Integrating classroom instruction and academic thinking with authentic, experience-powered learning is what we do best at D’Amore-McKim. It’s an approach that expands your knowledge base, develops your creative mindset, and prepares you to meet the shifting demands of today’s business world.

As an MS in International Management student, you can expect experience to shape your learning and propel you in your career. Our unique “Make Your Case” consulting program headlines the available opportunities—you’ll tackle a real business issue faced by a company aligned with your career aspirations, building your storytelling and case-writing skills, polishing your problem-solving techniques, and giving you inside exposure to leaders in your chosen industry.

“I wrote a case study on a business in Barcelona that builds fire safety systems for companies in 40 countries worldwide. I analyzed whether the company should expand into the South African or the U.S. market. At the end of the project, I presented my analysis and recommendations as if I were her consultant. This project wasn’t just a hypothetical exercise—it took my education to a whole new level of realness.”
