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.
