03. International Executive MBA
IE Business School
International Executive MBA

The program equips participants with a solid working knowledge of the most innovative business management techniques, with an emphasis on new technologies. It also familiarizes students with the kind of management skills that are increasingly paramount to professional success.

The Timeframe

The International Executive MBA program lasts 13 months and has two intakes each year, one starting in November and the other in June. A new timetabling option is available with classes being held once every two weeks as opposed to every week, in order to provide maximum flexibility.

The program includes three residential periods and two on-line training periods. Of the three presential periods, two are conducted at our central campus in Madrid during the first and last periods of the program, with the remaining one taking place in Shanghai in the middle of the program.


The Pre-program

This introductory course is designed to equip students with the basics of financial accounting, aimed at those who are unfamiliar with them. It introduces participants to the mechanisms and logic that underlie all accounting processes, which in turn permit them to prepare and analyze typical accounting tasks, such as balance sheets, profit and loss accounts, and cash flows.
Students are not required to come to Madrid until the beginning of the first residential period as the pre-program is conducted entirely online.

The Core Program

The International Executive MBA is divided into two modules, one dealing with Fundamentals and the other with Integration.

Both modules combine presential training during the three intensive residential periods with online sessions in between. Students are therefore able to follow the program regardless of their geographic location.

The presential periods permit students to work with concepts and skills that require the physical presence of students to promote interaction with the professors, and between participants.
The initial and final sessions of each module take place during these periods with three sessions in total, two held in Madrid, and one in Shanghai. These periods consolidate the work done throughout the program with seminars focused on skill-building activities, the presentation of individual and group projects, and assessment tests.

The virtual campus is the fundamental point of reference for the online activities that form a communication platform for group work and for the teacher-led online sessions. Participants have easy access to the comments, opinions, and experiences of professors and fellow students, as well as general information on the program.

Students participate in their own training right from the start of the course. Intensive communication and a methodology that hinges on participation guarantee a high level of motivation and commitment to the program.

The International Executive MBA program at IE Business School provides all the tools for professional success in international business management and entrepreneurship. An innovative program that maximizes the distance learning experience, the International Executive provides for the unique needs of the executive preparing students for the requirements of the dynamic international business world.
