In early 2013 IE´s School of Social & Behavioral Science, in partnership with IE Executive Education, will be launching an exciting new program developed specifically for experienced executives interested in achieving outstanding business results through transformational leadership. By gaining a deep understanding of the hard science in positive psychology and human behavior, participants learn how to optimize overall strategy, functional processes, and organizational design to achieve optimal performance in themselves and the people they lead.

As part of the launch of the program, and for this first intake only, alumni of IE Business School Executive Education’s Top Management Programs are eligible for a 25% grant towards the program tuition fees, upon obtaining admissions to the program.  That’s an award of 11.250€ for graduates of our AMP (all formats), SMP, OEMP, PGEF, TBL, VMP and GSMP programs.  For more information on how to apply for the Executive Master program and benefit from this special grant offering, please contact the Admissions team for the Executive Master in Positive Leadership and Strategy at

For more on the Executive Master in Positive Leadership and Strategy, check out the video on YouTube or the program web page here.


Recent scholarship holder Jan Köchling talks about his experience at IE Business School…

“Alumnus Jan Gerrit Köchling (30) hat in Kiel und Cadiz BWL studiert und anschließend in Madrid als Unternehmensberater gearbeitet. Nach ein paar Jahren kehrte er nach Deutschland zurück. Doch Spanien ließ ihn nicht los – und so entschloss er sich zu einem MBA-Studium in Madrid. Damit das Fernweh auch dort nicht zu groß wird, nimmt er an einem “long exchange” teil und geht in die USA…”

IE University and the Organization of American States (OAS) work together to help top professionals from OAS member countries access the postgraduate-level studies the need to lead change en their home countries, via scholarships and internships.  Together, both organizations also help these same professionals obtain a real world, international experience that provides new ideas, new contacts and new opportunities.  To learn more about the scholarship program, see the OAS’ web site here or visit the IE Financial Aid web site here.

Fall 2012 Scholarship Recipients

For the Fall 2012 group of scholarship recipients, 12 professionals from 9 different OAS member countries obtained scholarships for study at several of IE’s schools, with scholarship values ranging from 5.400€ to 23.200€ (US$6.600 to US$28.500).  This year IE will be receiving professionals from the following countries: El Salvador, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, United States and Venezuela.

Programs of Study and Internships

The 12 scholarships have been awarded to students who will be studying the following 4 programs at the following IE schools: IE Business School (International MBA, Master in International Management), IE School of Arts and Humanities (Master in International Relations) and IE School of Communication (Master in Corporate Communication).

Once scholarship recipients have graduated from their program, top academic performers can apply and be considered for internships at the OAS in Washington, D.C. as a way to complete their international experience.  So, in addition to getting additional European experience, top performers can also compete for an additional professional opportunity in the US, where they can apply what they learned during their master program at IE.

Impact in Scholarship Winners’ Home Countries

After their studies at IE, and their internships if the scholarship recipient successfully obtains an internship with the OAS in Washington, all grantees must return to their home countries to contribute to local development initiatives be they in the private and/or public sector.  This commitment to return completes the professional development and knowledge transfer process.


We have a special policy that exceptionally allows candidates for three joint degrees to apply for a scholarship after they have begun their International MBA at IE Business School.  The applicable programs are:

1) International MBA – Brown PRIME (Program in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship)
