Frequently Asked Questions

DO YOU OFFER SPECIALIZATIONS?

The IE-SMU MBA is a general management programme. We do not offer electives. All modules form part of the core curriculum and are therefore compulsory.

WHO WILL BE TEACHING IN THE PROGRAMME?

The programme will be taught by experienced SMU and IE faculty. Information about some of the contributing faculty members can be found under the Faculty section of this website.

WHAT IS BLENDED EDUCATION?

Blended learning combines the best of both worlds by complementing face‐to‐face periods with online learning. It allows exceptional professionals at a pinnacle moment in their career to continue their lifelong learning experience without putting on hold their professional activities for a prolonged period of time.

Eminently practical, we implement the same methodology used in full-time programmes through case method and group teamwork. Diverse topics are studied via the use of real-life case studies and company projects, debates in the online forums and videoconferences. Thanks to innovative use of new technologies, which allow us to replicate face-to-face teaching techniques, students are able to enjoy the same experience they would have in a traditional classroom.

During the online period of study, students are continually connected with their peers through synchronous and/or asynchronous interactive learning sessions which reflect the way companies operate in today’s global environment.

ARE THE PRE-PROGRAMMES CONSIDERED PART OF THE MBA COURSEWORK?

Yes. However, the pre-study is done at your own pace. We will provide materials as well as tutorial support that you can use at your own discretion.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAMME ENSURE CLASS INTERACTION AND NETWORKING?

The very nature of the Blended methodology facilitates networking. In today’s world, all students (face‐to‐face or online) use tools such as Twitter, Skype, Facebook, e-mail or  LinkedIn on a daily basis. The Online Campus reflects this intercommunication in a more structured and organized way, which allows for much deeper content. The programme itself is based on daily interaction between students, whether it is through group work, forums, projects or activities, and is mandatory that students participate on a regular basis. This steady communication between classmates is complemented by the face-to-face periods of the programme.
