Beyond the opportunity to interact in the classroom, professors and participants also engage in four intensive periods of online learning. The highly interactive online courses are taught via case studies, group collaboration and class forums. The professors guide the flow of the conversation, pose questions, and summarize learning at the end of the week-long session to support students in arriving at key learning objectives. New content is introduced each week through practical business cases and supplementary materials that come in a multitude of formats – all available through the same online platform.

“In the program we meld humanities with a traditional business management curriculum and create real world impact. The ability to apply critical thought to business is invaluable. An IE Brown EMBA expands the worldview of professional students and empowers them to stay ahead in a fast-paced global world.”


Patrick McHugh, Program Director

Online courses give participants the chance to read, reflect and contribute at their leisure, from any location, around the clock. Given the senior profile of the class, there is ample time for sharing experience and perspectives among classmates. Groups will work together via numerous internet tools, such as email, chat, messaging, video conferences, forging strong working relationships between teammates and developing virtual leadership skills which are critical for success in today’s business environment.
