Executive MBA - Blended Methodology

Redirect your career potential with a highly flexible educational experience

OUR EXECUTIVE MBA, A UNIQUE BLENDED EDUCATIONAL FORMAT

Our Executive MBA isn’t only online—it’s blended.

Our blended methodology combines online lectures, forums, and activities, with face-to-face modules in various locations around the world. By bringing together the best of online and in-person courses, we provide our students with a unique, unconventional educational experience.

Our live interactive online classes are held on Saturdays to adapt to the needs of modern professionals. Instead of a conventional approach to online lectures, students participate in case study analyses to actively engage with the material. Your professors will create a stimulating learning environment in which you will feel encouraged to participate. Our technology contributes to this by featuring classmates as they participate, and dividing the classroom into smaller groups to discuss specific topics.

Within the online component of the course, we make room for face-to-face interaction with group work and case study analyses. Students present their group findings to the class, just as they would in a physical classroom. By participating in online forums, students are able to engage with their fellow classmates, pose meaningful questions, and respond to the professor’s comments and questions.

Our blended learning methodology truly sets the school apart. Cutting-edge technology, meticulously designed and impactful forum discussions, and our determination to engage students with innovative activities ensures that our Executive MBA provides an unforgettable experience.

Over the past 16 years, IE Business School has redefined quality online education with our blended learning methodology.
