Course content


Learning never stops. Those at the height of their careers are constantly looking for ways to do better, go further, and push boundaries. After all, knowledge is power.​

Maybe you are already working in the C-suite, but it’s not enough – you’re looking to transform business on a larger scale. The Global Executive MBA is a unique program tailored to senior directors and leaders wanting to further their career aspirations in the C-suite – people like you who want to make their mark in the boardroom. But IE’s Global Executive MBA offers not just any boardroom – from day one you learn how to lead worldwide change while discovering the next best you. The 20-month course, which uses a blended methodology, is practical and centered around critical aspects of global leadership in the 21st century. ​

The Global Executive MBA is truly positioned on an international platform, with residential periods spanning three continents – America, Europe, and Asia – in some of the world’s leading universities. Along with IE’s top-tier facility, you will join prestigious institutions University of California, Los Angeles, Singapore Management University, and Oxford University to challenge your global strategy and digital capabilities and equip yourself with the tools for C-suite success.​

This means that you will be ready to tackle business in the real world – all around the world. Students are exposed to global foresight, macro and regional aspects of relevance for global executives, and take part in a real-life "CEO challenge" which equip them with the multi-disciplinary tools and experience required to excel as global leaders.​

But these business tools are only half the story. Transformation into a global leader of change requires more than learning hard skills. Thinking and behavioral development form part of any key global leader's toolset and are both embedded in all aspects of the Global Executive MBA.​

You’ve made your name in the C-suite, now it’s time to make your mark in the global boardroom. The Global Executive MBA will position you perfectly to not only conquer the business world but also become the next best you.
