Partner Stories

IESE has extensive experience partnering with leading companies from diverse sectors across the globe. IESE’s custom programs with these and other organizations include a stimulating combination of activities. Case studies, role-plays, facilitated dialogues, simulations, executive and peer coaching, project work, face-to-face and online interaction all aim is to expose participants to new ways of thinking, push them to question current perspectives and finally give them the opportunity to test new approaches in real life. We believe it is this mix that drives the practical application of ideas and generates the real business impact that makes IESE’s Custom Programs truly transformational for participants and their companies.

The following are just some examples of IESE’s work.
