CURRICULUM

If you are looking to gain a global understanding of different cultures, team dynamics and business practices then our Global Executive MBA is for you.

During the face-to-face periods you will not only study our core courses but you will also integrate three interdisciplinary modules that add a very practical, immediately usable approach to you overall studies.

Thanks to the program format, the latest case studies, daily participation in online forums, and frequent group work will help you learn from what your peers are doing in their fields on a global scale. You’ll also be invited to share your expertise and experiences from your own industry, which will further encourage you to apply business concepts to your professional context as you learn.

The first residential period in Madrid allows cohorts to meet classmates and professors, establishing relationship bonds that will further develop throughout the program.

During the following three periods, students travel to Singapore, Los Angeles and Sao Paulo to immerse themselves in the various cultures and explore business aspects in each region. During these periods students will partake in classes with both IE and local partner faculty, company visits, workshops and cultural activities which will provide students with essential knowledge of how to apply global strategy at a local level.

During the final residential period in Madrid, students will present their final capstone projects, complete their final exams and participate in the graduation ceremony.
