At Galicia Business School we know that a good Executive MBA has three essential ingredients: a prestigious and professional teaching staff, a methodology oriented to managerial training and a group of participants with high potential. That is why we especially care for the selection of the participants and the homogeneity of the group.


Our Executive MBA combines many methodologies, aimed at improving the professional and managerial competencies of the participants. To convert it into a unique training experience we have the following instruments:

  • Case Method: We will employ very varied cases, which will allow us to learn about reality and improve in the analysis of business situations and decision making.
  • Role Play and group dynamics: We will work on real situations by putting the participants in concrete situations to later draw conclusions about the performance achieved and the personal improvement plan to be developed in that field.
  • Business Game: The business simulation, developed in teams and supervised by experts in business management, will place the participants in the management of a company in which they will integrate all the knowledge acquired applying them in a competitive market. It is about learning from real-time successes and mistakes, to integrate all the functional areas of the company.
  • Project: The project of diagnosis and improvement of a company will enable the implementation of everything learned and will be the best incentive for the improvement of the communication skills and presentation of projects of the participants.
  • Master Classes: managerial experiences. We know that learning is contagious and therefore, we design spaces approach to professionals and managers in logistics concerning that in the short distance move their experience and their organizations to participants.
  • Silicon Valley Immersion: Participants who opt for this international extension of the program will learn, without classrooms or master classes, living together for a week with entrepreneurs and managers of leading companies in innovation, and will be able to define their own innovation plan transferring their best practices.
  • Video game competition: Our executive students will live the experience of competing against the rest of the promotion in a video game in which they will test their managerial skills (decision making, leadership, etc.), using an innovative methodology awarded At national and international level.
  • Outdoor training: During the program there will be an outdoor activity aimed at improving the leadership and teamwork of the participants, an experience that will contribute decisively to the team building of the promotion.
  • Coaching and tutoring process: It is a key element of the program, since the different sessions of the Executive are nothing more than the path with which we want to accompany the personal growth and professional development of our participants, always accompanied by a certified coach.


The program will run from October 2017 to January 2019 . The format of development of the sessions is undoubtedly a differential of our Executive MBA. We are aware of the vital stage that our participants are experiencing. Their companies require more than ever their know-how and effort, and their families and friends also expect from them a minimum of reconciliation between work and personal life. That is why we have created a format that combines the high demands that, from all areas (personal, social and professional), are subject and the availability of time to tackle such a vital stage. Our program requires only two weekends per month to go to the facilities of Galicia Business School. All other activities will be done asynchronously, when it is best for the participants.

With this format we have made possible a high level Executive MBA that will take place over 15 months. Our philosophy is clear: classes of very high level, taught by prestigious teachers, and very well taken advantage of. In this way we maximize the utility and productivity of the program, making more efficient the investment of time and money of the participants. The sessions will be held on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning from 16:30 to 20:45 and from 9:30 to 13:45.


The evaluation of the program will have as central axis the preparation and presentation of the master's degree project. Another key element in the evaluation process will be conducting practical work and reports on cases and active participation in the sessions and test aimed at assessing the degree of assimilation of the contents of each of the blocks. In addition, to overcome the program will need to exceed 80% attendance at the contact hours of the program.
