IESE is the graduate business school of the University of Navarra and stands out as one of the European leaders in business management education. At IESE, professors strive to inspire the business leaders of tomorrow, motivating students to work towards making a positive impact in the lives of other people, companies, and society as a whole. They take a humanistic and international approach to education, with seven different campuses all over the world teaching that global progress and success are possible through an approach to business that focuses on people, respect for others, and professionalism in all aspects of business and entrepreneurship.

The principal teaching tool at IESE is the case method which brings real-life business problems into the classroom in order to help students establish a framework for good business decision making. Unlike most undergraduate programs that focus on lecture-based learning, the students of case method teachings do most of the talking in the classroom, preparing them for a future as a business leader. The highly experienced professors guide the students with questions to prompt reflection and develop the students’ problem-solving skills on their own.

The faculty is made up of over 100 full-time professors and about 70 external collaborators from the world’s top business schools. Furthermore, IESE alumni include over 40,000 business professionals all over the world, so networking opportunities are endless and an IESE degree proves to be highly valuable long after graduation.
