone who has not studied management before, studying ISM is like putting together individual pieces of a puzzle into a global, comprehensive, three-dimensional picture of an organization. It encourages critical thinking, a well-informed choice of leadership style, and provides courage and support for authenticity, as well as excellent tools for self-education and self-knowledge.

At the beginning of my studies, I was going to complete only one module, but I was pleasantly surprised by the teaching culture, the discussions taking place here, and the openness to sharing experiences. At ISM Executive School, I had the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and practice solving various business cases. The research papers turned out to be extremely valuable due to their pragmatic approach, moreover, continuous learning took place through communication with fellow students. So, instead of only one module, I completed the entire master's program. I am glad to have gained applicable knowledge and practices and to have built a new network of valuable relations!

I didn't come to ISM Management Master's for a diploma. We had already established Vinted and I saw it grow from a hobby project into a business. I felt that there was a lack of knowledge, especially in the field of marketing, for which I was responsible. Therefore, the choice of studies was completely practical - to get the highest quality, concentrated knowledge in the shortest possible time.

I graduated from ISM in 2009, for which I am eternally grateful. A bit of a slowdown is always a good time to refresh your knowledge and prepare for a new competitive battle.

I chose the "Strategic management" module in order to familiarize myself with the time-tested methods of long-term activity planning and learn to better identify the main criteria that determine the success of strategic choices. During the semester, the concentrated theoretical information was effectively supplemented by multifaceted discussions with fellow students in lectures and valuable contacts were made. I recommended that those looking for business and self-development opportunities take the time to take this course.

Over several years, more than 100 “Girteka Logistics” managers of different levels have deepened their knowledge in various ISM management skills development programs. ISM MA in management allows the company not only to motivate employees, develop expert managers, but also to grow its internal reserve of professional managers, to improve the internal company culture, to carry out activities taking into account the latest business trends, and to make decisions based on acquired theoretical and practical knowledge rather than just intuition.

Studies in our organization are important as a means of developing the managers’ competence and boosting their motivation. Each manager takes something different from the studies. For some it is new acquaintances and sharing experience, for some it is self-knowledge, for others yet it is professional growth or new competences acquired. Is the course of executive studies something that will add value to you and bring revenue? It depends on how successful you are in making the most of it. We are happy that the investment is paying off.
General manager of “Baltneta”
Employees at Lithuanian airports are the backbone of the entire business and this is not just an empty declaration. Managerial studies help to expand their competences. For instance, those who have not worked in the field of finance studied financial issues, while others delved into the intricacies of marketing, leadership, and strategy development. Broader competence allows managers from different departments to communicate much faster and more clearly. The entire mechanism of the company runs more smoothly, creating more synergy and value for the organization.
CEO of “Lietuvos oro uostai”
The main goal of our organization is to have managers who are open to new things, processes, and knowledge. Managers who have studied at the ISM become more self-confident, motivated, result-oriented, proactive and driven. The studies increase their appetite for change, and they want to share this spirit with their colleagues, share new practices, and their newly-discovered strong desire to grow and try. It makes you realize that you have to learn and evolve constantly - after all, something that worked five years ago probably won't work anymore today.
