  • Course description

    Deusto Business School is launching its international full-time MBA in January 2013. Our intention is for it to become the most prominent and international program of the School.


    Deusto MBA delivers a unique experience to participants through its approach and methodology. The differential nature of the program is encapsulated in four specific features of the curriculum:

    - The Approach to Sustainability

    - The approach to the Digital Networked Enterprise

    - Innovation and Entrepreneurship and a hands-on approach to a Real Project

    - The Sustain4 Service Learning Program:
    1. Theoretical Training in the Classroom
    2. Practical Training in the South



    During this semester, students will become familiar with the content of the course and the skills needed to heighten their awareness of the context and environment in which companies operate.

    From an international perspective, country analyses and the macro and micro perspectives of the global economy, students will gain the skills needed for formulating a strategy for aligning global trends with local markets. This will be supported by
    financial analysis and an examination of capital markets.


    During this semester, students will work on the execution of strategy, i.e. how to sell a product or service, how to organize a company and how to prepare to implement operations.

    The objective of this semester is for students to master the implementation of any strategy, identify the most critical parts of the company, and discover the link between them. However, to introduce a strategy, managers need to be aware of change
    management techniques and how to work in teams in order to transform them and/or a company.



    This semester takes place in San Sebastian and New York, and focuses on the  elective courses. The students will be able to choose electives from four different tracks: Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Finance, Sustainability and the Digital and
    Networked Enterprise.

    It is expected that students will chose four electives courses during this period: two in San Sebastián and two in NY.

    Deusto MBA is not a traditional program and is not for everyone. It is designed for participants who seek to enhance their managerial competencies and skills, whilst developing the appropriate attitudes and aptitudes for solving the management
    and leadership challenges of the 21st century. In short, we are seeking to help shape authentic managers of change who are prepared to look for more complex but sustainable solutions to the corporate global challenges of today and of the future.
