Reach Your Career Goals

The iMSM is versatile in nature and allows you to pursue a range of different careers depending on the electives you choose to take. Receive the same high-quality education as on-campus students from industry-experienced instructors.

The program is designed for professionals at any stage in their careers. The highly engaging curriculum allows you to interact with students from all around the world and understand global challenges and opportunities in business from varied perspectives.

Many business schools measure job placement after graduation. At Gies, where virtually all of our iMSM students already have jobs, we ask our new graduates to tell us how many of them received a promotion or accepted a job with a new employer. 42% of iMSM graduates have reported that they started a better job upon graduation which is an immediate ROI of a Gies iMSM degree.

At a time when many professionals have come to expect a 2 percent raise in a good year, Gies iMSM graduates tell us they received an average raise of 28% during and immediately after their iMSM program, an instant and concrete return on investment that is hard to match.

Our iMSM attracts learners from organizations that range in focus and size, from Fortune 500s and fresh startups to small businesses and non-profits. You'll benefit from meeting people on a range of career paths, whether you're interacting through class discussions and projects or connecting through our social network. 700+ companies and 651+ job titles are represented across the class profile.
