IESE Business School was ranked number one in the world by the Financial Times in its 2011 survey of open enrollment executive education programs. The school earned exceptional marks for student satisfaction, relevance of course content, follow up and facilities.
Michael Jacobs of the FT, in the article accompanying the ranking, also wrote that "IESE remains number one for the diversity of its faculty and its partnerships with other executive education providers (as measured by the FT's partner school criterion)."
The ranking - which surveyed 65 top schools located all over the world - evaluates two types of executive education programs - open and in-company. IESE, which delivers tailored programs for numerous leading firms, occupies the 7th position in the FT's ranking of custom programs.
In the FT's general ranking, IESE ranked third in the world, behind HEC and Harvard Business School. The general ranking is compiled from the scores underlying open enrollment and custom program surveys.
