Developing leaders since 1958.

The IESE Master in Management isn’t just another program. It’s a rigorous – and rewarding – path toward where you want to go and who you want to be. You’ll be surrounded by talented peers, supported by world-class faculty and challenged by 360+ real-life business cases. We’ll put you to the test, so that you may reach your full potential.

The MiM gives you the benefits of IESE’s 60+ years of experience, its deep ties with Harvard and its unique global reach. We’ve earned our reputation. And we’ll help you earn yours. 

Key Details

Length: 11 Months

Start Date: September 

Location: Madrid

Work Experience: 0 - 2 years 

Language: English 

In light of Covid-19, IESE has been able to host in-person classes through the enforcement of strict safety measures. Our current MiM class has had an uninterrupted on-campus learning experience since they started classes in September 2020.

The program’s core courses build a solid foundation of business-management knowledge. During the program, you can choose to concentrate in one of the following tracks: Data Analytics, Strategy & Marketing and Finance. At the end of the program, there will be a special capstone course that will help you reflect on what you’ve learned and plan the next steps in your career.

As an additional complement to the academic study and projects, you’ll engage with the business world’s most critical issues in a special series program i.e., Exponential Digital Technologies, Energy, The World in 2050 etc. Through a holistic learning environment at IESE, you’ll gain the mentality and real-world abilities to tackle complex problems. 

At IESE, we believe in active-learning methodologies. This means that you will take ownership of what you learn. Through the case method, multimedia simulations, projects and teamwork, interconnection with our faculty and your multicultural peers, role-play, design thinking methodology and scrum agile design, you will acquire the skills, the knowledge and the insight to make critical decisions as a business leader.

During the MiM program, 80% of your classes will use the case method covering diverse scenarios but share a common denominator: the need for a decision.

The admissions process is designed to help you and IESE to figure out if the MiM 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 decisive: Your personality, motivation, goals, leadership  abilities and communication skills will also be taken into account.

Scholarships

This year we’ve launched more than 10 new aid programs for students in different situations. We’ve got scholarships for talent, women, students from developing countries, students with leadership experience, students with relevant experience in social entrepreneurial projects, students recommended by alumni and many more! Find out how we can help you finance your studies!

The world’s leading companies recruit IESE talent. IESE graduates are in demand because of the value they deliver, whatever the sector, wherever the opportunity. Set your career objectives and develop a strategy to achieve them. You’ll get personalized support from the Career Development Center as you refine your job-search skills, expand your network and prepare to present yourself to future employers.

As well as working with you throughout the year to increase your employability, the Career Development Center will work with potential recruiters to identify the best-possible opportunities for you. When you graduate, you’ll have the self-knowledge and insight into your target industry to make smart decisions. And you’ll have the confidence to know that you can add value to any workplace.
