If you want to advance professionally and personally as a leader, then the IESE Global Executive MBA is for you. Through the rigorous and comprehensive curriculum, you will learn how to make effective decisions from a general management perspective. Learning from world-class faculty and your classmates, who are international executives from every continent, enriches the experience of the residential sessions in Europe, North and South America and Asia.
Business skills and knowledge: advancement potential
The first step is to strengthen your management skills and knowledge. Increasing your leadership ability – making better decisions and inspiring others to do the same – is also key. IESE’s Global EMBA case-based general management curriculum provides you with practical tools that will help you perfect these skills. Each time you apply your new talents to organizational needs, the return on your educational investment grows, as does your advancement potential.
Global content: a transformative impact
Preparing executives to think and act as global leaders require a curriculum devised in a context of evolving international challenges and core humanistic values. Our goal is to change the way you think about organizations –and the people in them– and how to manage the inter-relationships of a global society. The resulting insight and empowerment you experience can be transformative.
Reflection: personal growth
Having time to think away from the pressure of work encourages personal growth and new career insights, and this is an important element of IESE’s Global EMBA program. The self-management component “makes you think about yourself and where you’re doing – your career, your family, and what’s important,” notes one alumnus.
Personalized focus: you are central
Behind every teaching strategy – a case study, team project, faculty lecture, class discussion or company visit – is our resolve to tailor your professional development to your personal needs and goals. Choose between Europe or Americas track as well as Elective Modules. Everything you take away from IESE’s Global EMBA program will bear your own individual stamp.
Structure and Calendar
To make it easier to fit in with your professional and personal life, IESE offers the Global Executive MBA program in a modular format. It is divided into modules and comprises a mix of on and off-campus learning to minimize time out of the office.
Format at a glance
The bimonthly format offers you the flexibility you need while the time between modules allows you to absorb and apply what you have learned. Global Campus, IESE’s proprietary distance-learning platform, keeps you connected with your classmates and professors between residential sessions in order to reduce work disruption and build a supportive community.
One Class, Two Tracks
The Global Executive MBA is one class, two track program. Participants can choose to begin their program with an emphasis on either Europe or the Americas. As the program progresses the two tracks fully integrate, further enhancing the diversity of the class. For more information on the track, structure download the Program Brochure on the right-hand side of this page.
Participants are expected to be fully dedicated during the residential sessions and devote an average of 15-20 hours/week between them.
IESE's Global Executive MBA is a selective program that seeks first-rate participants from different professional and cultural backgrounds. Applications for places on the program are studied in the order in which they are received. Bearing in mind that the number of places is limited, you are advised to submit your application as soon as possible.
Nonetheless, we encourage you to contact us before doing so. We will assign you an “admission mentor”, who will analyze your CV in the early stages of the information gathering process and help you determine whether the program is right for you.
Successful applicants may postpone their participation in the program for a year as of the date on which it is next due to begin.
