Think Large Think International

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. Developed 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 varied 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.
