"In the more than 30 years of working with my company, I have relocated and changed jobs 12 times. I believe it was Sheryl Sandberg who said that “leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.» That is my mantra."
Gerhard Peter Gross, Daimler Financial Services | President & CEO
Graduation year: 1985
"Upon completing the MBA, I started my journey with Coca-Cola back in Colombia in 1997 as the Public Affairs & Communications Manager. Filled with wonderful experiences, my journey with the company continued, leading me to public affairs, communications and sustainability—an area I worked in for the Latin American and Asia-Pacific regions."
Pablo Largacha, The Coca-Cola Company | Vice President, Public Affairs, Communications & Sustainability
Gratuation year: 1992
"I am a leader and a fast-paced entrepreneur, and after completing the International MBA at IE Business School, I have developed a business mindset that is open to new and innovative ideas and approaches to solving problems. Professionally, I have high multicultural team management skills, and can communicate fluently in Chinese, Spanish and English. For me, my greatest accomplishment has been launching and directing AliExpress local strategy for Southern Europe."
Estela Ping Ye, Alibaba Group | AliExpress Senior Director Spain-Italy-Portugal
Graduation year: 2002
"The IMBA was the full package experience I was aiming for and more. It not only helped me obtain a bigger toolkit to my legal background but also has given me great friends and incredible experiences in and out of the classroom."
"Excellent education from top notch professors while studying alongside superbly qualified fellow classmates. The Global Online MBA program offered unparalleled diversity with students from vastly different countries and industries."
"The IMBA has by far been my most enriching experience as it not only gave me a huge professional impetus but reaffirmed my belief in what I do, in being proactive, in doing good and doing well. It has given me a deeper awareness of self and provided me with exposure to a truly international network wherein I understand and respect varied cultures much better than I ever did before."
"The blended program I took part in was the most enriching educational experience I have ever had. The visionary design of the courses and interactions of the students and faculty has made IE a leading innovator in the blended education field. It will take a lot of effort and experience to the rest of the top business schools to become proficient in this area, while IE is native to it."
"The program is like a big pot of spanish paella, where the cherry picked high achievers and leaders from a wide spectrum of professions and cultural backgrounds come together from around the globe, gathering under one roof, to learn from each other, cracking brains and exchanging ideas as a team to complete countless challenging assignments."
"IE’s Global Online MBA is an excellent option for those who want to do an MBA and not sacrifice their careers and family life (but it keeps you very, very busy). I am particularly pleased with the level of the class which creates excellent cross-exchange of knowledge and experience!."
"What makes the program so special is the fact that we are all here because we are ready for the next step in our personal and professional path… I am sure that most of us will stay connected for a long time after we finish. Once we have started this brotherhood and friendship relationship, we look after each other as long as needed and beyond."
"A very rich experience thanks to its great diversity and professionalism."
"My classmates are excellent executive professionals coming from very different business sectors, with high profiles and relevant experience. Together we could add a multitude of perspectives to the class discussions. This was an incredible and unique added value. An incredible experience of team working and healthy competition."
"In a class of 32, we had 22+ different nationalities and each group had 5-6 members spread around the world. Adjusting to the time zones to meet regularly to discuss group and individual work is a wonderful experience and this is what happens in today’s business environment where you have teams spread around the world. Frankly, I never expected a blended program to be this intense."
