Class Profile

The IBEAR MBA program prides itself on curating a diverse group of participants from across the globe each year. The typical IBEAR MBA class is comprised of 55 participants from 12 to 17 countries. On average, participants are 37 years old and have 12 years of work experience; 80% are in the 32 to 40 age range. Two-thirds of our students are self-sponsored, and are actively seeking jobs. One-third of our students are sponsored by companies and family-owned businesses. Many are married and attend the program with their families. A small class sizes ensures closer interpersonal relationships, greater opportunity for cross cultural learning, multi dimensional networking, and a close knit alumni group that forms lifelong relationships with each other and the program. It is this diversity combined with our participants’ depth of experience that makes the IBEAR MBA unique and distinguishes it from other MBA programs. The rich diversity of participants can best be understood by reviewing the bios of the IBEAR 44 class, which is currently in session.
