Q: How many hours of study are required per week for the Global Executive MBA?

A: On average, students spend between 30 to 35 hours a week studying, including time spent working in the forums as well as group work and individual reading. Students must allocate 2-4 hours each day during weekdays and the rest during weekends.

Q: How can executives with 50-60 hr weeks complete this program?

A: The key is consistency. Students must ensure they dedicate 2-4 hours a day to the program. This time can be split across the day; it does not have to be all in one sitting. The time that you normally use to listen to music, watch TV, etc. is now precious time for the MBA. Commute times, travelling periods, lunch breaks and evenings will become essential. This program will make you the best time-manager in your company.

Q: How are students evaluated during the MBA?

A: Academic evaluation is based on three pillars:

– Class participation: During forum discussions and videoconferences, students are evaluated on an ongoing basis. Every bit of contribution, whether it be written or spoken, is considered.

– Individual assignments: Students will be asked to participate in quizzes, individual papers or evaluated homework.

– Group assignments: As a part of a small team, students will have to prepare presentations, research or papers, which are all evaluated.

Q: What degree will I receive after completing this program?

A: Upon completion of the Global Executive MBA, the official degree awarded is a Master of Business Administration (the word online or Blended will not be mentioned on your diploma) by IE University, which entitles you to future developments such as a PhD. Students who complete the GXMBA are awarded the same degree as those students who complete full-time programs at IE.
