IESE is a top-ranked business school that has stood at the forefront of global business education for nearly six decades. IESE caters to outstanding individuals at different stages of their careers.



IESE’s Full-time MBA is a flexible duration programme that can be completed in either 15 or 19 months. It is an experience that sharpens your technical and leadership skills with global, crosscultural learning opportunities. Whether you choose to opt for the 15 months or the 19 months duration, the programme will be divided into core courses and electives. The first three terms are common to all students and represent a deep dive into business essentials, allowing you to hone new competencies, build your network and forge friendships with your classmates.


If you choose the accelerated 15-month track, you will have classes during the summer months instead of doing a summer internship. Those summer classes will be a mix between core classes shared by all and electives. If you go for the traditional 19-month format, your second year will be all about electives. There are currently more than 130 electives to choose from – an unrivalled opportunity to customise your academic load according to your business interests. Combined with international opportunities such as our global exchange programme and overseas modules (available for both 15- and 19 -month students), this is the moment to build the MBA that is right for you.


At IESE we use the Case Method. We find it to be the most effective way to leverage each classroom’s immense diversity. All our cases are taught in alignment with Harvard Business School’s teaching method, which enables discussion of real business situations from a general management perspective under the guidance of world-class faculty.
