The continued demand of online education, makes IE launching a second intake in March 2011 of its renowned Global MBA.
Since already 4 years, the IE Global MBA provides candidates with an extraordinary flexbility when studying their MBA program. They can continue progressing within their corporations meanwhile they connect on a daily basis to the online campus, exchanging experiences and discussing cases in teams like in the full-time MBA class.
Every Saturday they enjoy the class setting through videoconferences where teams have to present their conclusions on a given case discussing it with the entire class moderated by the professor. If you’re working in an international oriented company, videoconferences are most likely to be happening at some stage of your career development and during the program you learn the tools to efficiently conduct those conferences.
Due to the increasing demand of the Global MBA and a more diversified outreach, IE introduced last year a second time slot for the Saturday Videoconferences. Now, those sessions can be followed from 11am to 3pm and from 4pm to 8pm (Madrid time). The second time slot boosted the diversity in class and the program counts now with 43 different nationalities within a class size of about 70.
… and there is another good news: in addition to the September intake , IE launches a second intake, starting in March 2011. The official program start is set for March 19, 2011 and the first residential week starts on March 28, 2011. This first residential weeks helps to know the other team and classmates as well as the professors. The second residential week at the end of the program is rounding up the whole online experience with the graduation together with the full-time MBA. Being awarded the same degree, it makes sense that both classes graduate together!
