IESE Business School
IESE Business School has its main campus in Barcelona, but also has additional own campuses in Madrid, Munich, New York, and Sao Paulo. Over the last decades we have consistently been amongst the top business schools in Europe and in the world, offering both MBA and non-degree executive education programs.
The Global Executive MBA Experience
The Global Executive MBA provides the tools for experienced executives who not only want to stay ahead of the game, but who aspire to grow and be more both professionally and personally. You'll acquire the additional skills needed to succeed in today's increasingly competitive business environment, in an international setting with global peers.
It combines the rigors of a top full-time MBA program with the flexibility of a part-time format. Offered in a modular format the program is compatible with personal and professional obligations. Modules revolve around Residential Sessions (2 weeks every 2 months) which are reinforced with Distributed Learning via IESE's Virtual Campus.
The Global EMBA is uniquely international, taking you to global business hubs in U.S., Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Your peers will be equally as varied in nationality, in professional experience and in perspective.
The program,s content and format are designed for maximum impact. Core program modules will bring you through Barcelona, New York, Shanghai, and Silicon Valley. The elective modules offer options such as Sao Paulo, Munich, New York, Africa, India, and South East Asia. All this contributes to a truly global experience, together with participants from more than 30 different countries.
The tools and ideas acquired in class can be applied directly to the workplace, assuring relevance and immediate benefit to both participants and their companies. As a result of our program, you will:
- Gain effective management skills and business expertise
- Acquire a multi-disciplinary global vision
- Practice cross-cultural teamworking skills
- Develop responsible leadership capabilities
- Foster a people-focused work ethic
- Act with greater confidence, personally and professionally
"IESE not only gives you the tools to become better professionally; IESE also challenges you to become a better, more responsible business leader. The human dimension is embedded into the culture of the school. This is a huge plus for me about the program. I haven't encountered this in any other business school," says Luis Bakker, VP and Board Member of Pronaca, the largest commercial food producer and largest private employer in Ecuador with over 7,000 employees. IESE is a business school of extraordinary global reach. While many IESE programs are held on the school's international campuses in Barcelona, others take place at various global locations throughout Europe, as well as Asia, Africa, Latin America and the United States.
