The course has a duration of 522 teaching hours between the months of September 2017 and September 2018.

Learning is carried out with a faculty made up of professors-tutors, practicing professionals with extensive teaching experience and frequently using real cases of internationalization. The academic activity is carried out with different means and techniques, through reading technical notes, resolution of cases, participation in discussion forums, attendance at web conferences, among others.


  • Train professionals capable of leading the internationalization process of their companies and organizations (both private and public), designing, implementing and directing the opening of new markets.
  • Train professionals with a solid knowledge of the principles and techniques of business management in the international context and in the main areas such as economic-financial, marketing and market analysis, strategy, logistics and distribution, technology and legal and tax environment, among others.
  • Transfer to students the vision, way of working and methodology of professionals specialized in the international context, through a faculty that incorporates the best specialists with practical experience in the international arena combined with extensive teaching experience.


  • The MBA is extended, in the teaching part, during an academic year, from September 2017 to September 2018. It has 522 teaching hours taught entirely using an online methodology.The learning is carried out on varied activities and real practical cases that will allow the student a very complete vision of the topics covered. The contents are organized into modules (subjects) whose duration is one or two weeks. Each module has a teacher-tutor who is an expert in the subject. Each module begins with an activity plan that indicates the tasks to be carried out each day of the week and the time available for each of them. The student, in addition to the comprehensive reading of the documentation, must carry out the proposed activities. Among them, there are practical exercises and cases of various types, both individually or in groups, which are supervised by the teacher, as well as self-assessment exercises. In addition, it is common to hold discussion or debate forums on a topic raised by the teacher, together with web conferences to resolve doubts, debate and conclusions. The online methodology of ICEX-CECO allows to combine the daily activities of the student with the work in the course. Rest and recovery periods are established that serve the student to resume activities that he could have left pending. Teaching-learning is centered on the student and the group. The exchange of information between the teacher, invited experts and students is constant, allowing knowledge to be built not only from the theoretical content, but also from the interaction between all the participants in the course. This interaction is an essential part, since the international business world relies more and more on networking or contact networks. The maximum number of students in each group is small. The estimated dedication to studying materials and carrying out activities and exercises proposed for each of the modules is 12-15 hours per week.
