The IMD Executive MBA is a modular program consisting of three steps, giving you great flexibility by allowing you to choose the timing that works best for you and your organization. The program design only requires you to be out of the office for a period of 9 weeks in total: 3 weeks during the Foundations for Business Leadership (FBL) module, and 6 weeks during the Mastery Stage - of which three take place at IMD and three in different locations on Discovery Expeditions. Distance learning projects and modules are completed in between.
