The IE Admissions Department conducts a rigorous recruitment process to select students among the large number of candidates applying for admission by choosing dynamic, motivated, creative, candidates with high potential, who excel  not only in their academic and professional lives but also through their interpersonal skills.

Online application

The online application will allow us to get to know you and to decide if you are a suitable candidate for this program. During this process  you will have the opportunity to attach all  documentation required.  You can save your application at any time throughout the process, it will not be reviewed by the Admissions Committee until it has been submitted and the application fee has been paid.
Admissions requirements:

  • University Degree and Transcripts
  • A minimum of three years of post-graduate professional experience
  • IE Global Admissions Test (ieGAT) or equivalent (GMAT or GRE)
  • English track: Non-native speakers are required to provide an English language certificate (TOEFL, Pearson PTE Academic, IELTS or Cambridge CAE/CPE)
  • Online application
  • 2 Letters of Recommendation
  • Work Verification Letter
  • Work Organizational Chart
  • Passport copy
  • Passport photo
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • 3 Essays


Those candidates who have completed and submitted their online application  and pass the initial evaluation made by the Admissions Committee, will be invited to a personal interview. During this phase all submitted documents  will be examined in close detail to assess whether the candidate's profile meets the program requirements, and whether he/she will therefore add value to the class, as well as develop their own skills and knowledge and gradually, themselves. Since the interview is an essential element in the admissions process,it is recommended it be conducted in person. If a candidate  does not have the opportunity to come to our campus in Madrid, he/she has the option to attend the interview via video (Skype), in coordination with an IE event, or with a representative from one of IE's 25 offices worldwide.

Final decision

Once the interview has been completed, the Admissions Committee will evaluate all aspects of the application as a whole and will make its final decision: 

1. Unconditional Admission -  will be granted to applicants who have met all the requirements and whose profile fits the program.

2. Conditional Admission - will be given to applicants who have the right profile but have not yet met all of the requirements. Once this last step is completed, the Unconditional Admission will be granted . 

3. No Admission -the candidate does not fit the profile of the class.

The admission to a program is valid for 2 intakes, the one for which the candidate applies, and the next one. Admission does not guarantee a place in the requested intake, so it is recommended to secure a place through a place reservation as soon as possible.
