Throughout the history of architecture there has been a general consensus that the best designs are those created by artists who are not bound by the many constrains of business and the real world. Contemporary architecture has proven, however, that excellence of design, although necessary, is not quite enough to ensure success. Most architects are entrepreneurs and vocational designers who need a specific management toolkit to build the career they want. In response to this scenario, the IE School of Architecture and Design has launched the Master in Architectural Management and Design in collaboration with IE Business School, a program that addresses the design implication of business decisions.

Letter from the Director

Dear prospective student,

Throughout the history of architecture there has been a general consensus that the best designs are those created by artists who are not bound by financial constrains of business.

However, contemporary architecture has shown that design excellence alone, although necessary, is not enoughto ensure success. Most architects are entrepreneurs and vocational designers who need a specific management toolkit to build the career to which they aspire. In response to this scenario, IE School of Architecture and Design developed the Master in Architectural Management and Design, in collaboration with IE Business School, to bridge the gap between advanced design and business management in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) field. The result is a program that addresses the design implications of business decisions and vice versa.

Located in Madrid, Ie Business School is considered one of the world’s leading business schools by international press such as Financial Times, The Economist and Wall Street Journal.
