The criteria included the level of satisfaction of program participants, career progress, the increase in salary in the years following graduation, levels of diversity among the schools’ faculties and student bodies, the international slant of programs, the extent to which participants’ aims were achieved, and the quality of research at each school.

The School’s Executive MBA offering  includes the IE Brown Executive MBA run jointly with Ivy League Brown University, renowned for excellence in the field of humanistic, social and scientific disciplines, and the Global Executive MBA, a blended program run in English with onsite periods in Spain, China, the US and Brazil.
