Make a difference
The IESE Executive MBA is a demanding and rigorous program designed by experts and adapted to suit your needs. You lead your own transformation as you strive for the best in yourself.
All the program’s professors hold PhDs from top universities and publish in leading academic journals. They have a wealth of professional experience in international companies and sit on boards of directors. That experience, their teaching activity and the impact of their studies are major factors in IESE’s characteristic academic excellence.
You will analyze more than 300 real-life business cases, putting yourself right at the center of the decision-making process. You will prepare for that critical moment in your career when you will be asked: What are you going to do?
Managers must know how to solve problems, reconcile diverse perspectives, decide on solutions… and get other people onboard along the way.
Here’s how it works:
You will share knowledge, experiences and ideas with peers from a broad diversity of organizations and sectors. This rich interchange of perspectives will broaden your view now and throughout your career.
On top of your relationship with faculty and program managers you’ll be assigned a personal mentor who will advise you on your career path – and how to reach your full potential.
REACH YOUR FULL POTENTIAL
Managerial skills are essential. Over the course of the program you will develop your capabilities, interact with executives from international companies, learn to position your personal brand and reinforce your ability to make decisions.
COMPETENCIES AND RESOURCES
Get the resources you need to communicate smoothly in any professional field – face-to-face negotiations, group meetings or large audiences.
Discover the most common types of negotiations, based on an analysis of actual cases, with specific sessions for designing appropriate strategies for each situation.
Understand and manage the one dimension that affects you in all your actions: your personality. In these sessions you will improve your self-awareness, reinforce the most positive features of your personality, and acquire new personal strengths to meet professional challenges, personal crises and stressful situations.
Familiarize yourself with multiple models of business plans and analyze their strengths and weaknesses. In the entrepreneurship program, you will develop a business plan from scratch, tailored to your personal area of interest.
REAL-LIFE BUSINESS PROJECTS
Participate in tasks posed by leading companies. Real-life challenges where you can apply the knowledge you’ve acquired during the program.
“The best thing the IESE Executive MBA has given me is to learn to think in all aspects of the company. As I have progressed in my career, this has enabled me to take up new positions.”
“Carlsberg asked us to submit a proposal for selling beer in the UK online. We had to apply everything we learned during the program. Carlsberg liked our solution so much that the whole team was invited to present it to the management of the company in Denmark. That was an amazing experience.”
“From mutual respect comes commitment and dedication, which are fundamental ingredients for building robust organizations where ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things."
