IE Brown EMBA Tops Ranking’s Section Focused on “Program Quality”.

The latest ranking of Executive MBA programs from The Economist has positioned the IE Brown Executive MBA program as third in the world, and first in Europe and Spain. In addition, the ranking, which occurs every two years, places the IE Brown EMBA first in “program quality,” which measures student satisfaction, and fifth in the individual sections focused on “faculty,” “networking,” and “career progression.”

The IE Brown Executive MBA is a unique 15-month program that combines IE Business School’s experience and prestige in management education with Brown University’s excellence in humanities and social sciences. Designed to equip leaders with a broad vision and an ability to innovate in complex and evolving business climates, the program blends interactive online learning with in-person sessions to bring a diversity of perspectives into the learning experience.

“The IE Brown Executive MBA goes beyond traditional business education. This program is built on the belief that the theory and methodology of the humanities and social sciences are relevant to the management of organizations and the development of talent, products and services in a global economy,” said Patricia Carnicero, Executive Director of the IE Brown Executive MBA.

“I admire each and every one of our IE Brown students and alumni, their passion, intellectual curiosity and desire to create impact is contagious.”

“The program has faculty from both IE Business School and Brown University and an incredible group of students with backgrounds in a wide range of industries,” continued Carnicero. “I admire each and every one of our IE Brown students and alumni, their passion, intellectual curiosity and desire to create impact is contagious. These are individuals that seek bold, innovative solutions for today’s business and societal challenges.”

“The IE Brown Executive MBA has changed me both personally and professionally”, said Cherise O’Kennedy, a recent graduate of the program. “By challenging my thinking to help me become a deeper and more critical thinker, I’ve come to look at business as having a social purpose, and to be more reflective of the intersection business and social purpose within making critical business decisions.”

Recognized as one of the world’s leading educational institutions, IE University develops online and face-to-face learning methodologies that benefit the institution’s network of communities, made up of more than 60,000 graduates in positions of responsibility in 165 countries. With the start of the new academic year in September, IE University will deliver teaching through a liquid learning model that will see face-to-face and online students connected simultaneously in the classroom. IE University’s commitment to liquid learning represents a new step in educational innovation and responds to the challenges faced by the education sector internationally.
