The news follows a series of positive international ranking results over the last year, including being named best in the world for Executive Education by the FT for the third year in a row.
In 2017, the IESE MBA was ranked fifth best in Europe.
The FT ranking draws particular attention to the international diversity of the IESE MBA program, which scored high marks across the board on all related areas:
"The IESE MBA is a program with a high personal impact," said Prof. Julia Prats, associate dean of MBA Programs. "It offers students a boost on their path towards becoming outstanding leaders, whether that´s in the corporate world or with their own entrepreneurial projects."
"The program has a strong international focus, grounded not only in the diversity of its faculty and students, but also in its structure and content. It also develops a deep knowledge of business relationships and management skills, allowing participants to enhance their long-term careers in the world of management," Prof. Prats added.
Indeed, the Financial Times ranking again shows how the IESE MBA is one of the best programs for students looking for professional progress. The school´s MBA places eighth worldwide for Career Progress, which measures students´ career progression, and second place in the world among the top business schools, for the percentage of salary increase after graduation.
The 19-month IESE MBA is a highly innovative course, combining the case method with state-of-the-art learning methodologies based on experiential learning. Among these, the development of real projects (in start-up and in large multinational companies) stand out. The IESE MBA curriculum also offers students a sound foundation in the most innovative aspects related to the new economy and digitalization.
