The International MBA program follows a learning-by-doing approach. This approach extends to the integrative exercise at the end of the year, aimed at culminating your learning experience feeling already familiar with the real business challenges of today. Explore the value proposition of our International MBA through its core, the elective period and innovative methods to maximize your entrepreneurial mind set. In other words, it creates an environment for unconventional thinkers like you who dare to be different and wish to create an impact!
During the Core Period, you acquire the needed business acumen of a regular MBA degree through courses in Economics, Accounting, Marketing, Operations and Finance among others. In addition, subjects on Innovation and Design, Critical Management Thinking, and Entrepreneurship are designed to give you an edge over other MBA graduates.
After the Core Period, you enter an accelerated module offering an entrepreneurial pedagogy, and can choose a track aligned to your career objectives by either starting a business or becoming a change agent within a corporation. These “Labs” use experiential learning through challenges, workshops and multimedia tools, to bring you as close as possible to solving real case scenarios.
To further enable you to pursue your passions, the elective period at the end of the program offers a wide variety of customization options, including trends and track specific electives as well as exchanges. After the Lab Period, you will also have the possibility of participating in different international options like the IE Venture Days, short exchanges such as a finance trip to Jeddah, or social impact trips to Ethiopia or Brazil as part of the Global Immersion Experience.
