The IE-SMU alliance brings together two elite educational institutions, creating global access to unparalleled business knowledge for students, faculty, and executives worldwide. Combining IE’s strong management fundamentals with SMU’s innovative curriculum, the two schools have developed the IE-SMU MBA with one unique vision: Preparing top professionals for complex leadership challenges requiring effective management skills, with an added feature of having an Asian flavour to its curriculum. The programme provides a unique experience by fusing a global curriculum, provided by IE Business School, with an Asian perspective, perfected by SMU.


The IE-SMU MBA is offered in a Blended learning environment, which combines five face-to-face residential periods with interactive online modules. This allows professionals from diverse backgrounds, industries and cultures to connect, regardless of their geographic location, travel schedules or work commitments.


Project-based learning allows participants to apply newly acquired knowledge to design and test real change with partner companies. Under the guidance of our faculty members, teams will undertake a 10-month Action Research Project with the aim of devising value creation goals for the company with whom you are collaborating. Past projects have focused on the implementation of new strategies, improvement of a business process with specific targets, design and development of a new/enhanced product or service, or development and implementation of a market entry plan.


The IE-SMU partnership combines the best of theory and practice, including the analysis of business cases, simulated environments, as well as faculty-guided, cross-functional, real-life projects. The programme provides professionals from within and outside the region with a competitive advantage by supplying them with the necessary tools to become an Asia-Pacific business expert.
