IE Business School No 1 in Entrepreneurship in Europe, according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek

IE Business School No 1 in Entrepreneurship according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek

IE Business School ranked 9th in Europe, 1st in Entrepreneurship Category, by Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

IE Business School’s International MBA program holds the No. 9 position in the 2019-2020 Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranking in the European region. The ranking is based on interviews with business school deans, professors, administrators, and analysts, more than 26,804 surveys of MBA students, alumni, and recruiters, as well as employment data provided by schools.

Furthermore, IE Business School’s International MBA is the best in Europe for entrepreneurial studies, according to this latest Bloomberg Businessweek ranking.

According to the magazine, “Students see entrepreneurship as central to their overall training, whether they want to start their own businesses or work at a big bank.” The ranking for the entrepreneurship category took into consideration whether alumni felt their school took entrepreneurship as seriously as other career paths and rated the quality of training they received to start a small business or startup. In addition, recruiters weighed in as to whether graduates showed exceptional entrepreneurial skills and drive.

The International MBA is IE Business School’s flagship full-time program in Madrid.

The program takes an integrative and innovative approach by combining core business knowledge with customizable labs plus an elective period of 10 concentration areas. In fact, a total of 45 percent of the International MBA is customizable.

During the Core Period, IE International MBA students choose from one of four labs that provide uniquely packaged, relevant, and hands-on material not commonly found in an MBA curriculum. The Startup Lab, for example, immerses students in an incubator-like atmosphere that serves as preparation for the IE Venture Lab or a catalyst for launching a company post-graduation.

This latest result from Bloomberg BusinessWeek further consolidates IE Business School’s position among the best MBAs in the world, and follows the No. 8 position achieved this same week in the Financial Times composite ranking of European business schools.
