A transformational impact
IESEs MBA program is based on four key approaches that ideally prepare graduates to excel in the global business environment.
General Management PERSPECTIVE
IESEs MBA builds a solid foundation for all students by covering core business subjects during the first year and offering a wide range of electives in the second year. The use of business case studies is a critical component of IESEs dynamic learning approach under the guidance of the well-trained faculty. Students analyze more than 600 cases during the program, immerse themselves in real-life business challenges and carry out in-depth analysis.

Leadership and Ethics


Ethics and the impact of business decisions on people inside and outside the company are interwoven into every IESE course. This is in keeping with IESEs overarching goal to help develop global business leaders who can make a positive impact on companies and society through their professionalism, integrity and spirit of service. Moreover, a firm grasp of business ethics is becoming increasingly important for leading companies successfully and sustainably.

A TRULY INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE


Students interact with people from more than 56 different countries during the case discussions in the classroom and also hear the contributions of the international faculty. The International Exchange Program and the international modules in the second year give students the opportunity to experience life at another top-tier school. The Exchange Program is based on their academic performance in the first and second semesters. They can also take part in international elective courses, which are held in New York, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Shanghai and Nairobi. More than 40% of MBA students graduate with IESEs Bilingual MBA for international students.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP in a FAST-CHANGING environment


Participants can choose from IESEs entrepreneurship courses. FINAVES, among others, provides the forum and financial resources to help students turn a new business venture into reality. In the first year, students are introduced to entrepreneurship through a core introductory course. In the second year, they can choose from various elective courses on entrepreneurship and also have the chance to present a business plan to investors. Due to the schools strong focus on entrepreneurship, about a third of MBA students create their own businesses within 10 years of graduation.

IT IS a truly inspiring and transformational experience. Above all, I valued the entrepreneurial spirit, which helped ME START MY own business together with two classmates directly AFTER the MBA.
