A WORD FROM OUR DEAN


International MBA

At IE Business School, innovation is a way of life. For over four decades, we have prepared managers and entrepreneurs for a world that is constantly changing, a world in need of leaders whose innovative thinking turns challenges into opportunities. More than 45,000 alumni have lived the IE experience and now hold management positions in more than 100 countries; a dense network of IE ambassadors spanning five continents. If I had to state what differentiates IE Business School, I would without a doubt say that it is how our programs bring together incredibly diverse groups of students and faculty in an intensive learning experience, against the backdrop of a major European capital city. Our learning model puts students at the center, is eminently practical and ensures that students acquire not only the technical know-how but also the mindset and interpersonal skills that are essential for a successful professional career. Add to this our strong ties to the business community and you have all the ingredients for a program that optimally prepares graduates for a demanding global job market. This is how we recreate the IE experience each day, with the work and enthusiasm of all those who form part of the IE Business School community. It is an experience that has positioned us as an innovative and entrepreneurial school consistently ranked among the very best in the world. A school that forms opinions. A school that makes a difference.

6 UNIQUE THEMES Diversity Entrepreneurship Innovative Curriculum Customization Career Strategy Social Innovation

THE INTERNATIONAL MBA AT IE BUSINESS SCHOOL

Anna Agustina Marie Frachou United States of America, Class of 2014 Current Student

Many institutions claim to be diverse, but IE is the only one I have seen that truly exemplifies this concept. We have 71 nationalities in my class alone excluding staff and professors. IE truly embraces diversity and has effectively interwoven this concept throughout the IMBA program. I have already learned so much from my peers - about them, myself and the business world. This diversity has only enriched my IMBA experience - a value I don’t think I could have found anywhere else.

Benjamin Leaver United Kingdom, Class of 2012 Investor Lepe Partners

IE gave me an extraordinary opportunity. Not only did I get the chance to live in the most wonderful city but my classmates exposed me to cultures that I would not have otherwise met. In my opinion, the IMBA is only partly about what you learn; who you learn from and how you learn is just as important. The school’s focus on diversity, entrepreneurship and leadership has never been as important as it is now. The student body and faculty both epitomise these qualities and make me proud to have attended IE.

THE ENTREPRENEURSHIP ECOSYSTEM THAT SURROUNDS IE: #Area31 IE’s passion for entrepreneurship has materialized in Area 31, an inspiring space that hosts the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem that surrounds IE Business School, and that is managed by the IE Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Area 31 can accommodate up to 100 startup teams per annum. It hosts teams of IE students, which are trying to implement their ideas as part of the Venture Lab or the Knowledge Incubator, as well as teams of IE Alumni that are incubating their own startups. All teams are invited to present in front of investors at the Venture Network, and at our grand international demo-days: The Venture Days. Furthermore, selected investors use Area 31 as their office, working side by side with our entrepreneurs. The team of the IE Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation also collaborates in the Spain Startup Co-Investment Fund and corporate partners such as Accenture or Telefónica receive assistance from IE in their pursuit of promoting entrepreneurship.

Neda Aldihany Kuwait, Class of 2011 Managing Director Brilliant Lab

When you study at IE Business School, which is home to such a diverse community between professors and students, the first thing that might come to your mind is how to become independent. To be an entrepreneur means to be independent, and to succeed you need to truly believe in the concept you are trying to pivot; so you should fake it, fake it until you make it.


International MBA

IE Venture Lab The Venture Lab at IE provides students with two options: A competitive 4-months long Venture Accelerator, which seeks to turn ideas into “investor ready” startups through the application of the Lean Startup Methodology, and a fast track Knowledge Incubator, where during 7-weeks students are put through a similar experience but using an intensive boot camp approach.

IE Venture Days The ultimate IE celebrations of entrepreneurship are the IE Venture Days. These include two annual Venture Days in Madrid in May and November, as well as International Venture Days that take place in locations, including Shanghai, Sao Paolo, Mexico, Providence, Milan, Tokyo, Lisbon and many others. During the Madrid Venture Days prominent entrepreneurs from around the world take part in a full day celebration of entrepreneurship that includes keynote speakers, workshops and many other activities culminating in the competition of the 10 finalists from the Venture Accelerator, Knowledge Incubator as well as other Alumni startup projects. The International Venture Days are similar events that bring together alumni startups from all over the world that present to juries of local investors and entrepreneurs.

IE Venture Network The IE Venture Network is the heart of the Madrid entrepreneurial ecosystem where, every week, 3 startup teams made up of IE students, alumni and local entrepreneurs pitch their ideas in front of investors in Area 31’s unique pitch corner. The IE Venture Network is also present in other locations such as Barcelona, Tel Aviv, Bilbao, Canary Islands and more to come.

