    Hy everyone, I'm a 17 years old students from italy and I'm attending my penultimate year in an Italian high school. First of all, sorry for my english I still have a lot to learn... Currently I'm watching some universities to plan my future and I recognize that is very difficoult to find the right university... I would like to study subjects like international business administration or global management or ba or something like these. I'm searching a university very job oriented, with possesses strong carrer services, in which I can have big networking opportunies, sadly I'm not enought good in school to enter in a tier 1 university like harvard or similar and contemporaneously I don't like italian university system although it could allow me to enter in some prestigious universities like Bocconi, then, I'm watching around the world and, sadly, I have noted that is really easy to fall in scam universities or in such a lot low level colleges (like hult buisness school ,as I understand) where are released degrees that do not allow people to work at the highest levels and in the best companies in the world.
    So, just I have seen the International University of Monaco I have thinked that it could be the perfect university, small and exclusive, in Monaco that is a tax heaven where are concentred billions of euros. However, I have some doubts about the university:
    -their degree will allow me to work all around the world, then is it accreditated?
    -I've seen some discussion where are expressed conflicting opinions ( calcoulating that in 2012 the university was acquired in its entirety by the French educational group INSEEC, some reviews are older than 2012), :

    While I don't know how their graduates fare, they're accredited by AACSB and AMBA, so they're internationally recognized. Especially given the change of ownership, I would pay attention to recent reviews and not old ones.

    I took a couple of minutes and read through some of the discussions in the links you provided and there were a LOT of negative comments made about this school. Considering the fact that there are so many Business degree programs (at all levels) in the world, I'm wondering why you would seriously consider this school.

    I think he's attracted to the idea of spending a lot of time building connections in Monaco, which isn't a terrible reason. But then he could just as well attend a university in London and make connections in the City, so I suppose it's not like that's a unique advantage.

    Yes - IUM is fully owned by INSEEC. Last I looked, INSEEC in turn was owned by a US corporation - Career Education Corporation. At that time, these other schools were also owned by CEC:

    American InterContinental University
    Briarcliffe College
    Brooks Institute
    Brown College (That's NOT Brown University, of course - J.)
    California Culinary Academy
    Collins College
    Colorado Technical University
    Harrington College of Design
    International Academy of Design and Technology
    Le Cordon Bleu
    Missouri College
    Sanford-Brown

    you're willing to pass on the chance to go to Bocconi

    you'd rather go into a small and almost unheard of university to study (when there's so many other universities around the EU that have better branding and lower cost)

    so you can enter the 'highest level' in the field of management?

    OKAAAAAY
