IESE Business School

At IESE Business School we want to educate leaders to whom we can entrust the future of business and society. As the business school of the University of Navarra, our activities are centered around three management axes: a global mindset, a general management approach and a people-centered vision, with the ethics and social responsibility that entails.

Master's Programmes



For more than 60 years, IESE has been at the forefront of management education and leadership development. Our mission today remains the same as it was back in 1958: to educate and inspire leaders who wish to have a positive and lasting impact on people, business and society.


IESE offers Master of Business Administration (MBA), Executive MBA and Executive Education programs that are consistently ranked among the top 10 in the world.


Our Research Centers are led by senior professors who are recognized experts in their fields, supported by a team of researchers and assistants. Partner companies and organizations collaborate with our centers to define research objectives.


The mission of our Career Development Center (CDC) is to collaborate with companies, helping them find the best talent for their organizations by recruiting IESE MBAs and other alumni. It also equips students with the right tools, resources and mindsets to help them drive their careers forward, not only during their time at IESE but for the rest of their lives.

Housing services

Short-term accommodations

In Barcelona, Madrid, New York, Munich and São Paulo where short-term accommodations are required, normally your program will inform you and make reservations at local hotels.

Long-term housing

With a large international student population, Barcelona has a range of prices and housing options available throughout the city. Though there are many ways to find an apartment on your own, often it is more efficient to work with an agency. Based on student feedback, we recommend the following agencies for your search. If you choose to use their services, please be sure to identify yourself as an IESE student:

Library services

Most of our 45,500+ books can be borrowed, with the exception of certain copies of recommended reading books and reference works. Journals may not be borrowed.

You can also download most of our 127,000+ e-books, which you can search for on our E-Books Finder. The loan periods for e-books vary but are generally one or two weeks.
