IESE MBA. Fees, Funding and Admissions

The admissions process helps us to select students whose ambitions and abilities align with the challenges of the MBA. By following our step-by-step admissions guide, we’ll find out more about you while you decide if IESE fits your goals. You’ll also discover what you need to know, the documents you should submit and the dates you need to do it by.

The admissions process is designed to help you and IESE figure out if the MBA is the right fit for you and your goals. You must hold an undergraduate degree and, if you are not a native English speaker, pass an English language test, as the program is taught in English.

Your GMAT or GRE results are important but not the sole deciding factor in the admissions process: Your personality, motivation, goals, leadership abilities and communication skills will also be taken into account.

Follow the six steps below to begin your IESE MBA journey.
