FIRST YEAR

Throughout your first year, you will be building your conceptual toolbox. Your classes will provide you with a comprehensive introduction to economics, mathematics, management, marketing and technology, as well as financial and cost accounting. First year students also have ample opportunity to take on extracurricular activities through IE Labs and our many social impact projects.

SECOND YEAR

Your second year of study is your chance to deepen your knowledge of management and operational procedures in different organizations. Through classes like Management Control, Business Decision Making and Accounting for Decision Making, you will start to examine how business functions impact performance. Dive into the world of market research while assessing techniques and strategies to understand consumer behavior. Internship opportunities become available during second year, so keep your eyes open!

THIRD YEAR

Third year marks a new focus on developing strategic management skills in classes like Production and Operations Management, HR Management and Management Information Systems. In the classroom, you will also start working on the soft skills you will need to become a successful corporate manager. Third year students often participate in exchange programs and spend a semester at one of our many prestigious, international partner institutions.

FOURTH YEAR

Your fourth year of study will in large part be dedicated to working on your final project. After deciding on a topic and presenting your proposal, you will research and develop your project, which will culminate with a presentation at the end of the year. Choose from a wide range of electives, specializing in either finance, entrepreneurship or marketing.
