Health Insurance

A comprehensive health insurance policy is included in the tuition fees of the full-time MBA program. Currently the health insurance provider is Axa Winterthur. The policy covers a wide range of services including medical consultation, hospitalization, surgery, pregnancy and childbirth, pediatrics and gynecology.

Coverage begins on 1 September and ends one month after graduation on 30 June. For students enrolled in the Business Spanish Program, the coverage takes effect on the first day of the course.

Health Insurance for Family Members

Axa Winterthur can extend the same policy to partners and families residing in Spain for an additional cost. IESE recommends you submit an application for your family members immediately upon arrival. Additional information and applications are available on the Global Campus for download and can be submitted to the MBA Office.

European Health Insurance Card

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is a personal and non-transferable document that certifies the holder's entitlement to receive any necessary medically-related health care benefits during their temporary stay as a result of work, study or tourism, in the territory of the European Union, the European Economic Area and Switzerland, in accordance with the legislation of the destination country.

Fitness & Recreation

IESE's campuses do not have on-site sports facilities. Instead, in Barcelona IESE students have free access to the University of Barcelona for training and competition. In addition, there are a wide variety of gyms throughout the city that offer student discounts. DIR is one popular gym offering discounts to IESE students.

Students and program participants at IESE's Barcelona and Madrid campuses enjoy easy access to outdoor fitness and recreational activities including running, hiking and mountain biking. In Barcelona, la Carretera de las Aigües and Collserola Park are a stone's throw from campus while IESE Madrid is close to la Casa de Campo.
