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.
