IE Business School MBA, No. 3 in the Forbes ranking
14/03/2011 - General
The biennial ranking gauges the return on investment of MBA programs based on the experience of 4,000 graduates from 103 business schools
IE Business School holds the no. 3 position worldwide in the ranking of non-US schools published by US magazine Forbes (http://www.forbes.com/bschools). The ranking, which is published every two years, evaluates the return on investment of MBA programs five years after completion as reported by 4,000 graduates from 103 business schools. Forbes divides MBAs into 3 categories: MBAs from US Schools; non-US one-year MBAs; and non-US two-year MBAs. IE Business School holds third position in the non-US one-year MBA category. In order to draw up the ranking, analysts from Forbes calculated the time it took graduates to recoup their investment and how their salaries have evolved over the last 5 years. The report underscores the fact that European business schools provide the best return on investment.
This year the IE Business School International MBA program has students from 57 countries, making it one of the most diverse MBA programs in the world. In order to leverage the international experience and take learning beyond management, the program includes modules designed to foster critical thought coupled with a capacity for teamwork and networking. Students are immersed in activities that include workshops on communication led by actors from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, or sessions led by professors from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, associated with architects like Norman Foster, David Chipperfield or Zaha Hadid. Furthermore, sessions on humanities provide insights into the Arab world, Indian and Chinese civilizations, and contemporary culture.
