“The Program for Management Development (PMD) was a transformational and enriching learning experience! At the beginning of 2019 together with a group of accomplished class mates, I joined this executive education program based on the practical case method and directed by a team of extraordinary professors. It completely exceeded my expectations and helped me to growth and consolidate diverse management, leadership and business competencies. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!”

Sergio Martin

PMD Munich 2017

The PMD program is a life changing experience, both professional and personal. The quality of the lecturers, the proved and pragmatical teaching method, and the selection of the contents, makes it a perfect program for rethinking a life project or developing a career. Thinking on leadership education and choosing IESE is a winning decision. And the human view that they give to the education is unique.

Walter Kurzrock

Director Shared Services for IT

PMD Munich 2014

The learning experience, the friendships and the networking connections, that where formed during and after the PMD were as outstanding and unique, as the value-based approach of IESE. For me, it was the first management program, which was not just” talking” and “concepting” about “values”, but being an example by living them in every IESE employee. I left the course with lots of practical learnings and precious doings for the daily challenges as digital leader

Christoph Stradiot

Senior Manager Capital & Dept Advisory

PMD Munich 2013

To break out from your daily working routine, to be challenged and be inspired by others – this is definitely what defines the PMD. Being a member of the first PMD class in Munich its simply astonishing to see how the organization and program developed and impacted others.

Florian Baur


PMD Munich 2016

“The IESE PMD came at the exact right time in my career. Moving out of managing a commercial department with a limited geographical scope into a global general management role it helped to fresh up a number of areas that were not so present in my previous role like finance and strategy. But even more importantly it refocused me on the importance of leadership. That a company’s success is about people, culture and purpose was probably the most important take away for my career. The outstanding quality of IESE’s staff (academic and non-academic) certainly played a major role why this program was a big success for me and I dare say for my company as well.”

Ignacio Fernández

The PMD with IESE in Munich improved my management skills with an international environment giving the human and corporate values that are necessary for our future. The faculty was always supportive and invited us to take an active role in the classes
