Please join us for our Virtual Open Day for the IE Brown Executive MBA Program. During this event, you will learn how two powerful institutions deliver a unique experience that goes beyond the boundaries of traditional business education.

You will hear directly from the Academic Program Directors from Brown University and IE University about the content and structure of the program and have the opportunity to speak with them personally about any questions you may have.

We will also be joined by a distinguished faculty member of the program who will lead the group in a class simulation, so you can see first-hand what it is like to experience the program.

Lastly, we will be joined by several alumni of the program who will share their experiences and explain how they have leveraged their MBA in their professional career.

ABOUT OUR SPECIAL GUEST 

Gayle Allard has been a professor of Managerial Economics for IE Business School since 2002.  She is a native of California, although she has lived and worked in Europe for 25 years.  She studied at the University of California (PhD in Economics) and Johns Hopkins University (Master in International Affairs), and her research has centered on labor markets, in particular the position of youth and immigrants in European labor markets and how labor-market rigidities affect unemployment. Recently her passion for development issues has led her to do research and lead student projects in African countries, especially Ethiopia, where she and students are helping the U.S. company Kinetico develop a project for clean water. She appears regularly in leading international media as a commentator on today's key economic problems.
