Program Schedule and Format
The program has 5 face-to-face periods for a total of approximately 7.5 weeks in residence over 15 months. The face-to-face periods take place at the campuses of IE in Madrid, Spain, Brown University in Providence, USA and on location in Cape Town, South Africa.
The module in South Africa is an ‘immersion experience’, specifically designed for students to experience the ‘beyond business’ focus of the program in a real setting. The week in Cape Town provides context for applied learning— applying knowledge acquired in previous classroom and online sessions. This rich field experience, in which new opportunities are proposed, explored and understood in context, is intensified and amplified by the dynamic clashes of culture, politics and human need in the selected site.
Interactive, online learning takes place between the face-to-face periods, ensuring continuous learning and interaction between classmates for the duration of the program.
