The International University of Monaco is a private institution of higher education founded in 1986 in the Principality of Monaco. Its program portfolio includes Bachelor, Master of Science, MBA, and DBA degrees. It focuses mainly on those areas of expertise closely associated with Monaco: the management of high value-added service activities, especially in the luxury and finance sectors. This approach has allowed IUM to differentiate itself and achieve continuous growth, with student enrollment figures increasing from 300 students in 2010 to 750 in 2022. Integration within the OMNES Education, the French leader in private higher education, has undoubtedly contributed to this evolution. Notwithstanding this growth, IUM, much like the Principality of Monaco itself, remains an intimate, human-scale business school with a profoundly multicultural outlook.

OMNES Education is a private multidisciplinary higher education and research institution working in the fields of Management, Engineering, Communication & Digital Media and Political Science, based in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Rennes, Chambéry-Savoie, Abidjan, Barcelona, Geneva, London, Monaco, Munich, Montreux and San Francisco, which trains 30,000 students and 5,000 managers every year.
