Bloomberg Businessweek has ranked IESE’s full-time MBA as the second-best program in Europe. The Bloomberg Businessweek Best European B-Schools 2023-24 ranking highlights the IESE MBA´s exceptional learning experience, rich networking opportunities and focus on entrepreneurship, as well as its ability to prove a solid investment for participants.
This year’s edition of the Bloomberg Businessweek ranking gathers the views of graduating students, recent alumni, and recruiters to measure and comment on MBA programs throughout Europe. It then assesses them across four areas: Compensation, Learning, Networking, and Entrepreneurship. (More on the Bloomberg BusinessWeek methodology.)
With IESE scoring high marks across the board, the results shed light on how current and former students continue to value their IESE MBA experience, as well as the high regard in which recruiters view IESE talent.
In particular, IESE ranked no. 2 for Learning, reflecting the quality, depth and range of instruction in IESE’s MBA, as well as its relevance to real-world business situations. IESE’s innovative approach to learning, which combines discussion-based methodologies with highly personalized follow-up and support, was also key to its high marks.
IESE also performed well for Networking, and Compensation, taking the no. 3 spot for both areas. IESE´s high scores for networking are down to the breadth and depth of its active alumni community of more than 55,000 executives, a highly regarded careers service and excellent links with top recruiters, among others. Meanwhile, IESE´s no.3 rank for Compensation highlights how an IESE MBA continues to be a solid investment for participants.
Finally, IESE´s focus on helping participants develop an entrepreneurial mindset, and support across all areas of the entrepreneurship ecosystem, also resulted in good scores for Entrepreneurship, where it ranked fifth.
The result caps off a strong year for the IESE MBA, which has seen it place among the top positions in the most recognized international rankings in 2023, including ranking no.3 in the world by the Financial Times.
