To make it easier to fit in with your professional and personal life, IESE offers the Global Executive MBA program in a modular format. It is divided into modules and comprises a mix of on and off-campus learning to minimize time out of the office.
Format at a glance
The bimonthly format offers you the flexibility you need while time between modules allows you to absorb and apply what you have learned. Global Campus, IESE’s proprietary distance-learning platform, keeps you connected with your classmates and professors between residential sessions in order to reduce work disruption and build a supportive community.
One Class, Two Tracks
The Global Executive MBA is a one class, two track program. Participants can choose to begin their program with an emphasis on either Europe or the Americas. As the program progresses the two tracks fully integrate, further enhancing the diversity of the class.
