IESE Crosses the Atlantic
Calling all managers with an interest in Latin America! IESE, based in Barcelona and Madrid, has launched its first American MBA: the Senior Executive Program in Miami. This announcement comes as many European business schools look to strengthen their position in the U.S. market. The IESE program is designed for experienced professionals and will be run with two leading Latin American business schools, Mexico’s IPADE and Argentina’s IAE.
This fast-paced, high-level general management program–taught in English–aims to help senior executives with specific interests in Latin America achieve new levels of success in managing and leading their companies. It consists of four one-week modules (three in Miami and one in Madrid) and kicks off in October. Each participant will liaise with a faculty “coach” charged with helping assess individual progress and stimulating deeper reflection. Throughout the program, participants will develop their own “take-home agendas” and action plans for themselves and their companies.
What sort of participants is IESE looking for? The program is designed for those who derive a significant portion of their business from Latin America or plan to in the future. IESE says participants will typically be top-tier managers or company owners and have 15 years of managerial experience or more, and class selection will be made with diversity of companies, sectors and cultural backgrounds in mind.
The fee for the class of SEP 08/09 is $39,000, which includes tuition, all reading and classroom materials, most meals and accommodations in Miami and Madrid.
IESE, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, opened an office in New York in 2007. To apply online for the Senior Executive Program in Miami, click here.
