IE Brown Exec MBA Launched
IE Business School and Brown University have announced the launch of the IE Brown Executive MBA Program, touted as a one-of-a-kind offering that blends IE’s innovative approach to management education with Brown’s strengths in the humanities, social, biological, and physical sciences.
This 15-month blended learning program, slated to begin spring 2011, is designed for senior managers with more than 10 years of experience who want to develop their entrepreneurial mindset and gain a deeper and much richer understanding of the global business environment.
The program will combine online modules with five face-to-face sessions taught at IE’s campus in Madrid and Brown’s campus in Providence, R.I., a statement explained. Participants will graduate the program with a degree from IE Business School.
The strength of the agreement lies in its intention to mix content, pedagogies, and faculty from both institutions. For example, the MBA Core module will use real-life case studies to examine the latest management tools and insights.
The Liberal Arts and Critical Studies module draws on disciplines such as history, philosophy, legal studies, and psychology to uncover the underpinnings of society, from the dialogue between religion and secularization to capitalism and its hidden economies.
Additional modules investigate the political and social forces shaping emerging markets today as well as the corporate innovation processes and leadership skills associated with entrepreneurial management and new business development.
David Bach, dean of programs at IE Business School, says “Together, Brown and IE have created a new kind of program that equips managers with a combination of analytic and humanist skills necessary to confront the challenging environment posed by today’s global economy.”
