On October 7th, IUM celebrated its 30th anniversary with its alumni at the terrific Monaco Yacht Club.
The International University of Monaco is an international institution dedicated to educating business leaders through programs based on a global focus, entrepreneurial spirit and a humanistic approach.
To celebrate IUM’s 30th anniversary, it was a pleasure to see such a big turnout of Alumni, friends and benefactors of the university. In total 270 people attended this cocktail reception. Flying in from all over the world, shows how over time, graduates have been able to make an impact or a contribution to the international corporate world. As for those who are local or who have become local… well, we see their faces quite often anyway! The IUM staff and faculty also joined the party to get an update on what success looks like through the eyes of their former students.
Even a legend who was part of the first batch of students graduating in 1988 was present, talk about “Jurassic park institution.”
The International University of Monaco opened its doors in 1986 with 35 students enrolled in two programs (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and MBA). Since then, a lot has been achieved. More recently, a new course in Yachting Management has been launched within the MSc in luxury Management program in cooperation with the Yacht Club of Monaco. We believe that this is the only serious course of this nature in the world. Talk about achievement and spearheading modern education.
“30 years after its opening, the International University of Monaco offers four specializations at the Bachelor level, five master programs (finance, luxury and management with several tracks), an AMBA accredited MBA and a DBA and welcomes now more than six hundred students.”
On Friday, remembering the good old days, gave way to a lot of banter, between old and new generations, and am sure new friendships were formed over the course of another successful evening. For many, the IUM Alumni Community is still a big family, and has many successful years ahead.
