Experience IESE
and it's Executive MBA.
IESE Business School invites you to experience the case method and learn about our Executive MBA Munich program in an Online Open Session.
We’ll explore a case study on Netflix 
in a discussion led by Professor Eduard Calvo, and hear from alumni of our Executive MBA. It will be a great opportunity to learn more about the program and live the IESE experience.
Join us online on January 31, 2024!

Why Joinan Open Session?

During the program, the case study method will be the primary learning methodology.
In Open Sessions, you will get a first glimpse at how our EMBA classes work. It´s an exact replica of a real class and it will show you part of the preparation process. You will prepare the case individually, see what the core issues are and where you would put your focus, and then discuss the case with the professor in the plenum.

The Case MethodWhat would you do?

This method was first used at Harvard in the early 20th century and has since become hugely popular thanks to its effectiveness in developing knowledge, skills, and attitudes among experienced students.
Here are some main benefits:

  • Shape new perspectives through active listening with classmates and teachers.
  • Improve critical judgment through discussion. Expand the capacity for diagnosis and reflection.
  • Develop a cross-sectional view of general management to face any business decision that can be applied to your company

Unlike the traditional teacher-focused methods, at IESE the class is based on the students and their ideas. Students study the case individually, prepare it in groups and tackle the problem to be solved. The professor facilitates and guides the classroom debate. Addressing the prognosis prepared by the participants, the professor encourages participation from the entire class in order to deepen the discussion with different points of view stemming from diverse experiences and cultural backgrounds.
