Through our virtual campus, you get a challenging and highly interactive educational experience. The strategically structured, live faculty-led sessions are designed to fit into your busy schedule and can be accessed anywhere there’s an internet connection. Engage with other global professionals in synchronous and asynchronous sessions including interactive small groups where you work on real-world, industry-based case studies.
On Saturdays, you will engage in virtual discussions that vary depending on the topic determined for that day. These sessions are truly an extension of the traditional classroom experience, allowing you to negotiate and collaborate with your classmates and professors in the same classroom, despite the fact that you’re participating from different parts of the globe.
Connect anytime, anywhere. The forums offer the possibility to participate in the faculty-led asynchronous sessions every week from Monday to Thursday. Professors will moderate these written discussions about chosen topics in order to help you achieve the desired learning objectives.
After getting to know your classmates virtually, you will be able to meet them in person through all-day workshops and classes that further develop your soft skills and teamwork. You’ll get the most out of an in-person experience, but we understand that some people’s circumstances might call for 100% online participation. Either way, we encourage you to take advantage of Madrid after class and join all the different networking events available every night.
Participate in an optional face-to-face week around the world to discover a new destination and learn about the local business environment and interact with other IE cohorts from some of our other MBA programs.
