The International Executive Master of Business Administration (IEMBA) integrates the concepts and information of the various business and management disciplines and delivers through a blend of academic content and practical application. Individual courses focus on understanding external market forces, the business operations and leadership skills needed to address these, and the development of appropriate strategies required for business success. A practically-oriented, thesis research project at the end of the program, allows the student to synthesize the knowledge acquired throughout the program.
Building on a student’s prior business education and experience, the IEMBA sharpens the mastery of the various business and management disciplines and explores how these are interlinked to create value in a global market.
This program is ideal for working professionals in leadership roles, regardless if they are employed or running their own business. It will equip them with a deeper understanding of the many diverse business activities needed to create value and train the leadership competencies they will need to steer organizational resources more effectively. The general nature of the program will give learners a wide range of tools and techniques for transforming ideas and talents into sustained business success.
The program is structured as a flexible distance learning program, which can be followed either part-time or full-time, targeted at working professionals. It is conducted entirely online in a cohort mode. Regular online-meetings are held in the evenings to align with the work schedules of our participants. Physical attendance is not required.
The minimum duration as mentioned in the Key Facts reflects a full-time study approach. Full-time is defined in such way, that students follow all courses in the given sequence as per the ongoing calendar. Each new course starts every two months, except July (Summer Break). Students choose to follow the program part-time and skip a course or courses in order to align with their personal and professional commitments. Part-time students will subsequently pursue skipped courses once offered on the calendar.
