Program Description

An innovative Business School concept

At IEBS we take a step forward compared to the traditional business school model:

  • The traditional learning model is rigid and not very flexible because it is based on the standardized and unchanging industrial society model.
  • The IEBS learning model is modern, flexible and adaptive because it is designed to respond to today's world and constant change.
  • We propose a learning that integrates technology and innovation as part of the subject matter, always offering the most current knowledge.
  • We think of a 2.0 learning model that gives priority to the ability to “learn to learn”, developing the skills necessary to successfully face today's challenges.
  • We integrate traditional models as the case method, with the most current learning currents, thanks to web 2.0.

After all, a book no longer guarantees us that we will learn everything we need to know in life.

At IEBS , the student is prepared to become a leading professional, capable of innovating, undertaking and providing value to their companies, in a changing environment, through a new way of doing business.

The products that most influence society are digital: they make our lives easier and solve problems in the most intuitive and efficient way possible. Behind every digital product there is a UX Designer: the professional in charge of creating unique experiences so that the product is part of the client's life. This is precisely the objective of the companies, so we are at a time when the user experience and the design of digital products is essential for the business.

According to an Adobe study, 87% of UX directors and leaders agree that integrating product designers is one of the top priorities for the organization. In addition, 73% mentioned that they planned to double the number of these profiles on their equipment in the next five years.
