International University of Monaco

About Us

The Monaco Business School at the International University of Monaco ( IUM ) develops successful and thoughtful leaders and entrepreneurs. We are the only university which provides a business education fully taught in English on the Cote D’Azur. With 60 nationalities represented in the student body and faculty, it is the premier institution for higher education in the Principality of Monaco.

What is the difference at IUM? We pride ourselves on our small class size, where students receive individual attention in their academic endeavors. There is a high-level of interactivity between professors and students, and we encourage innovative and creative thinking.

We encourage students to go beyond the theories and data taught in the lecture hall by using the skills learnt in real world situations. This allows them to develop strong analytical and cognitive skills which provide them with a foundation for their development as successful business people.


Students learn in a thoroughly multi – cultural environment, which brings together people from all over the world to share ideas, change lives and create opportunities on a global scale. Our students take with them a sense of who they are in the world of commerce, and pride in themselves as confident business people and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

Monaco is one of the top centers for business in Europe, as well as being renowned for being a safe environment. Our students graduate with the business skills, practical experience and personal development that will serve them for life. It is our mission to inspire the global generation.

We invite you to visit us, meet current students and faculty, and attend a class. We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about the International University of Monaco.
