IESE Business School


For over fifty years, IESE, the graduate business school of the University of Navarra, has been at the forefront of management education, developing and inspiring business leaders who strive to make a deep, positive and lasting impact on the people, companies, and society they serve.

IESE’s success is built on a humanistic approach to business and leadership, complemented by a world-class faculty producing ground-breaking research; the global scope of its programs, faculty, students, and campuses; a practical and relevant teaching methodology; and a growing alumni network of 38,000 professionals worldwide prepared to take on today’s challenges and lead business into the future.

Inherent in everything IESE does is a focus on people – on the personal and professional development of every individual partaking in the IESE experience – as the primary driver of positive change and impact on business and society.

Outstanding Faculty & Cutting-Edge Research

Over 100 full-time professors and around 70 external collaborators who represent almost 30 countries and hold Ph.Ds. from the top business schools in the world form IESE’s faculty. Their dedication to teaching, the impact of their research and their experience working with companies around the world are central to IESE’s continued success in providing excellence in management education.

Humanistic View of Companies and Leadership

For IESE, sustainable and long-term global prosperity can be achieved through a humanistic approach to business. This helps business leaders to influence companies and society positively, shaping the world for future generations. IESE strives to ensure that professionalism, integrity and a respect for others, are at the core of everything it does.

Global Scope of Programs

Every IESE program provides a global experience. Participants and faculty come from all over the world and the classes themselves are infused with the reality of the globalised economy providing a very strong international and cross cultural perpective. Furthermore, IESE brings this experience to locations across five continents and has an active Alumni community spread all over the world.
