  • Testimonial

    “I left IESE’s GEMBA with a broader mindset, deeper knowledge and a bigger heart thanks to the case discussions, country visits and conversations with people from all over the world. I’m much more aware of my cognitive biases and how they can influence people’s decision making.”
