IESE to Open a Campus in Munich
IESE will open a campus in Germany at the end of 2014. It will be located in one of Munich’s most iconic quarters and next to Bavaria’s Parliament houses. IESE’s new campus will be renovated before opening by the end of this year.
This will be the first time that an international business school opens a fully-functionining executive education campus in Germany. The move highlights IESE’s commitment to Germany and to Europe. IESE has been in Munich since 2005, when it launched its Advanced Management Program (AMP), first held at the Siemens Forum. Since then, the school has continued to grow by launching new open program, including IESE’s Program of Management Development (PMD), and in-company programs with top German firms, including: Allianz, BASF, Bertelsmann, BMW, Deutsche Bank, Haniel Group, Henkel, MAN, Opel, and Phoenix, among others.
IESE’s future plans for the new Munich campus include the launch of new Executive Education and custom programs; international modules of the Global Executive MBA Program; and further editions of the school’s flagship AMP and PMD courses. In addition, the campus will also house two research centers focused on the study of Family Businesses and Manufacturing and Innovation. Also, and for the second time in its history, the school plans to host the 2015 Global Alumni Reunion in Munich (the first took place in 2006.)
The campus is expected to have one large classroom, two multi purpose rooms for conferences and seminars, and eight meeting rooms.
The long term lease of the IESE Munich campus building is a very important step for IESE reflecting its commitment to serving German and Central Europe’s companies and alumni, and underscoring the school’s succesful trajectory in global markets. Today, IESE has educational facilities and programs in Barcelona, Madrid, New York, Munich and Sao Paulo, and offers regular executive programs in Mexico DF, Mumbai, Nairobi, Shanghai and Warsaw.
IESE has also helped develop 15 business schools in emerging markets, including Brazil, China, Colombia, Mexico, Kenya or Nigeria, among others. These schools have become references of excellence in management education in their countries and continents.
