10 Common mistakes Entrepreneurs make and should avoid

Written on August 10, 2014 by irinadeneanu in IE News

AREA31 2014 134Entrepreneurship is risky, uncertain and exciting. But when you are pushing the limits it is easy to make mistakes or even fail. That´s normal life for entrepreneurs. Yet there is good news too, because mistakes can be a great opportunity to learn. However, there are some mistakes that are not helpful at all. They offer few learning benefits and can inflict significant damage. Therefore some mistakes are worth it, and others are not.

Join us for an interactive workshop with professor Peter Bryant where we will explore 10 of the common mistakes that entrepreneurs make and should avoid.

Peter Bryant is a Professor of Entrepreneurship at IE Business School in Madrid, Spain. Peter studied at the University of Sydney and earned his PhD in Management from Macquarie University in 2006. During the preceding fifteen years, he worked as a manager in the airline, banking, consulting and venture capital industries. In his academic career, Peter researches and teaches in the fields of entrepreneurial management and strategy, and their relationship to the evolution of organizational capabilities.

When? Thursday August 14th, 2014 @ 5,30 pm
Where? New South Innovations Level 2, Rupert Myers Building (South) UNSW Kensington Campus. Near Gate 14, Barker Street. Kensington 2052. Australia

Get insights into the IE-SMU MBA

Written on April 7, 2014 by Dirk Hopfl in IE News

A blended program sounds abstract and difficult to catch. MOOCs help to get the idea to study a program mostly online and gain valuable knowledge, industry insights and network through it. But still doubts remain…

The following presentation on the IE-SMU MBA, an educational fusion created by IE Business School and Singapore Management University, gives you visual support that online learning works, is effective and produces a great return on investment. Keeping your job, studying with a mostly flexible time table and be able to travel and relocate while doing the program are some of the features of such programs. An Asian focus, project-based learning  and getting taught by global and outstanding faculty are additional valuable elements.

Keen on more arguments? Visit our face-to-face event or virtual information sessions which we are hosting over the next couple of months. Just connect to www.ie-smu-mba.com to explore the details!

Written on March 11, 2014 by Dirk Hopfl in IE News

IE-SMU MBA

There are few moments to present a uniquely differentiated new MBA program. The IE-SMU MBA is one of those occasions in which two leading academic institution bring together a sound mix of elements, blend them and create a true EDUCATIONAL FUSION.

The IE-SMU MBA is an intensive 10-month MBA program developed jointly by IE and Singapore Management University to shape top talent in Asia. This blended MBA offers insights into Asia-Pacific markets, business strategies and management cultures. The program is angled around 5 periods (1 week full-time at the beginning in Singapore, 3 weekend periods in Singapore and one last period of 4 days in Madrid) intercepted by interactive online periods. Those online periods are delivered either through real-time video conferences or through asynchronous forum discussions.

A hands-on, case-based approach mainly with cases from Asian businesses aligns smoothly with the project-based learning along the program in which participants work with companies on real projects geared to improve efficiency and productivity.

If you are based in Singapore, join our upcoming presentation at SMU:

Date: March 12, 2014
