UNLEASHING THE POWER OF PURPOSE

When it comes to purpose, our aim is simple: to help you define, refine and align your unique sense of purpose with your goals, life and career. Finding meaning in what you do is a crucial way of enriching your career and gaining fulfillment from your work. However, drilling down into what that means to you and how to attain it is not so straightforward. In the Global Online MBA, we’ll work with you at every stage of that process: to figure out how you define purpose and how you challenge yourself; to understand what pursuits give you a sense of meaning; to analyze if your current career path is aligned with your sense of purpose; and to determine how you can harness your business skills to make a difference in a way that matters to you.

Our mission is to create a movement, led by a new generation of business professionals who understand that a better world is achievable and are working to attain it. We call it Business with Purpose because we believe being a professional brings its own responsibilities – to the planet, to society and to the wellbeing of others. In the Global Online MBA, we’ll help you to become that type of professional, in a way that aligns to what matters to you.

CHANNELLING YOUR PURPOSE IN THIS PROGRAM

PLANET

Understanding how better business practices can improve lives and protect the environment is one of the cornerstones of the Global Online MBA; we call this Sustainable Business.

As part of your program at IE Business School, you’ll learn about the key concepts that underpin Sustainable Business, including the energy transition, regenerative business, and how to apply sustainable practices to every function within an organization. Ensuring sustainability sits at the heart of business progress is part of our mission; we’ll show you the essential ways to make it part of yours too.

Society

Employing business skills to tackle social issues requires an entrepreneurial mindset. We call this Social Entrepreneurship, an approach designed to leverage the power of entrepreneurial thinking to find innovative solutions to enduring problems.

Overcoming challenges is integral to a career in business. The same skills that allow you to thrive under the pressure of a tight deadline or an impossible KPI can be brought to bear on the issues that affect us all. We’ll empower you to make an impact beyond the workplace and amplify the benefit you bring to society at large.

PEOPLE

At IE Business School, we believe the people you work with are as important as the results you deliver; we call this Working Well.

Shaping a positive, inclusive workplace focused on employee satisfaction is key to creating an environment where people can thrive. Graduates of the Global Online MBA understand that wellbeing is no longer a bonus but integral to any team’s success. We’ll help you become a business professional who recognizes the power of diverse, inclusive teams, who prioritizes the wellbeing of colleagues and harnesses the power of positive leadership.
