IESE's Global Executive MBA is a selective program that seeks first-rate participants from different professional and cultural backgrounds. Applications for places on the program are studied in the order in which they are received. Bearing in mind that the number of places is limited, you are advised to submit your application as soon as possible.
Nonetheless, we encourage you to contact us before doing so. We will assign you an “admission mentor”, who will analyze your CV in the early stages of the information gathering process and help you determine whether the program is right for you.
Successful applicants may postpone their participation in the program for a year as of the date on which it is next due to begin.
Requirements for applicants
Requirements for applications
You will be required to make a non-refundable deposit of US$130 when you submit your online application form.
Should your mentor wish to confirm your suitability for the program, they may call a pre-admissions committee meeting to study your application.
If that is the case, a meeting involving at least three committee members will take place. Any such meeting will always include the academic director, the executive director and your mentor.
The pre-admissions committee's decisions will be based on the same criteria as the admissions committee applies (see below).
If the pre-admissions committee's decision is positive, your mentor will encourage you to proceed with your application. If the decision reached is negative, however, your mentor will ask you to withdraw from the process until you meet the necessary criteria.
Once you have submitted your application, along with all the documentation requested (see above), your mentor will arrange for you to have an interview with another member of the admissions committee.
Admissions committee meetings take place on the basis of the number of applications to be dealt with.
The admissions committee comprises at least four members, always including the academic director, the executive director, an applicant's mentor and the person who conducted their admissions interview.
Each committee member dealing with your application will have studied it and the report on your interview beforehand.
The criteria for admission to the program are as follows:
After studying your application, the committee will either offer you a place on the program or turn down your request, in writing, within a week of your admissions interview.
