Originally founded in 1990 as IDB-Wirtschaftsakademie in Dortmund by Klaus Evard, it was renamed the International School of Management (ISM) in 1992. In 1994 it was recognized as a private university of applied sciences. The company shares were taken over in 1998 by ESO Education Group.
In 2006, in accordance with the Bologna Process, ISM switched the Diploma courses to Bachelor and Master courses.
On September 2019 the ISM established a campus in Berlin. The campus is located in the heart of Berlin Schöneberg and combines culture, cosmopolitanism and innovation. As the capital of Germany, Berlin is an important international business metropolis and political center. Therefore, the city is an attractive location for companies from all sectors.
