Tech-driven globalization has transformed the international professional landscape. This has created a demand for well-rounded leaders who are specialized in business and international development to create lasting value.

The Dual Degree Master in Management and Master in International Development trains holistic professionals prepared to impact change in this context. The highly customizable program begins with the Master in Management, where students explore the foundations of accounting, finance, operations and marketing, while also gaining access to practical, lab-based project development and other immersion experiences. With IE Business School’s expertise, networking opportunities and resources at their fingertips, students are challenged to grow as entrepreneurially minded professionals.

Building on these skills, the program continues with the Master in International Development. Each module focuses on the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, challenging students to apply sharp critical-thinking skills to devise innovative solutions that promote sustainable growth. As part of this Master, students take part in an immersive week-long trip to a UN operation to gain insight into the international organization’s inner workings. This level of frontline expertise is mirrored by the quality of the teaching staff, many of whom are industry professionals and UN staff members. Participants can also benefit from over 30 expert-led workshops and presentations, providing increased access to a diverse community of specialists, leaders and policymakers who can guide them on their professional journey.
