Executive MBA+ in English
An innovative and flexible design, tailored to suit you
The Executive MBA+ benefits from an innovative design with a structure divided into a Core Period and a Module. The Core starts in April or November and covers the areas innate to an MBA program. The Modules have various start dates and apply that knowledge to your area of interest. We offer various formats: face-to-face, part-time, bi-weekly, programs in English or Spanish. You are free to study the Module in a language or format different from your Core. This way your master becomes a bilingual and /or multi-format program and your network doubles. Duration of the program might vary from 15 to 17 months depending on the format chosen.
The part-time format provides all the training you would expect from an MBA, while allowing you to balance your studies with your professional obligations and personal life. Many students work outside of Madrid, or of Spain, and the bi-weekly format makes it easier for them to integrate an intense travel schedule, share their professional knowledge with their classmates and apply what they learn in class to their daily work.
The selection process and the degree that you get are exactly the same for the full-time and part-time programs. Admitted candidates are allowed to switch formats before they make a place reservation.
Please keep in mind that IE operates on rolling admission so there is no deadline date to submit the application. Currently we are accepting applications for both April and November intakes. We recommend that you initiate your application process as far in advance as possible.
Before beginning the masters program, students attend pre-programs online in Management Accounting and Financial Accounting, accessible via the IE Online Campus.
April Intake 2:
If you do not have prior experience in these areas, it is recommended that you complete the pre-programs in order to give you the best start when these subjects are taught during the master's.
The class sessions run on Fridays from 3:30 p.m. to 9:50p.m. and on Saturdays, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:50 p.m., every other weekend. There is also a 3-day intense residential period usually held in the middle of the program. Apart from attending classes, it is recommended that students allocate 15 hours per week to additional study. This includes group work (virtually or on campus) which is not only a fundamental part of the school's methodology, but also a key element in successfully completing the academic year.
