Formal education is where the educational system specifically refers to the norms of university education, whilst private business academies and schools are comprised in the so-called non-formal education since they do not form part of what the Spanish law considers the university education. However, private business academies and schools reflect an education based on two imperatives: the careful selection of applicants, and the training of those participants to reach an individual level of excellence corresponding to the demands of the business world. IEMD Graduate Business School is registered with the appropriate authorities under the Spanish Law and is organised exclusively to provide executive education particularly Executive Master of Business Administration, Focused Programmes, and Organisational Specific Programmes (OSP).
