IESE's MBA, no. 7 in the World

FT ranks school among top 10 for 4th consecutive year



Holding firm for a fourth consecutive year in its position among the top 10 MBA programs worldwide, IESE placed number seven in the world according to the Financial Times rankings published today. Leading the pack this year are Harvard, Stanford and LBS, with Wharton in 4th place and INSEAD and Columbia and 5th respectively.

The ranking surveys the class of 2010’s career progress and salary increase while taking several other factors into account, including aims achieved and diversity. This year the FT noted Hong Kong’s rise in the rankings and the fact that, despite the economic downturn, the world’s elite business school grads have seen their salary almost double since completing their MBA.

With this year’s ranking, IESE continues to consolidate its position among top tier MBA programs. As the first two-year MBA in Europe, since the program’s inauguration in 1964 the school has enjoyed the support and guidance of the Harvard-IESE Advisory Committee. Since then the program has achieved many other important milestones such as becoming the first bilingual MBA program in 1980 and today attracts a student body that is 80% international. In addition to the full-time MBA, IESE also offers Executive MBA and Global Executive MBA programs.
