This Dual Degree combines IE Business School’s flagship International MBA with the cutting-edge Master in Customer Experience and Innovation. In just 19 months, it provides a comprehensive perspective of the fundamentals of management in today’s globalized world, plus an in-depth look at how to revolutionize the customer experience through the design of products, services and brands.
The International MBA portion of the program focuses on essential subjects such as accounting, managerial economics and corporate finance, and then allows students to customize their journey through labs and international exchanges. In other words, if you choose the International MBA, you’ll be able to take the reins of your own education—while still benefiting from the full extent of IE University’s rigor and resources.
After completing the International MBA, you’ll move on to the Master in Customer Experience and Innovation. This part of the program revolves around business, technology and human-centered design, forming a skill set that will allow you to truly innovate. You’ll delve into strategic design, research methods and insights, prototyping, storytelling and physical and digital spaces for innovation. Upon graduation, you’ll be well versed in both the core aspects of international business and the cutting-edge trends of customer experience—a combination that will automatically place you ahead of the pack.
