TESTIMONIALS

"It is great that IMI is not too big, the classes had the perfect size, so that the teachers were actually able to pay attention to everyone in class. "

Nina Fleischle

from Germany , graduated in 2011

It was a very work-intensive time but I learned a lot about myself and I gained a good theoretical basis, which I then could deepen and expand through several internship experiences. My first position was as a Finance Futura Management Trainee with Starwood (at the Le Méridien Parkhotel in Frankfurt, Germany) which is a great programme to pave your way for a career in Finance. After that I worked as the Assistant Director of Finance for the Sheraton Complex in Zürich.

I have decided to leave hospitality for the time being and to further pursue my career in the field of Controlling rather than Accounting. I am working for a retail company at the moment (HUGO BOSS) which is a great challenge and where I am learning so many new things every day.
