Executive MBA

The Executive MBA Programme has been co-designed by IBD Business School and Ashridge Executive Educaton of the U.K.. Currently, the programme is jointly offered by IBD and SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities.  Created with practicing managers in mind, the Executive MBA is designed for individuals whose careers are already well advanced and who desire to achieve more. It is for both seasoned professionals and executives at the peak of their career and mid-level managers wishing to accelerate their way to the top.

The curriculum of this programme features a complementary blend of solid theoretical foundations with hands-on business experiences and in-depth focus on people issues in organisations. The 12 modules cover all the important managerial functions embedded in critical analysis, economic globalisation, business strategy and innovation. The modules culminate in a Master’s Project, providing an opportunity to develop further knowledge, synthesis, research and analytical skills, and to apply them to business situations of interest to programme participants. Meanwhile, through various Personal and Leadership Development (P&LD) and Mentoring activities, participants receive substantial support, for the duration of their studies, in achieving their career goals beyond the MBA.

An Executive MBA diploma is granted by IBD Business School. Through co-designing the programme with Ashridge, the diploma reflects the quality requirements of the UK Code for Higher Education. Additionally, participants receive a post-graduate certificate issued by SWPS University according to the Polish law.
