Master in Project Management

General

Program Description

An innovative Business School concept

At IEBS we take a step forward compared to the traditional business school model:

  • The traditional learning model is rigid and not very flexible because it is based on the standardized and unchanging industrial society model.
  • The IEBS learning model is modern, flexible and adaptive because it is designed to respond to today's world and constant change.
  • We propose a learning that integrates technology and innovation as part of the subject matter, always offering the most current knowledge.
  • We think of a 2.0 learning model that gives priority to the ability to “learn to learn”, developing the skills necessary to successfully face today's challenges.
  • We integrate traditional models as the case method, with the most current learning currents, thanks to web 2.0.

After all, a book no longer guarantees us that we will learn everything we need to know in life.

At IEBS , the student is prepared to become a leading professional, capable of innovating, undertaking and providing value to their companies, in a changing environment, through a new way of doing business.