Paris de l’Etraz, PhD Managing Director Venture Lab Professor of Entrepreneurship IE Business School

At IE, we realize that not everyone will be an entrepreneur. However, everyone needs think like one. It is the entrepreneurial mentality that we cultivate and promote.

WIDE OPEN: A key player in the development of a global entrepreneurial environment The IE Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is strongly committed towards achieving sustainable economic development at a global level, while remaining open to the entrepreneurial ecosystem that surrounds it. The Center’s activities go beyond the classroom, directed to all agents who interact on a day to day basis within our economic reality. Some of the main activities have included in the past: Pasion>ie IE Business School and Accenture continue with Pasion>ie, an initiative that links the entrepreneurial community with the corporate investment world in order to contribute to social and economic development. The program, designed and conducted by IE Business School, offers specific training courses for start ups, along with a period of mentoring offered by IE mentors and the innovation heads of collaborating firms.

Wayra Startups Training Wayra is a program for technological startups promoted by Telefónica, aimed at supporting the creation of ICTs in Europe and Latin America, making it the leading global platform for identifying technological talent in the ICT world. IE Business School has been involved in Wayra from its very beginning, in the development of training programs, and by nourishing the pool of mentors offered to start ups throughout the different acceleration phases.

Spain Startup & Investor Summit The Spain Startup & Investor Summit is an initiative that brings together all of the key Spanish players in the business ecosystem such as entrepreneurs, companies, investors, institutions and government. The goal: To support entrepreneurship, job creation and the promotion of Spain’s image around the world.

For me, the most important part of my MBA was learning from the students around me. With such a great variety of professional and life experiences I was challenged, motivated and inspired in equal measures almost every day. The network of friends and colleagues I now have, even after the MBA has finished, continues to ensure life will always be full of amazing experiences!

In 13 months, it is not possible to do it all. For me, this limitation is a positive feature - it forces the student to decide upon a course of action and prioritize which activities and classes will be most beneficial to achieving career goals. When my time at IE is done, I am certain that I will not remember every financial ratio or strategy framework. I am also certain however, that the implicit knowledge of international business transmitted through diversity will stay with me for many years to come.

Whether it comes to education, growth, people or experiences, I never would have thought you can squeeze so much into 13 months.

IE has given me the curriculum, colleagues and courage to confidently envision and explore different life possibilities.


PROGRAM STRUCTURE The International MBA at IE is a unique and holistic learning experience delivered over the course of 13 months in two key parts. The first large block of the program, known as the Core, requires all students to undergo the same curriculum to achieve a sound foundation in General Management. In each of the three core periods, students gain critical insights into Management Fundamentals, Skills and Integration that help them develop a wellrounded understanding of business. After completing the Core, students have a strong General Management know-how they can leverage to excel within increasingly complex organizations on an international scale or in dynamic young start-ups.

The second part of the program, called IMBA+, is customizable according to each student’s individual preferences. It provides students with the opportunity to personalize their course selection and take deep dives into topics of interest that span a wide variety of course offerings. To maximize the learning potential of every student, IE strongly believes in facilitating the exchange of ideas, cultures and experiences in a highly interactive and collaborative environment that brings students closer to markets, organizational realities, and real business practices. Examples include working on real life challenges with renowned companies, multimedia cases, and online investment tools such as Bloomberg housed in our very own Trading Room.

TEACHING METHODOLOGY Case Method Each area of business is studied using practical cases, most of which deal with the real problems that may arise in different company contexts. Cases are first prepared individually, then in groups, using one of the numerous workgroup rooms at IE Business School, before being discussed in class under the guidance of the professor.

Team Work Students of the International MBA are divided into small workgroups which are carefully formed with attention to the different training, backgrounds and experiences of their members to ensure diversity. This kind of group work is an essential preparation for future professionals in management positions. These groups are not fixed and will change over the course of the core part of the program to maximize the opportunity of working with different peers.

Interactive Learning We put a wide range of multimedia tools at our students’ disposal: simulators, interactive graphics, videos and podcasts, as well as completely interactive case studies and technical notes. This innovative use of media supports different learning styles and makes content easier to absorb.

