The iaelyon IMBA is a unique executive program, entirely taught in English over 11  months. International guest speakers, professors and practitioners come to share their  knowledge and expertise with a culturally diverse classroom. De veloped around a flexible  part-time format, with classes taught on Fridays and Saturdays, the IMBA offers the  opportunity to follow courses all the while keeping a full-time  job, thereby minimizing any  potential disruption for candidates and employers.

Recruited on an international scale, participants come from var ied cultural backgrounds  and benefit from different academic and professional experiences ; the diversity of a  multicultural and multidisciplinary group helps to provide a comparative approach. Seminars are interactive with modern teaching methodologies including in-class  case studies, references to concrete professional situations, in class role-playing and  interactions between peers and lecturers. Participants are not  only exposed to best  management practices, they are also complementary and learn from one another.
