The IMM Global Executive MBA program is a consortium of five leading business schools working together to provide a truly global executive education.

The program has provided advanced executive educational solutions for working professionals for more than 25 years, building upon four core characteristics:

Cohort Approach

When you are part of the IMM Global EMBA program, you interact with managers facing challenges similar to your own. Colleagues have at least five years of work experience and an average of 13-16 years. They come from 8-10 countries around the world representing many different industries and functional areas. 

Global Reach/Local Immersion

In the IMM Global EMBA program, you travel with your cohort to seven countries on four continents. The partnership of business schools around the world lets you experience how business takes place in each location and apply those lessons to your company and your career.

The IMM partner schools are:

  • Purdue University, Krannert School of Management, West Lafayette, Indiana, U.S.
  • Tilburg University, TIAS School for Business and Society, Tilburg, The Netherlands
  • Tianjin University, The College of Management and Economics, Tianjin, China

Flexible Schedule for Working Executives

The IMM Global EMBA is divided into a five-day launch week in the U.S. plus five two-week residencies spanning only 19 months. Between modules, students use online technology to prepare assignments, engage in discussions, work in teams, read ebooks, and watch instructor-prepared videos.

Two MBA Degrees

When you complete the program, you will receive two master's degrees: an MBA from Purdue and an MBA from TIAS School for Business and Society at Tilburg University in The Netherlands. The program is fully accredited by the AACSB International (Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business) and EQUIS (EFMD).

What does "IMM" stand for?

When this program was first created, it awarded graduates an International Master's in Management degree -- hence the acronym "IMM." The program has evolved and now awards an international Master in Business Administration degree. We decided to keep the recognizable IMM program name.
