    The Executive MBA is a face-to-face programme taught over a single academic year, from October to September, which provides experienced professionals (entrepreneurs, businesspeople, general managers and middle-management staff in any company area) with a comprehensive, integrated understanding of the management techniques and executive skills involved in business organization and administration in today’s complex, competitive and dynamic market.

    The programme attracts professionals from around the world. A typical class profile has a percentage of international students of over 90%. The official language of the master is Spanish and good command of the language is needed.

    The objective of this programme is to provide training that enhances the careers of the new leaders needed in today’s society. Our teaching staff comprises renowned university professors and working professionals with long and successful track records. Our methodology is practical, active and highly participatory, using case studies, debates, tutorial sessions, expert lectures and simulations. The structure of this demanding Executive MBA is broken down into nine modules, which will ultimately lead students through the completion of a successful business plan.

    Lectures take place in the evenings and occasionally on Saturday morning, allowing students to combine lectures with their work.

    There are 24 student vacancies every intake. The small classes ensure a personal approach and direct contact between lecturers and students.
