The programme provides professionals from within and outside the region with a competitive advantage by supplying them with the necessary tools to become an Asia-Pacific business expert.

The IE-SMU MBA is offered in a Blended learning environment, which combines five face-to-face residential periods with interactive online modules. This allows professionals from diverse backgrounds, industries and cultures to connect, regardless of their geographic location, travel schedules or work commitments.

The IE-SMU partnership combines the best of theory and practice, including the analysis of business cases, simulated environments, as well as faculty-guided, cross-functional, real-life projects.
