Do you consider military service as work experience?
IE Business School
6/10 07:18PM
Hello Moshe, you need 3 years of work experience to apply for the International MBA. The IDF experience can be taken into consideration in some cases but it depends on the profile, what you did there exactly, etc. You could also think about applying for the Master in Management which doesn't require work experience.

Do you have any deferral process?
IE Business School
6/10 07:22PM
Hello Itay! Yes, you can apply for the International MBA. The average work experience of the students have around 5-6 years of experience, so maybe thinking in the Executive MBA could be an option for you too.
Hello Ben! Yes, once you are admitted to can defer your admission one intake.

Thank you very much for your answer! I'm not sure yet if it will be right for me to apply to the MBA or to the EMBA since I feel I'm borderline for both. How do you consult me to move forward?

Will the studies be on campus or online?
IE Business School
6/10 07:28PM
Italy, I think it could be useful if we could have a call to talk more about your profile but thinking if you want to study a full-time program or blended could also help you to decide.
Hello Ofir! We have both options
It depends on how do you want to study your MBA
