The Iranian Business School was conceived of in 2007 by a core group of individuals who shared the same notion to enhance Iran’s management practices by bringing an internationally recognized standard of executive education to Iran.

The school opened its doors in 2010, with the first Strategic Leadership Program for senior managers of Iranian companies. Since its inception, hundreds of individuals have benefited from the school’s executive education programs, delivered by some of the world’s most respected academics in the field. IBS has been no less than ground breaking in the context of breadth, the quality of content and the elevated benchmark for teaching that it has brought to the Iranian market a market that hitherto had to travel abroad to access such optimal standards for business education.

Building on the success of these programs and further developing its proven model for collaboration with leading European business schools IBS signed an agreement in December 2013 with triple-crown-accredited Aalto Executive Education in Helsinki, Finland, to deliver the Aalto Executive MBA in Tehran. The first and second cohorts of students started their program in October 2014 and October 2015 respectively. Year 2016 sees the introduction of a new portfolio of open enrolment programs for senior executives and a general management program for high potential middle managers.
