Methodology


IEEM adopts a participant-centered learning methodology. Active learning efforts are made by participants, while professors’ role is to encourage and promote learning.

This is the most effective approach for the development of managers and executives: learning through critical reflection and mainly by “doing”, i.e. by deciding.

Case discussion

A case describes a business situation with complex dilemmas that must be resolved by the main character – typically a manager.

The participant needs to understand the situation or problem at hand, generate alternatives for solving it, choose one, and be prepared to defend his or her proposal.

Roleplaying, simulations, games


The same active learning principle, but with a more intense experience.

Besides exchanging arguments, participants have to endure the consequences of their initiatives and decisions.

Group Sessions


After individual preparation and prior to main sessions, cases are discussed in small groups. The objective is to exchange opinions and points of view so as to identify different angles and approaches to each case decision.

Conferences


Practical sessions are complemented by lectures in which professors share a conceptual view that helps understand the topics previously discussed, permanently and with greater depth.
