Program structure and duration
The IMD Executive MBA is a modular program consisting of two stages: the Foundation Stage and the Mastery Stage. You can choose both the timing of the Foundation Stage and of the Mastery Stage modules.
The Foundation Stage comprises two parts: first, Foundations for Business Leadership, a 20-day intensive program at IMD, and second, a five-week distance learning module - Advanced Management Concepts.The GMAT or other aptitude tests are not required.
Taking place over the course of one year - and starting either in April or November - the Mastery Stage combines three face-to-face core modules at IMD, three Discovery Expeditions and five distance learning online modules which take place between the core modules and Discovery Expeditions and span the full year. During the online modules you will work on a series of in-company, group, and individual assignments.
Timing is flexible, spreading nine weeks out of the office and approximately 50 weeks of distance learning over a minimum of 15 months.
