The latest ranking from Bloomberg Businessweek places IE Business School’s International MBA program as among the best in Europe for entrepreneurial studies.

The latest Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranking, 2023 Best Business Schools for Europe, highlights IE Business School’s strength in entrepreneurial studies, with the School positioned second in Europe in the category.
