THE WAY YOU LEARN
At IE Business School we are passionate about reimagining education. Our international faculty is comprised of entrepreneurs, executives, academic experts and authors published in top journals. Many IE Business School professors have held executive positions in start-up companies or multinationals. They bring intellectual diversity and different perspectives of the business environment to the classroom to create a rich and challenging business program.
This world-class faculty teach the most cutting edge management techniques available and do this using the most up-to-date and exciting educational methods and resources.
CASE METHOD - REAL BUSINESS KNOWLEDGE
Each area of business is studied using practical cases, most of which deal with real problems that may arise in any type of company. Cases are first prepared individually, then in groups before being discussed in class under the guidance of the professor. Students have the opportunity to debate and prepare cases using one of the numerous group work rooms at IE Business School.
MAKE A TEAM - PLUG INTO DIVERSITY
Master in Management students are divided into small work groups which are carefully formed with attention to the different nationalities, training, backgrounds and experiences of their members to ensure diversity. This kind of group work is an essential preparation for future professionals in management positions. These groups change every term, ensuring maximum networking opportunities.
INNOVATIVE & INTERACTIVE LEARNING
We make a wide range of multimedia tools available to our students: simulators, interactive graphics, videos and podcasts, as well as completely interactive case studies and technical notes. This innovative use of media supports different learning styles and makes content easier to absorb for all types of learners.

MADRID FOR YOU
Madrid is one of the most popular cities in Europe for Gen Z travelers, and is one of the most student friendly cities in Spain, with a great, affordable public transport network, cool underground culture and fabulous nightlife. But Spain’s capital is also home to international companies of the stature of Google, Microsoft and Apple, creating a myriad of opportunities for a professional experience.
Our Master in Management takes place in the heart of Madrid, placing you right in the center of the action in this bustling, breathtaking global city. Madrid is in a league of its own and provides the perfect backdrop for rounding off a unique educational experience.
REASONS TO STUDY OUR MASTER IN MANAGEMENT IN MADRID
MADRID IS STUDENT FRIENDLY
Madrid’s residents and local government appreciate the value students bring to the city and you are sure to be given a warm welcome. Whether you are on our central campus, visiting any of the world-class museums or out enjoying a cold drink and tapas on a sunny terrace, you will always feel at home in Madrid.
MADRID IS CULTURE
One of the oldest cities in Europe, there is so much to explore. Whether it is ancient history, modern art, classical music or flamenco dance, you will find a range of activities to suit your interests and your budget. Film buffs shouldn’t miss the Cine Doré, a beautiful cinema that is home to Spain’s film institute, tasked with preserving the country’s films, which screens films from around the world, many in English, with tickets a bargain at €2.50.
MADRID IS NATURE
Hiking, skiing, mountain biking… these activities are all possible within 45 minutes of the city center. La Pedriza, Cotos or the Guadarrama mountains and nature reserve offer the best hiking territory, and there are even small refuges in case you decide to head off for longer.
MADRID IS GREAT FOOD
Paella and tapas are international words, and Spain has a strong culinary tradition with eating out an affordable option for all. But don't forget to go local and sample 'cocido madrileño', a stew made with pork, chicken and beef, served with chickpeas.
MADRID IS SPORT
The Spanish are great lovers of sport, and the capital is no exception. The city has two local teams in the Champions League – Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid – but there are all sorts of other sports you can enjoy when studying abroad in Madrid, from hockey and netball to handball and athletics.
MADRID IS FRIENDLY AND DIVERSE
Madrid is a very multicultural city and prides itself on its openness to all people, with no discrimination due to gender, sexual orientation, religion or race. Lavapiés and Malasaña are probably the most multicultural neighborhoods to head for if you want to experience the city’s rich cosmopolitan maelstrom of influences from all corners of the world.
MADRID IS LIFE
Chilled-out roof top terraces with a view, cavernous underground bars, cool clubs, festivals, flamenco tablaos, music. Madrid has what it takes to have fun.
