The IE Admissions Department makes a rigorous selection among the large number of candidates who apply: selecting dynamic, creative, high-potential profiles who stand out by their academic and professional achievements as well as interpersonal skills. All applications for the February and September 2016 intakes that we receive from the 1st of April to the 31st of May will be considered for the Priority Admissions process. Participate in Priority Admission and you will receive your final admissions decision maximum within one month, allowing you to plan early on and kick-start your studies.

The online application is your cover letter
The admissions process starts upon your submission of the online application along with the supporting documents.
The application provides the Admissions Committee with key foundations when it comes to evaluating candidates. It is therefore essential that you use this opportunity to present information based on thorough examples that you think make you a unique addition to the IE family regarding relevant academic and professional achievements, together with concerns, aspirations and motivations that are aligned with the IE culture and core values.
It will take roughly 3 weeks for the Admissions Committee to review your file and provide you with initial feedback.
You are able to work on or review your online application at any time, as the content will only become available to the Admissions Department upon submission.
The interview examines the data provided in the application in greater detail and evaluates whether your profile will meet the demands of the program and add value within the class discussion and group work.
Should the Admissions Committee grant you an interview upon the review of your application, you will be contacted to schedule an interview in person, whether in Madrid or in your country through one of our offices. In the case you are based in a country where we do not have an office and you are not able to come to Madrid for the interview, we can also schedule a skype interview for you.
However, if you are close by and have the opportunity to come on campus, we highly recommend it, as you can combine it with an event on campus and imagine your Master in Management experience here in Madrid!
Following the interview and upon review of your entire application, the Admissions Committee will make its final decision based on the evaluation of your candidature as a whole. A final decision communication is typically 3 weeks after the interview has taken place, considering all documents have been received.
If the Admissions Committee feels you do not meet the profile we are looking for, then you will directly be denied admission to the program. Should this occur, you will only be eligible to reapply after 2 years have elapsed.
- Your admission is valid for the intake you have applied and the following.
