At IESE Business School, we believe business must contribute to the long-term well-being of individuals and society. For us, genuine and sustainable prosperity can only be achieved through a humanistic approach to business, which puts the focus on people as the primary driver of positive change.
While this approach informs everything that we do, we have identified specific areas of impact where we place particular emphasis.
We’re committed to developing the management practices and public policies that generate employment for all ages and career stages.
We nurture an entrepreneurial mindset which allows our alumni to create their own companies or innovate within existing firms.
Good management is the province of government as well as the private sector, and at IESE we’re dedicated to shaping strong public-sector managers and sound policies.
Women in management
Recognizing the unique gender challenges related to employment, we’re committed to ensuring that women flourish in the workplace.
We’re committed to the economic development of Africa through strengthening businesses and promoting business education.
