Financial Times ranks the IE Executive MBA program No. 7 in the world
Madrid, October 25 2010. IE Business School has maintained the No. 7 position worldwide in Executive MBA programs according to the 2010 Financial Times ranking.

The ranking considers IE’s Executive MBA as one of the best business schools in the world in terms of graduates’ subsequent career progress and increase in salary, and fulfilment of participants’ expectations. The result further consolidates IE’s position as a leading international business school for senior management training programs.

In this year’s edition, authors of the FT ranking based their evaluations on 16 indicators of quality in Executive MBA programs at 100 business schools worldwide. Said indicators included degree of satisfaction of the student body, career progression following graduation, diversity of program faculty and student body, the program’s international focus, the extent to which the program came up to participants’ expectations, and the school’s level of research.

Gonzalo Garland, vice president for development at IE Business School commented that “Our Executive MBA is a highly consolidated program which reflects some of the key features of IE Business School, namely a highly international faculty and student body, with some 100 nationalities on campus, a commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation, and a humanistic approach. We are constantly reviewing the content of our programs to ensure that they are markedly innovative.”

The IE Business School Executive MBA offers a range of delivery formats designed to meet the demands of different executive profiles. These include weekly or bi-weekly classes, 100% onsite programmes, or a blended format, all with Spanish and English versions.

IE’s position in this Financial Times ranking is the latest in a series of excellent results obtained by the school in international rankings in 2010. Earlier in the year Financial Times placed the School 3rd in Europe and 6th in the world in MBA programs, The Wall Street Journal ranked it 1st in Europe, and América Economía positioned the School 3rd in the world.
