Why we’re different

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 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.

The Case Method

It puts you in the position of the decision-maker. Working in small teams, you’ll analyze actual business problems and create workable solutions.  Guided by expert faculty, you’ll then debate the problem in class, defending your decisions and convincing others to follow you – as they do the same.

The case method will sharpen your thinking and communication skills. How do you approach business problems? How do you reconcile different perspectives? What’s the best course of action? How can you persuade others? These are some of the core skills of any business leadership role.

Examples of cases

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. These are just a few examples used in IESE classes of real cases on leading companies:

Top international faculty

IESE’s faculty includes full-time and part time professors. All full-time professors have PhDs from prestigious universities. They are also highly international, representing more than 20 nationalities, and bring vast relevant expertise from the highest levels of business.

Faculty members serve on diverse corporate boards and publish their research in leading academic journals, combining real-world experience with pioneering academic insights.

IESE professors have an “open-door” policy and provide you with invaluable mentoring and guidance. They cultivate rich exchanges of ideas that make the most of the combined experience in your classroom.

A truly global business school Map

IESE and Harvard Business School

Internationally renowned faculty, world-class executive education, integrity, values, diverse student population and active learning are but a few of the qualities Harvard Business School and IESE share.

What is perhaps less known, is that for more than 60 years, the Harvard-IESE Committee has striven to bring these values – and more – to Europe and the rest of the world.

More than 60 years of academic collaboration, faculty exchange and sharing the same mission: to develop leaders with integrity prepared to make an impact on society and business.

In 1963 Harvard Business School formed an alliance with IESE Business School. Bringing the case method to the IESE classrooms was just the beginning. Over the years, IESE professors began writing their own cases, designing their own innovative and vanguard academic theories. Making their own impact and becoming thought leaders in their own right. Today, IESE’s faculty is part of what makes IESE stand out from other European business schools.
