Programme Presentation

IESE'S Full-time MBA is a flexible duration program that can be completed in either 15 or 19 months. It is an experience that sharpens your technical and leadership skills with global, cross-cultural learning opportunities.

Whether you choose to opt for the 15 months or the 19 months duration, the program will be divided in 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 months 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 months format, your second year will be all about electives. There are currently more than 130 electives to choose from – an unrivalled opportunity to customize your academic load according to your business interests. Combined with international opportunities such as our global exchange program (available only for 19 months students) and overseas modules, this is the moment to build the MBA that is right for you.
