IE Business School, 16th in the World in the Executive MBA Financial Times Ranking

IE Business School, 16th in the World in the Executive MBA Financial Times Ranking

The Global Executive MBA granted IE Business School the 16th place.

The annual ranking from the Financial Times looked at IE Business School’s Global Executive MBA, a program designed for senior executives with an international profile. The 15-month program combines periods of interactive online learning periods with intense residential weeks in four cities: Madrid, London, Los Angeles, and Singapore.

The Global Executive MBA provides participants with the opportunity to gain a global understanding of different cultures, team dynamics, and business practices. It is focused specifically on business innovation, global business, and global leadership to help executives not only navigate the C-suite but also the challenges of globalization and digital transformation.

IE Business School teaches the Global Executive MBA together with academic institutions including UCLA Anderson School of Management, Singapore Management University, and the IE Center for the Governance of Change. This year, 22 nationalities are represented in the class, with an average of 17 years professional experience. Forty two percent of the class has entrepreneurial experience.

“We promote the diversity of nationalities, profiles, and sectors in both our faculty and class profile.”

“The Global Executive MBA trains executives to lead and manage business on a global scale,” said Ignacio Gafo, Associate Dean of Global & Executive MBA Programs at IE Business School. “To do this, we promote the diversity of nationalities, profiles, and sectors in both our faculty and class profile. Students work in both online and face-to-face environments, traveling during the program to the US, UK, Singapore, and Spain – all with the aim of facing international environment to learn first-hand about global management and improving as business leaders.”

For this year’s edition, the Financial Times has evaluated Executive MBA program quality indicators such as participants’ degree of satisfaction, their career path, salary increase in the years after graduation, faculty and student diversity, the program’s international projection, expectation fulfillment and the amount of research carried out by business schools.

IE Business School has a broad portfolio of Executive MBA programs in classroom and blended format, in Spanish and English, including the IE Brown Executive MBA, which is a joint Executive MBA with US-based Brown University that integrates innovative management skills with the human sciences and practical business studies.
