Our Approach


Mission Driven

IESE’s mission is to develop leaders who aspire to have a deep, positive and lasting impact on people, firms and society through professionalism, integrity and spirit of service. The organizations with whom we partner value that we believe the leaders we help them develop will change the world for the better. If our mission sounds appealing, then IESE may be a good fit for you.

Transformational Programs

Working closely with our partners, IESE co-creates learning experiences, which achieve transformational impact. Starting with a shared dream, we design and deliver together with you a program from which participants emerge with changed mindsets and behaviors, and as a result are able to more effectively lead transformational change in your organization.

Authentic Dedication

When IESE takes on a custom program engagement, we dedicate a team, consisting of an Academic Director, Program Director and Program Manager, to see the program through from beginning to end for current and future editions. The team will stop at nothing to ensure not only that your objectives are met, but that your expectations are exceeded.

Refreshing Flexibility

Academic institutions can be rigid. Not IESE. We understand that in business change happens. As such, we offer unparalleled flexibility. If there is a change in your industry or business, we’ll make sure the program stays relevant, even if that means updating the program design in the midst of delivery.

Diverse Experience

IESE’s faculty consists of over 110 full-time professors from more than 20 nationalities. Each year, we design and deliver custom programs in partnership with more than 50 organizations from a variety of industries and across the world. If change is what you’re seeking, go beyond what is familiar and comfortable. The experience IESE brings to learning is more diverse than you will find anywhere else.

Global Reach

IESE has 5 campuses in Barcelona, Madrid, Munich, New York and Sao Paulo. Over the years, we have established a network of 15 associated business schools in Latin America, Africa and Asia. We deliver programs around the world, wherever our partners need us, and we can leverage our global reach for you.

Commitment to Excellence

IESE strives for excellence in everything we do, and we believe the results speak for themselves. We are ranked No. 1 in the World by the Financial Times for both Executive Education and Custom Programs. Experience for yourself what it means to partner with the best.
