Our  International Executive MBA programmes have been designed to meet the needs of global leaders, people who work in multicultural environments, who need to see things with different perspective. We support these leaders throughout their careers.<o:p></o:p>

- The Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) is a world-class programme from Georgetown University, ESADE Business School and INCAE Business School. At the intersection of geopolitics and business, the Georgetown-ESADE-INCAE GEMBA equips participants with the knowledge, skills, and global perspectives needed to manage and lead effectively in today's chaotic global economy. <o:p></o:p>

We have designed this senior executive program to make the most of the expertise of four world-class schools: Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, the Walsh School of Foreign Service, ESADE Business School, and INCAE Business School. Our combined strengths in global business strategy and management, policymaking, international relations and leadership make GEMBA an exceptional program. With 6 12-days modules around the world, participants have an opportunity to learn through immersion, interaction and networking in key business markets, while blending insights from leading academics and innovators in business and government. The result is a transformational experience – on both a professional and personal level.

- The
 Executive MBA at ESADE is a demanding, academically rigorous programme designed to strengthen your leadership and management skills which combines education in Barcelona or Madrid with study periods at prestigious universities abroad. Participants take all the regular classes in a period of 12 months and then they have 4 additional months in which to complete their education with an extensive range of optional courses which will allow them to configure the area of specialisation based on their professional objectives and the direction they want their career to take. Our goal? That your Executive MBA translates into a vital and qualitative change in your professional career.
The programme takes place over
 four separate phases:  
Phases 1-3: Core Subjects (12 months)
The first phases cover three fundamental business concepts: Company, Strategy, and Development in Complexity.
Phase 4: Intensification or Exchange Programme (4 months)
In this final phase you can choose between the following options according to your own preferences and needs:
INTENSIFICATION: Select from a wide range of specialized content and tailor the programme to perfectly fit your career goals.
EXCHANGE PROGRAMME: Join one of our prestigious international partner schools for four months to further expand your network and your perspectives on business. 
The programme also includes three international study periods (in Europe, LatAm, Asia or the USA) that take place during phases 2,3 and 4.<o:p></o:p>
