PREPARING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS AND ENTREPRENEURS

Learning at IE Business School

OUR COMMITMENT FOR YOUR LEARNING

IE Business School is committed to educating the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs. With a world-class faculty, its programs are taught by leading academics as well as renowned practitioners who lead management innovation—both in research and international practice—within the disruptive world of business.

With teaching strategies that aim to develop core competencies in business, we employ innovative methods to further develop students’ entrepreneurial mindsets. As they learn to master business fundamentals, students also learn how to integrate general management perspectives in order to think beyond business.

Our strategies are practical and innovative. They shape both professionals and entrepreneurs with a personalized learning journey that empowers them to become leaders who generate impact and drive change.

LIQUID LEARNING

Following IE University’s Liquid Learning Model, IE Business School’s methodologies have become even more effective. This unique learning model provides an interactive and transformational experience—seamlessly blending physical, digital and natural environments to guarantee a world-class education, no matter where our students are.

OUR TEACHING METHODOLOGIES

Our hands-on and dynamic approach to learning is achieved through IE Business School’s diverse teaching methodologies, which include:

  • Our classes, whether on or offline, act as idea incubators, as we encourage our students to learn by exchanging perspectives and engaging in debates daily. Practical and career-focused, our programs promote concepts and theories linked to situations and decisions that companies face today. By engaging in business-oriented case studies, students learn to put ideas into practice and cutting-edge multimedia simulations allow them to apply their learning in real time, in teams or individually.

  • Mirroring work within a large corporation or a dynamic start-up, students participate in Innovation Labs and Consulting Projects, and these are just two of the many opportunities students have to interact with leading experts across various sectors.

  • To promote collaboration on real-world projects and in order to provide students with hands-on experiences in their chosen career path, students participate in a number of international competitions: Business Challenges, Start-up Competitions and Prizes in the Humanities. Competitions like these teach students to solve difficult, time-sensitive problems while simulating real-world experiences.

  • With our diverse student body, students finish the program having acquired an open and global mindset, which, consequently, teaches them to work in teams with people from all walks of life. Career success is not just about individual performance, but rather, highly effective collaboration and communication. With this in mind, IE Business School aims to foster the development of students’ interpersonal and behavioral skills.
