The school offers a full portfolio of MBA programs, a Ph.D. in management and an extensive range of global executive education programs designed for professionals at various stages of their careers. IESE is consistently ranked among the world’s top business schools by prominent international publications such as the Financial Times and The Economist.

IESE’s Short Focused Programs (SFPs)

IESE’s Short Focused Programs are designed for senior executives responsible for driving strategic change within their organization.

IESE’s Short Focused Programs (SFPs) address the most relevant business issues and allow global business leaders to zero in on managerial excellence and integrity. The SFP portfolio is continuously updated to reflect the latest management advances and is based on three main pillars: Immersion, Concentration and Transformation.


The Short Focused Program portfolio is specifically designed to give participants an edge on how to best address today’s business challenges. Each program focuses on a single business challenge with a practical, multidisciplinary approach.


In a privileged learning environment and convenient program format, participants gain invaluable insights from renowned faculty members, thought leaders and peer participants, and learn how to apply them to their own situations.


Designed to fit the demanding schedules of results-oriented managers, each program delivers immediate impact by offering conceptual frameworks and practical tools that drive effective and meaningful change for both the individual and the organization.
