The IE Business School, whose campuses are in urban Madrid, holds the 2012 Number 1 position in the Financial Times annual survey of European business schools. Among FT’s criteria are career and salary progression of business school graduates, the international slant of the school programs, the percentage of international students and faculty, and the fulfillment of expectations of students and client firms.
The following pictures IE’s Alumni Career Progress:
• Weighted salary = US$ 156,658
• Career Progress rank = 9
• Aims Achieved rank = 91
• Placement Success rank = 75
• Employment at three months (%) = 92
The IE Business School was founded in 1973 under the name Instituto de Empresa (hence IE). Today 87% of its student body come from 70 countries, while 95% of its faculty hold doctoral degrees.
IE’s prestigious program portfolio includes a new Executive MBA+ and the Global MBA+ both of which combine management component with a choice of specialization in Global Management, Corporate Finance, Information Technology, Marketing and Sales, Tourism Management, Sports Management, Biotechnology Management and Digital Marketing.
Still relatively new on the block, IE’s incredible track record can take anybody’s breath away: In 2010 the Wall Street Journal ranked IE Nº 1 business school in Europe. It was the third worldwide in Forbes 2011 ranking of non-US business schools, and apart from topping FT‘s list in Europe, FT’s non-US school 2012 worldwide ranking puts it at 8th place.
IE’s self-fulfilling slogan seems to be “success begets success”!
