Ready to transform your teaching?

Teaching business management means unlocking understanding. It means opening up access to skills, to critical thinking, to the frameworks that empower managers to lead.

Effective teaching means mastering the most efficient methodologies and concepts: from using the case method to writing your own cases; from the fundamentals of course design to learning in our connected world.

The International Faculty Program immerses you in best-in-class teaching and institutional practices.

Be transformed in your teaching. Have impact across your institution.

Have impact

Not just in your classroom – get the “dean’s” view, share your learning with your colleagues, empower your institution.


Prepare to master the case method. From using case studies as teaching tools, analyzing them to writing your own. IFP also explores how people learn, what leadership means, what makes for a good teacher and how to effect institutional change – the “dean’s” view.


  • Case method

    Case studies examine real-life business scenarios to develop students’ critical thinking and analytical skills. This potent methodology oftentimes provokes more questions than answers, and requires students to approach business challenges from multiple angles and perspectives.

  • Case writing

    Learn how to write compelling and thought-provoking case studies, identifying the key phases in the creation process.

  • Course design

    Explore the fundamentals of solid course design across different fields, disciplines, target audiences and program lengths.

  • Faculty development

    Reflect on the broad implications of an academic vocation and how your needs may vary over time as you progress in your careers.

  • Learning in the connected world

    Examine the latest academic methodologies such as the flipped classroom, social and mobile learning, games, MOOCs and simulations; as well as strategies to leverage their use when designing a program.

  • Institutional development: the dean’s view

    Although business schools are first and foremost learning institutions, they are also organizations that need to be managed. In this module, senior faculty members will examine the principles of business school management and development.

  • Inter-personal communication in the academic context

    Discover the keys to designing and delivering informative, captivating, research-based presentations created as “organized conversations” to stimulate intellectual and social connections. The emphasis is on audience analysis, nonverbal communication and trust.

  • Coaching

    Reflect on coaching as an educational tool as well as its relation to personality.

  • Case presentation

    Under the guidance of IESE faculty, you may have the opportunity to prepare and teach cases during the program.


  • Online teaching methodology

    There will be online discussion of cases for two weeks, during which you experience online learning methodology.


Be part of a rich and diverse learning group from different countries and backgrounds, sharing a wide range of cultural and academic perspectives.
