IESE’s Executive MBA (EMBA) is a transformative learning experience that allows participants to acquire a top-tier business education, whilst proactively pursuing their professional career. A fully bilingual program, it is taught in English and Spanish on three campuses: Madrid, Barcelona and São Paulo.

The EMBA begins this week in Madrid and Barcelona, with teaching having already started on August 8 in São Paulo. And this year, for the first time, the EMBA will include five elective courses.
