Faculty Information

Students Say

As the first online MBA program in Europe (founded in 2000), IE University's outstanding reputation consistently attracts "diverse" and "strong" talent the world over. Students find the curricular experience second to none: "Support is always online with us while in class and readily available otherwise." Likewise, the program's "administration is generally very supportive," getting back to students with "feedback within less than 24 hours." Students praise IE's online class format, describing it as "at the forefront" of online education. "Experienced and talented" professors are also "really engaging and know how to use the forums and on-line tools extremely well." The students are "well-connected, global citizens" who say they are "goal-oriented," "supportive team players." Students say they "love working with a team that is spread out across the world and working in different industries" because it exposes them to "different spheres of businesses" and "experiences." Through a custom mobile app and other interactive tools, IE has accommodated its technical setup with the needs of working professionals in mind. Student count the online platform among the school's greatest strengths, and note that classes "also use other tools such as Skype and WhatsApp which enhance the peer-to-peer communication." Because IE's 15-month program offers options either to complete 80 percent of coursework online or to travel for face-to-face learning every six weeks, students particularly love the program's immersive opportunities: "We had an incomparable experience during our global immersion week in Shanghai," which included "interesting topics and courses at Fudan University where we were introduced to the Chinese business environment."
