Real time business. Real time education
The expertise of the Financial Times
The learning innovation of IE Business School
Real partnerships, true customisation
— Bahare Heywood, Clifford Chance
Business schools have been offering customised development programmes for decades. But few deliver on their promises to provide practical solutions to real business problems. That’s where we come in. Our entire approach to learning rests upon the idea of true partnerships with our clients, co-creating custom learning solutions that help them solve their strategic challenges.
Our programmes go beyond traditional, theoretical business education. As well as more than 500 academics from the world's top business schools, we also bring expert insights from practioners, consultants and business journalists who operate close to the action. Together, they bring new perspectives to the complex challenges facing today's global organisations.
This unique combination results in customised programmes that challenge entrenched mindsets and foster initiatives that help our clients to push boundaries and lead the future of their industries.
