As global environmental change and technological shifts take place, companies, organizations, and governments require professionals who possess the business and international development expertise to tackle the mounting challenges. The Dual Degree International MBA and Master in International Development responds to this demand. With multidisciplinary training and opportunities for its real-world application, passionate and effective leaders can learn how to make a difference.
Students begin their IE journey with the International MBA, building a powerful foundation in the fundamentals, from managerial economics and operations to marketing and corporate finance. The program is highly customizable, allowing students to design their own academic journey by choosing from labs and other immersion experiences. With significant emphasis on entrepreneurship and leadership, students also strengthen their skills in these vital areas, opening the door to top-tier positions in any industry. As students are placed in the driver’s seat of their own education, they’ll have direct access to IE’s unparalleled academic teaching, resources, and networking opportunities.
The program continues with the Master in International Development, where students will have the unique opportunity to look closer at the UN’s strategies for change. Each module of the master’s program reflects a core element of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, inspiring students to critically rethink the world’s approach to development and design strategies for sustainable growth. The program includes a week-long immersion experience in a United Nations operation, offering students direct insight into the inner workings of this powerful organization. What’s more, the course is taught in part by industry practitioners and UN staff members, and includes over 30 workshops and presentations by experts in the field. From day one, students will join a highly diverse and dynamic community of specialists, leaders, and policy-makers, who all are on hand to guide students and help them achieve their goals—both inside the classroom, and beyond.
