    “Business is about analysis, decision-making, acumen, intelligence. It’s all of those things, but it’s also about how you interconnect with other people. The relationships that you forge. And your capacity to work with – as well as lead – teams. At IESE, teamwork is such a huge part of the MBA. And the network of relationships you build while you’re here that can last a lifetime.”

    “IESE professors are required to share their time between teaching, research and professional activities in their field of expertise. Professor Toni Dávila is a great example  - not only successful in juggling all this, but also manages to maintain an active presence in the MBA. He somehow always finds time to have a quiet coffee with you in the student lounge, greeting people with his signature big smile.”

THE CASE METHOD

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 in any leadership role in business.

The case method puts you in the position of the decision-maker. Working in small teams, you analyze business problems and create workable solutions. And you’ll be expected to defend your decisions.

During your MBA, you’ll be exposed to more than 600 real-life global business cases, with one common denominator: the need for a decision. So the question is, what will you do?

A PLAYFUL APPROACH TO SERIOUS LEARNING: SIMULATIONS

How will you learn

Simulations are innovative and powerful learning experiences that put you in the shoes of a CEO, CFO, or senior decision-maker and challenge you really put what you’ve learnt to the test in an immersive, simulated business scenario.

Over the course of your MBA you’ll have the chance to experience simulations that range from scrum simulation with the lean Lego Game to the Executive Simulation (EXSIM): an intense, immersive five-day “call of duty” that sees you take on a C-Suite role in an industrial company. You will work in a team to prepare strategy for each “trimester” that touch every function of your business. And you’ll be evaluated on your ability to deliver results on a quarterly basis and to satisfy your stakeholders’ interests.
