Innovative Global MBA Program to Tap into Watson Knowledge

March 1, 2010

The Watson Institute will play a key role in establishing a groundbreaking new global MBA program, as part of a larger partnership just launched by Brown University and the IE Business School of Spain. The new IE Brown Executive MBA Program is described as a one-of-a-kind offering that integrates the innovative approach to management education at IE Business School with Brown’s excellence in the humanities, social, biological, and physical sciences.

The program is designed for senior managers with more than 10 years of experience who want to develop their entrepreneurial mindset and gain a deeper and much richer understanding of the global business environment.

Lectures in such Watson research areas as economic development and global security will be part of the curriculum, alongside offerings from Brown’s Cogut Center for the Humanities, Program in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship, and CV Starr Program in Commerce, Organization and Entrepreneurship.
