Our unique MBA programme is a transformational experience and aims to develop essential professional and soft skills to nurture leaders of the 21st century. The programme explores and develops all areas of corporate management, with a strong emphasis on the most in-demand skills in business: analytical skills, data management, business intelligence and a wide array of soft skills. The IBS MBA experience is a one-year full-time programme, designed for professionals with 3 to 5 years of work experience.

Our programme first focuses on ‘core skills,’ i.e. the necessary competencies to communicate and collaborate with other stakeholders, to acquire solid organizational, project management and up-to-date financial and analytical skills.

The second part of the programme focuses on ‘functional skills,’ i.e. advanced skills for managing roles in corporate organisations, including data management and business intelligence, customer relationship management and strategic decision-making skills. The programme concludes with a capstone project assessing your newly acquired business acumen and business intelligence skills.
