IE Business School launches ‘first Tech MBA in Europe’
Spain’s IE Business School has announced the launch of what it calls the ‘first Tech MBA in Europe’.
The one-year programme at IE University is expected to commence in September 2020.
The IE Tech MBA provides an immersive learning experience in areas of technology, management and transformational leadership for managers who want to develop their career in technology companies or for those who want to work in technological positions in other sectors.
IE Tech MBA candidates must have a training background in a STEM area (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) and the skills required to manage technological projects.
The IE Tech MBA will also have a Digital Female Leadership Mentorship to promote diversity and attract women with a STEM background.
Martin Boehm, Dean of IE Business School, said: “In a digital, interconnected world, companies need managers with the talent and training to promote technological innovation. Technology rules out lives, rules the world and accelerates our capacity for innovation.
“Areas such as data management, artificial intelligence or automation take centre stage in corporate strategy. Our Tech MBA will equip managers to propel their business into the future.”
IE Tech MBA will have international exchange opportunities
Course content will include a strong focus on three main areas: Business Management, Technology Immersion and Transformational Leadership. There are also to be three tracks in Digital Transformation, Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence and Digital Finance.
The training is divided into four periods, allowing participants to receive specialised training in different areas of technology.
Areas of training will include Fintech, Insuretech and Edtech as well as specific technological tracks on digital transformation, data analysis and artificial intelligence, and digital finance.
This will also include content on Fintech, Blockchain, Robotics Process Automation, Advanced Automatic Learning and Emerging Technologies.
IE Tech MBA students are also able to choose electives from the International MBA and can choose to participate in exchange programmes with other schools such as Cornell University, NYU Stern School of Business or MIT. They can also participate in different internship programmes.
