Become an IMD MBA. Create our Future.
The IMD MBA is ranked #1 by Forbes for ROI because it is the natural home for talented, experienced and ambitious women and men who are determined to make our world a better place. We invite you to join them.
Stretch your thinking, learn from others & innovate
As a citizen or resident of a country in Africa or the Middle East, this is your chance to compete for a place in IMD’s international, boutique MBA program – a personalized and experiential learning journey that sharpens your business skills and shapes you into a reflective and responsible leader.
The IMD MBA “Create our Future” Challenge is a one-day intense think-in during which you will join a preselected group to brainstorm how society could and should address some of its most pressing challenges.
Those who make the most impact, who contribute most to the idea generation and who demonstrate leadership potential will be shortlisted by our selection team for a personal interview and potentially be offered a place in the IMD MBA 2023 program. The winner will receive a 40,000 Swiss Franc scholarship towards our tuition fees.
We want you to stretch your thinking, learn from others, think out of the box and innovate. Pitch your ideas. Inspire and be inspired by a whole generation of grounded, future-oriented optimists.
