Franklin's Master of Science in International Management program (MSIM) is excited to present a new structure for the upcoming Spring '23 semester, with the objective of enriching students' learning journey and empowering them to become responsible leaders.

This will be done through the implementation of an interdisciplinary approach with Franklin’s four Academic Divisions, having the academic content designed and delivered by Franklin’s faculty as well as international experts, and partners of the institution.

Eleven new courses in total, rooted in International Management, will be brought in, and taught by Franklin’s faculty coordinated by the Division of Business and Economics.

During the Spring '23 semester, students will take five key common courses and will also have two courses with content that is more specific to their concentration of choice. Then, students will move to six practical experiences developed thanks to institutional partners and will conclude their learning journey with a thesis.

The individual learning journey component of the program will be kept during the Spring semester, and students will have the opportunity to build their own learning plan with activities and projects related to their specific concentration, with the support and guidance of their concentration coordinator, represented by Franklin’s faculty.

We take the opportunity to thank our colleagues for taking this role to support the students throughout their learning journey: Professor Giulia Miniero for Arts Management; Professor David Suleiman for Digital Transformation; Professor Mario Schultz for Responsible Management and Climate Action.

On top of the academic courses and the individual learning components, the MSIM program will continue to collaborate with our key fundamental partners, including the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), SDA Bocconi School of Management, aSSIST, and more.

The new structure of the program is a remarkable opportunity for Franklin to bring the MSIM and the Master’s students closer to the rest of the community and build collective synergies.
