Further extend your personalized learning through the optional Business Extension Module (BEM). This five- to six-month module, undertaken after completing the International MBA, is designed to help you focus your career goals as part of your MBA journey.

The BEM is included in the MBA for students beginning their program in the September 2021 and January 2022 intakes. With it, you will remain an IE Business School student, continuing on to boost your employability and career prospects by gaining an extra certification in a track of your choice.

Above all, this extension gives those students who need it even more time to fine-tune their skills. You’ll be able to focus your career search, put your skills to the test through corporate projects or internships, complete a High-Impact Online Program (HIOP) or even take part in an international exchange. And for any startup founders, the extended Venture Lab could be the defining period to ensure a successful market launch.

The Business Extension Module allows students to choose one of the four specializations offered:

Consulting Track: Corporate Project, HIOP and Electives
Enterprise Track: Internship, Electives and optional HIOP
International Track: Internship or Corporate Project + HIOP Long Exchange
Entrepreneurial Track: Extended Venture Lab, Electives and optional HIOP

All four tracks feature language learning, personalized coaching and one-on-one Career Booster sessions.

このほかにも、Short exchange week/Social innovation treks/International long exchangeといったオプションもあります。さらに、dual degree programもありますので、皆さんのニーズにあわせて最適なプログラムを選ぶことが可能です。

6 Ways To Make The Most Of The Covid MBA Experience

2/6付のPoets and Quantsに面白い記事が掲載されていました。
Coronavirus has changed the MBA experience. But it doesn’t have to ruin it




これまでのようにface to faceコミュニケーションを図ることは難しくなりましたがバーチャル上でのネットワーキングは非常に活発です

-Virtual tours of the school & town for international students who could not make it to campus;
-Small outdoor socially distanced get togethers (e.g., BBQs);
-Virtual (and in-person outdoor) workout classes taught or hosted by classmates;
-Virtual (and in-person) small group volunteering events for local charities;
-Voting drives for the November Elections


At Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, Fuqua MBA Association Co-President Mike Treiser recognized a potential concern among onboarding the incoming Class of 2022 MBA students due to the constraints of Covid-19. Working alongside admissions personnel and numerous other Fuqua administrators, they set up weekly virtual onboarding events for their incoming MBA students on topics ranging from life in Durham, how the Administration was handling changing safety regulations, and how incoming students could prepare for business school. The responses of these sessions were overwhelmingly positive from both students and administrators. Even after things return to normal, Fuqua still hopes to utilize this approach.
