Scaling up Readiness self-assessment tool
Prior to the start of the program, you will be asked to complete and submit an online Scaling Up Readiness Self-Assessment Tool. This will enable you to get a better sense of what your business scale-up challenges and opportunities are composed of financial status, operations, strategy, environment, human resources and company culture questions, the tool prepares you for your scaleup efforts.
Growth plan and mentoring
Throughout the program, you will work on your organization’s Growth Plan. You will walk through a recommended Summary Growth Plan at the program start. You can then build and complete your own Growth Plan as you go through the program courses.
Each firm will have the opportunity to hold two (2) one-to-one structured check-in sessions with an assigned mentor during the blended portion of the program to further guide you in the development of your Growth Plan.
Networking events in Beirut and Madrid will help you build business relationships with fellow participants and guest experts and businesspersons.
The program has a blended methodology—a combination of face-to-face in-class sessions and online sessions.
The IE Online Campus provides an exceptional communication platform, bringing together peers, professors, and school staff any time of the day, regardless of their location. This virtual campus is the basic web platform which supports the program’s online activities.
Through the Campus, each participant can access video conferences, forums, readings, slides, technical notes, multimedia documents, and any other files needed for the program. They can also use the Campus to conduct forums for group work or class discussion.
The online sessions are in the form of a live video conference -- a virtual class where professors and students interact in real time via video and audio connection using webcams. Sessions are a mix of interactive lectures, case or exercise discussions, and group presentations. Each session lasts 90 minutes.
