Short courses

Would you like to experience studying abroad, but do not feel like leaving for the whole semester? Do you think that a week or two in another country or even studying online would be a better fit for you? Then have a look at the numerous short-term opportunities offered by ISM partner universities. Here you will find summer and winter school programmes, business projects competitions, short-courses and online webinars from all around the world.

Advantages of short-courses:

  • Opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in a particular field you are interested in
  • Making new connections
  • Collecting additional ECTS credits (included in diploma supplement)
  • Gaining international experience

Fees, application and outcomes


Most of the short-term programmes are paid and require the participants to cover admission and/or tuition fees. Some universities apply a tuition fee waiver for students nominated by their partner universities. You can find more information on the fee of each short-term programme in their brochures or websites.


If you are interested in participating in one of the short-term programmes please contact ISM International Studies Office as some programmes require nomination from partner university. You will have to apply according to the requirements of each particular program.


After completing the short time programme or course the receiving institution will provide you with a Transcript of Records. It will serve as a proof of your successful completion of the programme and indicate the number of ECTS credits you have collected. You will have to send the ToR to ISM International Studies Office, so that your short-term exchange is validated and included in your diploma supplement.


Fangrui Xu
Second-year Financial Economics student who spent an exchange semester at BI Norwegian Business School, Norway
Overall of my education experience, I have ventured far from home. Just because of that, I had a chance to see more about this world and my life with a unique viewpoint that I feel can bring value anywhere. Thanks for this opportunity.
Karolis Stramkauskas
Fourth-year Industrial Technology Management student who spent an exchange semester at WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, Germany
An exchange is not only a journey for meeting new people and seeing new countries, it is also a journey of self-improvement and self-discovery. The exchange experience will forever remain not only in my photo album, but also in my mind.
Mariia Nikandrova
Third-year International Business and Communication student who spent an exchange semester at IÉSEG School of Management, France
Everyone knows that exchange = new places + new people + new experiences. However, not everyone comprehends how deep your leap is into another culture. At the same time, it’s amazing how much better you begin to understand your culture and value its uniqueness. I could not be more grateful to ISM for this opportunity!
