International Business

Dates: 3, 4 & 5/11

In the everyday reality amplified by COVID-19, the world is confronted with the fact that human behavior is the cause of a lot of misery and can at the same time be the solution. With some good will, developed companies and countries can leverage this crisis as an accelerator to excel in the international playing field. This requires that they must develop strategies responding to the major world challenges.

Companies are increasingly expected to not only refrain from causing damage to the environment, but to rather make a proactively positive contribution to society, together with partners. The ball is not only in the court of the business community. Solutions to the associated risks require public and private cooperation in which companies and governments must take responsibility, with citizens also playing a prominent role. If we want to face major challenges, such as sufficient clean water and CO2 emissions reductions, we must look at the entire value chain and its global interconnectedness.

Entrepreneurial Finance

Dates: 7, 8 & 9/11

This course is primarily designed for students who plan to get involved with a new venture at some point in their career -- as a founder, early employee, advisor or investor. However, the course is also appropriate for students interested in gaining a broader view of the financing landscape for young firms, going beyond the basics of venture capital and angel financing to look at venture debt, bank finance, corporate venture capital and receivables.



The goal of the course is to help managers make better investment and financing decisions in entrepreneurial settings. The course covers all stages of the venture's life cycle from startup to exit, and delves into issues such as deal structures, incentives, business models and valuation.

The course address key issues faced by entrepreneurs: how much money should be raised at each stage; when should it be raised; what is a reasonable valuation of the company; and how should funding, employment contracts and exit decisions be structured. They aim to prepare students for these decisions, both as entrepreneurs and as investors. Finally, we look at a variety of financing models across the venture's life cycle, with an aim to understanding the incentives of each type of investor, the relative costs and benefits of each source of funding and the connections between a venture's financing strategy and its product-market strategy.

About IEEM

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.

IEEM is part of a wide network of associated schools, including IESE (Spain). Other prominent schools in the network are: IPADE (Mexico), ISE (Brazil), IAE (Argentina), INALDE (Colombia) and ESE (Chile). IEEM has a Permanent Advisory Committee composed of professors from the prestigious Harvard Business School (USA) and IESE Business School (Spain).

Since its founding, IEEM shares strong bonds with IESE, the School of Business of Universidad de Navarra, ranked No. 3 for its MBA in the European ranking and No. 3 in the world according to The Economist (2022). In addition, IESE has been ranked No. 2 in the world in education for executives, according to the Financial Times (2022).

The relationship between IEEM and IESE is built on the active participation of IESE professors as guests on regular programs, and on a wide range of cooperation activities for academic development of both institutions, within the framework of research and professor training.
