Leaders in Public Executive Education
IESE Business School and Harvard Kennedy School are leaders in public executive education
Today, the Harvard Kennedy School has evolved into one of the world's most eminent social science research institutions – housing 15 research centers and institutes, and more than a dozen executive education and degree programs – with worldwide reach and influence. More than 27,000 Harvard Kennedy School alumni reside in 137 countries and serve in a wide range of positions in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
Since 1958, IESE Business School has delivered first-rate business education programs to more than 38,500 executives from over 100 countries, and it has been ranked amongst the best graduate schools for years. IESE Business School has a faculty which is made up of more than 175 professors from 29 countries, holds 31 Research Centers and Academic Chairs, and teaches executive programs in 10 different countries. IESE Business School hosts a meaningful variety of activities related to the public administration area, including, the Public Management Leadership Program (Programa de Liderazgo para la Gestión Pública), custom programs for diverse public agencies, the Public Management Leadership Forum (Foro de Liderazgo para la Gestión Pública), the Public-Private Sector Research Center and the Chair of Governance and Leadership in Public Administration. IESE's first strategic alliance with Harvard goes back to 1963. Harvard’s professors counseled IESE during the launch of its MBA program, which proved to be such a fruitful experience for both sides that the partnership has since continued and been strengthened through a Harvard-IESE Advisory Committee.
