As societies evolve and the global affairs landscape continues to change, today’s companies and organizations need professionals who are well versed in both business and global affairs to take the helm and help them adapt.This Dual Degree combines the International MBA and the Master in International Relations in order to fill this demand, providing the rigor and real-world experience needed to shape the leaders of tomorrow.

If you choose to rise to this challenge, you’ll begin your IE journey with the IMBA, building a strong foundation in the fundamentals of business, management, economics and finance. You’ll strengthen your existing leadership skills, opening the door to high-level positions in your chosen industry. You’ll also be able to personalize the program by choosing from various labs, international exchanges and hands-on experiences to enrich your learning experience and advance your own aspirations.

You’ll then take on the MIR, adding multidisciplinary knowledge in languages, humanities, politics, technology and more to your professional profile. In addition to international business and economics, the MIR focuses on global affairs foundations, comparative regional studies and social entrepreneurship and development. You’ll be exposed to a highly diverse community of classmates, instructors and mentors, and have the chance to gain hands-on real-world experience. After just 19 months, you’ll be ready to re-enter the professional world, take a decisive step forward in your career and truly make a difference in the international business world and beyond.
