    “I chose IESE because it was a two-year program. The first year is when you learn about yourself, you curate your dreams and you explore. The second year is when you make things happen. Being an expert in anything takes time. A year felt too short, while two years seemed just right.”

  • Testimonial

    “IESE’s two-year MBA program provides the perfect length to learn about the fundamentals, but also get hands-on experience during the corporate internship program. There are oversees modules for those who want a change of scenery, and some cool courses offered at specific IESE campuses such as the Internet Enabling Strategies course available only at IESE’s New York campus.”
