Then we’ll curate a career-focused journey so you'll get the exact set of skills that recruiters want from you. Where might you go next? Have a look...

YOUR IMPACT

Impact means making big things happen... at work and beyond. Having real impact comes down to who you are, how you think, and how you behave in real situations, with real people, in the real world. Transforming yourself is hard work, but if you’re open to change and new mindsets, you'll make it happen with the help of your classmates and professors. That’s a promise.

THINKING SKILLS

Business is about solving problems and running projects… tough ones, the ones that status-quo-lovers will say can’t be handled. Acquire and fine-tune durable skills—like problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, and project management—and you’ll boost your potential for a big impact in the workplace. We’ll give you the chance, are you ready to transform your mind?

BEHAVIORAL SKILLS

There’s nothing like a diverse business team, a tough challenge and a short deadline to create turbulence and friction. And that’s exactly how we help catalyze your growth. We offer you a challenging but safe lab where you can experiment with new behaviors, new ways of working, new ways to sell yourself and your ideas, and new mindsets that will boost your capacity for impact.

DIGITAL SKILLS

Talk to any hiring manager today, and you’ll hear that any business role with impact requires you to be digitally fluent. So love it or hate it, you need to be able to collect, organize, analyze, and visualize data to make your case and sell your ideas. So we’ll help you roll up your sleeves and become a digital-business professional.

YOUR PURPOSE

We invite you to join us in a new movement led by a new generation of business professionals working to forge a new and better world. Are you in? We call it Business with Purpose because we believe being a business professional carries responsibilities—to our planet, to society and to the well-being of others. We’ll offer you the chance to become that type of professional in a way that aligns with your unique purpose.

SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS

Good business practices offer hope for improving our lives and environmental conditions on this planet. Studying business at IE Business School means understanding key concepts about regenerative business, energy transition and sustainable practices across every function in the organization. This is part of our mission, and perhaps it will be part of yours too.

SOCIAL INNOVATION

There’s nothing like a diverse business team, a tough challenge and a short deadline to create turbulence and friction. And that’s exactly how we help catalyze your growth. We offer you a challenging but safe lab where you can experiment with new behaviors, new ways of working, new ways to sell yourself and your ideas, and new mindsets that will boost your capacity for impact.

WORKING WELL

If the people you work with are as important to you as the results you deliver, IE Business School is a great place for you. We believe that great professionals and great leaders create business climates in which everyone can thrive. That means understanding well-being, positive leadership practices, and the power of diverse and inclusive teams. We call this Working Well—and we want it to be part of the DNA of every professional we graduate.
