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!

An educational fusion – IE-SMU MBA

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

Time: 19.00 – 20.00

Venue: SMU, Lee Kong Chian School of Business, 50 Stamford Road
