IESE Business School Offers Fellowships for Six Journalists

  • #1 Ranked Business School by the Financial Times to Award Fellowships to Elite Group of Journalists

With the media landscape in constant flux, whether it be through the proliferation of social media channels, the way content is created and consumed, or the attacks on mainstream outlets, journalists are finding it more and more necessary to immerse themselves in professional development programs that will help them navigate this new reality.

To this end, IESE Business School is offering six fellowships – three to Spanish journalists and three to international journalists – to participate in its highly regarded executive education programs. Through these programs, selected fellows will be given the opportunity to advance their career development, recognition and prestige within the journalism community.  The program will build a solid foundation of general management and business knowledge, which will help in analysis and reporting, and give fellows the opportunity to network with high-level executives and future business leaders. IESE fellows will gain access to a top-level business education and receive a diploma from one of the world’s top business schools. 

The fellowship is open to full-time editorial employees of newspapers, magazines, wire services and broadcast news organizations who have at least ten years of experience.  IESE will commend candidates whose work demonstrates high standards of journalism, ethics and responsibility in the media. In line with IESE’s mission, which focuses on having a positive, lasting impact on business and society at large, the school will favor journalistic works which have promoted ethical business practices and exposed or amended situations of social unfairness. 

IESE Business School will cover 80% of the chosen course fees of IESE’s highly regarded Executive Education programs – Driving Leadership Potential, the Advanced Management Program and the Program for Management Development.

IESE Business School, which has campuses around the world, including in Munich, Barcelona, Madrid, New York City, and Sao Paulo, has been rated the number one business school in the world for executive education by the Financial Times for 4 years in a row – 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015. In addition, the IESE MBA was ranked #1 in Europe by The Economist in 2018; #2 in the world for two-year international programs by Forbes in 2017; and #4 in Europe by Bloomberg Businessweek in 2018.

This year’s dates for the fellowships are:

  • Application deadline is May 20, 2019 (inclusive)
  • Successful applicants will be informed before July 31, 2019