International MBA

CHALLENGE WEEKS

At several points throughout the program, students will encounter “challenges” that will push them beyond their comfort zone and expose them to real-world professional situations. The first challenge, called LAUNCH, provides students with a fun, useful and out-of-the-box way to start developing interpersonal and critical thinking skills in advance of the first core period. For two weeks, students participate in interactive workshops and seminars that focus on Leadership, Awareness, Understanding, Networking, Communication and Humanities. The second and third challenge weeks take place after the first and second core periods. During one week modules, students get a taste of the real life managerial challenges while analyzing, debating and presenting findings on different project engagements presented by external collaborators. Over the years, IE students have had the privilege to interact with top players in different sectors to examine critical issues such as Post-Merger Integration, International Expansion, Client Segmentation, and Fundraising among others that these organizations face.

Basil Alrayes Saudi Arabia, Class of 2014 Current Student

LAUNCH was nothing like a typical MBA class. We were neither learning nor simply applying tools; but instead, we were learning a new way of thinking.

FUTURE LEADERS The Leadership Lab takes place throughout the Core Periods of the IMBA Program in three stages. Each stage helps students grasp and put to use the key skills and the multi-dimensional mindset that successful leaders harness. First, students start off with communication skills, a key pillar in leadership roles, thereafter transitioning into workshops on workgroup skills, assessment tools, and culminating with course work dedicated to transformational leadership and developing a leader’s vision. Collectively, this curriculum emphasizes the importance of leading by example, managing and participating in teams, learning to motivate others, and developing the emotional intelligence needed to lead and inspire.

BEYOND THE PROGRAM NETWORKING EVENTS During the IMBA Program students will have numerous opportunities to mingle with their peers and network with students, alumni, faculty and staff from all other programs offered at IE. While some activities are IMBA driven, there are many other events, conferences, seminars, club meetings, and other extracurricular activities across the IE Community at large. Some of the IMBA driven events in the past have, among others, included the following: • IEINSIGHTS A series of conferences where high profile speakers share their experience and knowledge that led them to be leaders in today’s business world with an audience of students and professors. Conferences in the past have included companies, such as: BBVA, Paramount Pictures, Intel*, Thales, Aviva**, P&G, Dunkin Brands and Mondelez International***. *Intel Topic: Transforming Intel as Intel technology transforms our Digital Age

**AVIVA Topic: Creating Thought Leadership

***Mondelez International Topic: Being a Growth Company by Doing Good

• IETALKS! A platform where IE students and alumni from different programs network and learn from each other by coming together in an interactive forum to discuss topics of interest, such as “Working in Asia” and “Working in Latin America” as well as “Career Changers.”

Gerardo Lara Mendoza Venezuela, Class of 2014 Current Sudent

If I would be asked to analyze the most frequently used word in the IMBA program, networking would probably be the one. The chance to build your own network of contacts is one of the most appealing features of any MBA program. At IE, students can take advantage of both, IE’s unparalleled tools and its capacity to attract hundreds of students from all over the world, to build a highly complex network of great cultural, professional and academic diversity.

/ 31


CAMPUS LIFE Networking at IE continues through the Campus Life Office that helps students to make the most out of their IE Experience. The goal is to create an engaged community that covers the diversity of the student body and to share common interests as well as to develop personal skills in a stimulating environment outside the classroom.

• Professional Clubs (IE Women in Business Club, IE Consulting Club, IE Net Impact Club, IE Capital Markets Club, IE Entrepreneurship Club, among others)

1+1: IMBA-PRIME with Brown University The objective of the IMBA-PRIME is to allow students to personalize their MBA experience at IE Business School by participating in an engineering and science program offered by Brown University. The PRIME experience is unique in that it allows its students to comprehensively address the realities of value creation. It does so by taking embryonic ideas through the venture stage by having students work side-by-side with faculty and professionals from outside Brown. PRIME begins in September and finishes in May. Students have two options depending on what order they want to pursue their dual degree in. They could choose to start the International MBA in November and then begin PRIME the following September or they could choose to study the PRIME first and then go onto the International MBA in the April intake.

