Awesome!

After graduating, I had many opportunities coming in. I would say IMU has really helped me a lot, even thought the workload is heavy and stress is common, but the people and culture in IMU is amazing!

Busy University Life

I enjoy the study environment, the study experience and my friends here. My advice for incoming students would be to be prepared to be overwhelmed by stress. Try to reduce it by doing things consistently rather than everything at once during the last moments.
