International MBAAn MBA Out Of the Ordinary

WORLDWIDE Global MBA | QS 2018 Global MBA in Europe | Financial Times 2018



When you embark on the International MBA, you join one of the most diverse networks in the business world, with students from different academic backgrounds and sectors. Our students know that cultural differences are something to be celebrated. During the program, you will live an environment that transcends cultural differences to plant the seeds of unconventional thinking.

On top of this, we recently launched our BUDDieS & NEWBieS program, this initiative connects senior and junior IMBA students in order to maximize your social, academic and professional experience and provide different activities outside the classroom, allowing for additional networking opportunities, and encourage new students to exchange ideas with our school’s global community.

The aim is to smoothen your first weeks into the program besides strengthening the IE Business School community. A BUDDie is an International MBA student from a senior class who wants to connect with incoming students NEWBieS from the concurrent intake by providing support, friendship and guidance throughout their time together in program.



IE Business School is strongly committed to supporting the entrepreneurial projects of our students and alumni. Every year, more than 1,500 students receive training in Entrepreneurial Management at IE Business School.

In addition, our Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center takes this thinking far beyond the classroom. On campus we have our own incubator space, Area 31, which hosts dozens of start-up teams each year, and provides an inspiring physical space where students and local entrepreneurs can interact and share ideas. Off campus, IE hosts dozens of events around the world each year to bring IE to the world and the world to IE. We hope to see you at one soon!

The humanities represent an integral part of our identity, and therefore these academic disciplines are mandatory in all our programs. The humanities provide the intellectual content, breadth of vision, personal enrichment and well-informed perspectives needed for success in the current complex and competitive landscape.

Social Responsibility

How do you give back? Our students may come from all around the world, but they all share a commitment to leave the world a better place than they found it. In classes like Social Entrepreneurship and Business & Environment Strategy for CEOs, students explore traditional and novel approaches to solving enduring social and environmental challenges. You will have the chance to collaborate with key players in the world of Social Responsibility, through initiatives such as:

  • Joining Net Impact, the largest student club at IE
  • Organizing events with the IE Charity Club
  • Competing in the Impact Weekend Social Start-up Competition
  • Attending or volunteering at the annual Social Responsibility Forum
  • Connecting, learning, and realizing progressive ideas for a better world at The Impact Hub
