In its annual ranking of top MBA programs, Business Week has ranked IE’s International MBA program No. 2 worldwide among non-US schools (Business Week compiles separate rankings for US and non-US schools).
I write about it because I am currently finalizing my International MBA at IE Business School (December 2008).
As IE Business school, we received the best grades of any international school from former students. We also received A+ scores from recruiters on how well we prepare students for positions in General Management and how well we develop their analytic skills. To top things off, students gave the IE IMBA an A+ in terms of teaching quality.

Having said this, you have to take all rankings with a grain of salt. Methodologies vary and schools fluctuate. So we shouldn’t read too much into a particular spot. But the fact that Business Week, the most important US ranking, now has reached similar conclusions about the quality of our MBA and particularly about the caliber of IE students as other leading publications such as the Financial Times and The Economist is very gratifying and makes us proud.
