"Should I do a MiM or an MBA?" | IESE Business School

“Should I do a MiM or an MBA?”

IESE launched their Master in Management (Master in Management) program in 2019. In this post, we explore the mayor differences between the MiM and the MBA at IESE.


We get this question all the time and unfortunately, there is no clear-cut answer. Each program has its own time and place; it really depends on where you are at in life and what your career aspirations are. Ask yourself, what are you trying to achieve today in your career? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
