IE Business School Recognized by Bloomberg Businessweek in Preparing Students for Post-COVID Business Environment
Creativity, innovation and startup know-how among desired skills.
According to a new quarterly update based on Bloomberg Businessweek’s Best B-Schools 2019 Survey, IE Business School is in the top ten for a business school education that emphasizes innovation and creativity and ranks third in the world for offering training in starting and running a small business or startup.
The 2019 Bloomberg Businessweek survey of business schools around the world, in which IE Business School holds the ninth position for MBA programs in the European region and first in the entrepreneurship category, is based on responses from graduating students, alumni, and recruiters, as well as employment data. The latest quarterly update has sorted those results in regards to the views of students and alumni.
“IE Business School provides the ideal education for individuals who want to focus on driving innovation and change, and for those with an interest in entrepreneurship — whether that is because they have dreams of founding a company of their own, working at an SME, or want to bring entrepreneurial thinking into a worldwide corporation,” said IE Business School Dean Martin Boehm. “These traits highlighted by Bloomberg Businessweek — creativity, innovation, and an entrepreneurial mindset — will prove ever more important in the post COVID environment, for us as individuals and as active members of the business community.”
Offering a range of programs from bachelors and masters to doctorates and executive education, IE Business School is an intrinsically innovative institution with the spirit of entrepreneurship at its very foundation. Starting in September the school will incorporate IE University’s new liquid learning model that allows students to choose to attend class on campus or online and receive the same immersive experience and academic quality. All programs will have a hybrid format that will provide flexibility for students and reinforce active and personalized learning that focuses on solving real world problems. All courses have been adapted for this new format to include new methodologies, content, and academic materials.
