IE University holds the No. 6 position in Europe and No. 29 worldwide in the ranking of universities drawn up by Youth Incorporated and the education supplement of Times of India, “Education Times”, which has one of largest circulations on the planet.

IE University has climbed 8 positions since the previous ranking, to become a leading university both in Europe and worldwide. Youth Incorporated sees IE University as eighth in the world in terms of university business programs, and tenth in terms of campus facilities. It also places IE University in seventh position worldwide for innovation in teaching, three places higher than last year’s ranking.

IE University and Pompeu Fabra University, which holds the No. 94 position, are the only two Spanish universities that made the ranking. The ranking is based on a survey carried out in over one thousand centers of education in fifty countries. Participants comprise students, recruiters and professors, who evaluate the key factors in university education like program content, employability and job opportunities after graduation, levels of diversity among student body and faculty, innovation, international exchanges, student satisfaction, campus facilities and financial aid. One of the main features of the ranking is that it contrasts the opinion of universities and their students with that of leading international recruiters who intend to recruit from them in the future.

“It gives us great satisfaction to know that recruiters worldwide recognize our international profile, and that they also value our commitment to education in the field of management and the employability of our students,” says Isabel Sánchez, Adjunct Vice Rector and Director of Undergraduate Studies in Business Administration at IE University.

The first three places in the ranking are held by US universities Harvard, Stanford and Pennsylvania. IE University holds the No. 29 position worldwide with a score of 94.9 out of 100, making it the top-ranked university in Spain and sixth in Europe. IE University’s position in the Youth Incorporated ranking is the latest in a series of achievements in terms of recognition by international media, including the latest higher education ranking carried out by International Herald Tribune, which places the IE University in No. 43 worldwide in terms of employability of its students.

How do you know a Law degree is for you?

Written on January 3, 2010 by Dirk Hopfl in IE News

Soledad Atienza, the director of the Bachelor of Laws, talks about the future for lawyers, and what it takes to follow your passion. “Nowadays lawyers need more than just legal training to become successful lawyers.  They need to be business oriented, they need to be trained in management, they need to be innovative and they need to be international.”  


What made you realize that Law was what you wanted to study?  

I was looking for a program that would open my mind to the professional world, not just to the legal field, but also the business and political world; a program that would help me understand the way the world is run and how companies, governments and people interact.  My law degree has given me the perfect frame to work in different professions, always being able to apply the legal knowledge and skills I have acquired studying law. 

What advice can you give to someone who is considering studying a degree in Law?

 If you want to become a lawyer, you should know that the legal profession is a hard one; if you practice as a lawyer you will have a lot of responsibility and you will work long hours.  But in return it will give you independence and an intellectual profession– Independence because you will have to make decisions concerning your clients based on your own analysis of the situation and recommending what you consider is best for your client or telling them what is right and what is wrong. And it is intellectual because this profession is about studying and thinking.  

This is a degree that will open doors to the professional world.  You will be trained to practice the law but you will be ready to do nearly anything you want in the business and political world.  Read more…
