All MIM programs combine intensive business coursework in traditional functional disciplines – marketing, finance, accounting, technology, human resources, entrepreneurship, and strategy – with the added possibility of a professional experience in New York City. Courses are offered on a quarterly basis with up to six (6) courses per quarter. The academic component of each MIM program can be followed by an Internship professional experience of equal duration in a company in the New York City area.
The Internship component of the program involves analyzing a company, government, not-for-profit organization, or an industry. The Internship enables student team members to apply what they have learned through the program to a real business problem or opportunity. It will enable students to gain practical business exposure and to hone their skills in teamwork, intelligence gathering and analysis, presenting and selling their ideas. As much as possible, MIM helps its students find internships in an industry that prepares them for entry-level positions and/or that will help them build their future professional careers. The program prepares graduates for entry-level positions.
Thanks to the integration of the academic theory with pragmatic professional experience, these programs can provide the student with an active, hands-on approach to understanding the global environment. Upon successful completion, MIM students are better prepared to compete in a global and technology-driven marketplace for careers in international business, trade, and finance. MIM graduates receive a Certificate of Completion and should be able to:
- Identify successful management practices needed to compete in the global economy

- Develop and direct teams drawn from international backgrounds
- Plan strategic growth and expansion into global markets
