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.

Programme Structure

The IE-SMU MBA is a 13-month programme with five face-to-face periods, one of which is optional. The face-to-face periods take place on the campuses of SMU in Singapore and IE Business School in Madrid, Spain. When participants are not on campus, they continue their learning through interactive online modules led by experienced faculty members.
