About the program
Global Reach and Local ImmersionIMM Global Executive MBA is known as “the most international executive MBA” program around the world. We bring together top performing corporate executives, managers and entrepreneurs from around the world to develop and enhance their global knowledge and skills. IMM’s unique program structure incorporates a combination of international residential learning modules, peer-to-peer experiential learning and applied field and case studies as well as extensive global networking opportunities. By closely linking program content and modules, our faculty members ensure that learning across the modules is integrated by both content and location.
The Right Preparation for Global ManagementThe geographic boundaries that once defined mangers’ roles and what they needed to know to excel are becoming more and more obsolete. This represents a tremendous career opportunity for those prepared to lead teams and companies across borders.
The IMM Global Executive MBA program can ground you in the academic theory and give you the hands-on experience to be such a leader and decision-maker.
While it’s unrealistic to become an expert in every country of the world, or even every major business capital, it is possible to rethink and deepen your understanding of business fundamentals as they apply to other countries. It’s also possible to learn firsthand about best practices in a select group of countries that typify today’s global business landscape. That’s what the IMM Global Executive MBA program is designed to do.
Why IMM?The decision to pursue an MBA degree, and which school to attend, is a very personal one. These are among the top reasons we think you should consider the IMM program:
- Leads to two American and European MBA degrees simultaneously
- Allows you to continue your current job without interruption and balance work-home-school demands
- Taught by accomplished, international faculty
- Challenges you with relevant curriculum focused on learning by doing
- Connects you to professionals from around the globe and from a variety of fields
- Ranked one of the best executive MBA programs worldwide for “international course experience” by the Financial Times for nearly 10 years
- One of the first international MBA programs of its kind
How it WorksAs an IMM student, you will participate in five residency sessions in six different countries at IMM’s partner and hosting schools. Each residency lasts for two weeks. In between the residencies, you will take online courses, or “distance learning” courses. The program takes 20 months to complete.