GLOBAL IMMERSION EXPERIENCES Long Exchange Program (3 months) Our Long Exchange Program takes place during IMBA+ and will allow you to choose among more than 40 partner institutions around the globe to maximize your learning and experience at another top business school. Studying at a partner institution may allow you to explore a new region of the world or to be closer to the geographical location you are targeting after completing the International MBA. Students participating in the Long Exchange Program begin classes at their chosen institution at the beginning of the last two periods of the program and return to IE Business School for their final exam. Thus, after the Summer/Winter break, students who have chosen to participate in the Long Exchange Program will go directly to the partner institution. Short Immersion Experience (1 week) Some students may wish to take advantage of the broad elective offerings at IE, and still participate in the option to discover business practices in another country. Thus, we have incorporated the Short Immersion Experience option to give students the opportunity to immerse in local culture and business practices through activities such as lectures by professionals and/or faculty at our local partner institutions, company visits and networking events. Last year, our partner schools for the Short Immersion Experience program were: • Tuck School of Business (United States of America) • Cheung Kong CKGSB (China) • Nanyang (Singapore) • INSPER (Brazil) Global Network Week (GNW) In 2012, IE joined the Global Network for Advanced Management, a forum of elite business schools from around the world convened by Yale University. As part of this network, IE together with Renmin University (China), Yale SOM (US), Koç University(Turkey) and Fundação Getulio Vargas (Brazil) launched a unique and innovative pilot short exchange program called Global Network Week (GNW). Traditionally, short exchanges are bilateral, meaning exchanges and networking takes place between two schools. The GNW expands the exchange opportunities exponentially to include several schools, each one showcasing an area of expertise. For future editions of the new GNW, the participating schools and topics covered will vary. The GNW typically last for one week.

THE INTERNATIONAL MBA IN PRACTICE (INTERNSHIP)

The IMBA in Practice is an optional component of the IMBA Program that allows students to perform an internship for elective credit during their studies. The Career Management Center will channel specific opportunities to students during the Core, but the responsibility of seeking an ideal internship opportunity falls firmly on the students. Some of the most popular sectors in recent years have been Consulting (McKinsey & Co, Oliver Wyman, Deloitte), Technology (Apple, Facebook, Amazon), Pharmaceutical (Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Eli Lilly) and Banking/Finance (Goldman Sachs, BNP Paribas, JP Morgan Chase). However, the spectrum of internships performed extends well beyond the above examples. Students are given significant freedom to define their internship role and have no limitations when it comes to location, sector or industry. However, students are required to submit a proposal that allows the Academic Team to ensure the work to be performed aligns with MBA level criteria and that the time period & duration coincide with the requirements. Additionally, mandatory deliverables at the midpoint and upon completion of the internship will serve as the basis for the grade given for the IMBA in Practice. For more information on internships, please visit our Internship Guide online.

Social Impact Project IE has partnered with the Emzingo Group, an innovative company launched by IE Alumni that offers students internship opportunities in South Africa and Peru. Students participate in the NexGen Fellowship, where they work as consultants for NGOs, government agencies and social enterprises in a capacity that puts their MBA toolkit to work in order to make a social impact. Additionally, students participate in group learning sessions, reflective practice, and personal coaching that help serve as the foundation for this transformational experience.

Erica Gentilucci United States of America, Class of 2012 Emzingo Fellow

The Emzingo Fellowship was the most impactful and provoking experience of my IMBA. It opened my eyes, mind and heart to people, places and problems that I never could have imagined. In the real world, life isn’t an HBS case and the Emzingo fellowship prepared me to be more flexible, resourceful and understanding in business and in life.

WHARTON GLOBAL CONSULTING PRACTICUM (GCP) A hands-on real-world consulting project offered to International MBA students at IE Business School, in which teams of students from the Wharton School work together with teams of students from IE Business School to develop a consulting project for a company seeking to enter or expand in the US market. Over the course of the project, students interview senior directors of the client firms to gather relevant information about the project scope.

Within the first project phase, the entire team meets in Madrid to present their proposal to the client and ensure alignment with project objectives. Subsequently, the teams will liaise throughout the course of the project in order to provide updates on each team’s progress and obtain client feedback.  Finally, the IE team and representatives of the company travel to the Wharton campus to present their final findings.

ACADEMIC HIGHLIGHTS Design Thinking for Social Innovation How can we provide drinkable water to low income rural communities? How might we create a process and culture, which enables innovation to be at the core of organizations, looking at a social enterprise, a responsible business or a cross collaboration with unlikely allies? To answer these questions, we need to re-imagine, re-invent and re-design the way that we do business the way in which we create and deliver value. After the first core period of the IMBA curriculum, students will participate in a one-week-long challenge on social innovation, during which a topic on a specific global change driver is analyzed. Students will explore how social entrepreneurship can help the “Base of the Pyramid” aspire to a better living and how reintegrating the world’s poorest in the economy and society can bring positive global change and the promise of a better future for many generations to come. The Socially Responsible Classroom With +80 core course and electives, IE has been distinguished by the Aspen Institute as the 1st business school in Europe and 3rd worldwide in integrating social and environmental impact into the IMBA+ program. Students may choose from a variety of different classes* such as: • Corporate Social Responsibility • Social Business Incubator • Knowledge Incubator: Renewable Energy • Empresa Social (Spanish track) • Renewable Energy Business • Investing in Climate Change * Courses may vary from intake to intake.
