IE’s Global Online MBA Ranked No. 5 Worldwide | IE Business School

IE Business School is the only non-US business school to be included in the top 25 schools of the latest Princeton Review ranking of online MBA programs.

The latest Princeton Review ranking examines online MBA programs around the world, measuring five key components: academic content, selection processes, faculty, program technology and career services. IE Business School is the only non-US business school to be included in the top 25 schools of the ranking.  The Global Online MBA program has also been ranked this year among the best in the world by The Financial Times (2nd worldwide) and QS (1st worldwide.)

IE’s Global Online MBA is a 17-month program which uses tools, methodologies, and content focused on digital transformation and technological disruption, leadership, and management. It combines online learning with three residential periods on the School’s Madrid campus, allowing executives from around the world to combine the program with their professional responsibilities. More than 50 nationalities are represented in the class profile.

IE Global Online MBA students benefit from the WOW Room, IE Business School’s classroom of the future, unique in Europe, which uses artificial intelligence, simulations and big data, among other resources, to reinvent the learning experience.

During the program, participants can also opt for the Global Immersive Week, which is an additional face-to face period that allows them to immerse themselves in yet another business culture.  Locations have included Miami, Mumbai, San Francisco, Sao Paolo, Singapore, and Shanghai.

For the ranking, the Princeton Review tallied its list of the top 25 online MBA schools for 2020 based on its 2018-2019 survey of administrators at more than 110 business schools offering online MBAs. The company also factored in data from its survey in 2018-2019 of more than 6,000 students enrolled in the online MBA programs. More than 60 data points were weighted to determine the list and rankings. The criteria focused on five core areas: academics, selectivity, faculty, technical platforms, and career outcomes.

In addition to the Best Online MBA ranking, the Princeton Review compiled a list of best on-campus MBA programs.  IE Business School is included on the list which highlights schools outside of the United States.
