This Dual Degree brings together IE Business School’s flagship postgraduate degree with a future-forward program from IE School of Human Sciences and Technology. In just 19 months, students will gain an extensive overview of the fundamentals of management in our globalized world, as well as expertise in digital technology and innovation.

The International MBA portion of this program centers on critical areas including corporate finance, managerial economics, marketing and business strategy. Our students can take the reins of their course and customize their educational journey, with a choice of various labs and immersion experiences to design the perfect path to your future career. This is a truly transformational program, taught with IE’s signature hands-on methodology to empower students to put their knowledge into practice from day one.

After completing the IMBA, students proceed to the Master in Digital Business and Innovation. This program quickly introduces students to vital topics that are building blocks for the remainder of the master, including programming, data structures and digital math. Once these foundations have been laid, students will move on to apply their knowledge to more advanced topics, such as AI, cloud and blockchain, and learn the real-life, practical techniques businesses use to design technology, from Design Thinking, Lean, Scrum and Agile. At each stage, you’ll gain even greater understanding of how to apply these tools and strategies to core business areas, including financial services and consumer goods. Upon graduating, you’ll possess a competitive combination of business and digital skills to lead teams in the organisation of your choosing.

  • IE has provided me with a holistic overview of today’s business, and taught me how to better understand not only the market, but also the non-market environment, as well as how to deploy different aspects of learning—such as corporate strategy, human resources and marketing—in order to build a sustainable, successful business.
