IE Business School Master in Management ranked 13th worldwide

IE Business School climbes 12 positions from last year's edition.

IE Business School’s Master in Management program has climbed 12 positions to be ranked 13th worldwide in the 2021 Financial Times Master in Management ranking. In ranking the business schools, the Financial Times considers alumni career progress, school diversity, and international experience and research.

“IE Business School’s Master in Management program has come a long way. We have redesigned the curriculum and created new tracks in, for example, Finance, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management. In addition, we have achieved student gender parity — in fact, the IE Master in Management is among the most diverse and internationally mobile student body.”
Stéphanie Villemagne, Associate Dean of the Master in Management program at IE Business School

“This latest ranking from the Financial Times demonstrates our solid standing on the world stage. It is also a tribute to the resilience and innovative spirit of the IE University, and particularly the students and alumni of the IE Business School MIM community who, during this past year, have continued to grow professionally and find ways to make a positive impact on society and in each other’s lives by supporting one another through job search, group projects, and volunteer contributions.”

The Master in Management program at IE Business School is a one year, full time program offered in English as well a bilingual English and Spanish option. Students not only master the building block of business management but can customize their program for their desired career path and choose from six different tracks and over 50 electives.

With more than 60 nationalities represented in class, the IE’s Master in Management program offers students an invaluable opportunity to expand their worldview, deepen their understanding of cultures and business across the globe, and create the foundation of a diverse professional network. As Soraya Nour, a 2018 graduate from Beirut, Lebanon commented, “Being an MIM student [allowed] access to unlimited networking opportunities. Whether with classmates, professors, staff members, university guests, conference speakers or club members, every occasion offers possibilities to meet people from different backgrounds, with different worldviews.”

This latest Financial Times ranking follows the latest edition of the QS World University Business Masters Ranking in which the Master in Management program was awarded 5th worldwide, and the school’s International MBA positioned 7th worldwide and the Master in Finance 11th worldwide.

This academic year, IE Business School welcomes Lee Newman as dean. Newman joined the faculty of IE University in 2009 and in the following year became the founding Dean of the school known currently as the IE School of Human Sciences & Technology (HST). He has an interdisciplinary PhD from the University of Michigan in Psychology and Computer Science, an MBA and Master in Technology & Policy from MIT, and a Bachelor in Engineering from Brown University.

In addition, IE University has opened the doors of the IE Tower, its new vertical, technological and sustainable headquarters in the north of Madrid that reaffirms Spain’s capital as a leading global educational hub and joins IE University’s current locations in Madrid’s financial district, as well as the historic campus in Segovia, in the 13th century Convent of Santa Cruz la Real. 

The University’s Liquid Learning model transforms the educational experience in all undergraduate, postgraduate, and executive education programs. With the new model, programs have an innovative design that integrates classes on campus for all of IE University’s students, who currently hail from 140 countries. Hybrid sessions simultaneously connect face-to-face students with online students for the same immersive experience and academic quality.
