Located in the Principality of Monaco, Monte-Carlo on the French Riviera, the International University of Monaco (IUM) is an English language University offering undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate degrees in business specialized in Finance, Luxury Goods and Services, and International Business. As a partner of the INSEEC Group, IUM also offers programs in Paris & London.
IUM provides a unique multi-cultural community of students representing 50 nationalities, an unparalleled business education environment in one of the world's leading business centers. In many ways, the International University of Monaco reflects the country where it is located: both are international microcosms, both are close-knit communities, and both are uniquely successful for their size.
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.

Trying to find your way in a Library could seem like finding your way through a maze or like being in the sanctuary of a cathedral. The awesome splendour and the gigantic sizes of some of the classical libraries may awestruck some readers while others glory in the grandeur. At IUM Library we radiate in the motto of small is beautiful, the same which has led students to gravitate to IUM due to the attraction of having small classes which espouse on individual attention.
The Library serves as an important research facility. We support your learning and research through the Library's online public access catalogue, availing print journals, reference services and online databases.
