IESE Business School climbed two spots in this year's Financial Timesranking of MBA programs, placing 7th in the world. In the ranking, which was published on January 28, the school came in third in Europe. The global list was headed by Harvard Business School, Stanford and Wharton.

In Europe, IESE followed London Business School and Insead. In the accompanying article, the FT noted the rise of business schools in the Asia-Pacific region and the dominance of U.S. schools, with six occupying spots in this year's top 10.

IESE's full-time MBA program was established in 1964 as Europe's first 2-year MBA. Since it was first offered, the program has been guided and assessed by the Harvard-IESE Advisory Committee. In 1980, the program became the first bilingual MBA program of its kind in the world. Today, roughly 80 percent of IESE students are international, reflecting diverse nationalities. In addition to the full-time program, IESE offers the Executive MBA and the Global Executive MBA.
