The IE-SMU MBA programme educates business professionals working both within and outside the Asia-Pacific region to excel in their respective organizations and sectors by keeping context in mind and arming them with real world work experience through our project-based learning methodology.

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.
