IE University´s BBA ranked 8 worldwide

Written on March 29, 2013 by Dirk Hopfl in IE University

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 8th 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.

IE University ranked no. 45 worldwide by IHT

Written on October 28, 2011 by Dirk Hopfl in IE University

IE University holds the No. 45 position worldwide and No. 21 in Europe in a survey conducted by International Herald Tribune.

It is the first time that 2 Spanish universities feature among the top 50 worldwide – Universidad de Navarra (41) and IE University (45).  The ranking analyzed the opinions of 3,000 CEOs and senior managers from 1,000 companies in Germany, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, US, Spain, France, Italy, Holland and UK, about the best 150 universities in terms of graduate employability. US universities Harvard, Stanford and Yale achieved the top positions in the ranking, which includes 23 universities in North America, 21 in Europe, and 2 in Asia. European institutions include 2 Spanish universities, Universidad de Navarra (41st) and IE University (45th).

International Herald Tribune drew up the ranking in collaboration with consulting companies Emerging (France) and Trendence (Germany), with the aim of evaluating opinions held by senior managers, who were asked to allocate scores to universities in their country, continent, and other world regions. The main findings of the survey include the fact that recruiters prefer to contract graduates from universities that have close ties with the corporate world, where students accumulate professional experience during their university career. Hence this international ranking serves to identify the best centers of learning in terms of subsequent employment opportunities.

“The fact that our university model is recognized by recruiters worldwide is a source of great satisfaction,” says Salvador Carmona, Rector of IE University. “IE University enjoys close links with the corporate world, and this report clearly states that the connection between universities and businesses is playing an increasingly important role”.

On October 17 and 18 IE University hosted the International Conference on Reinventing Higher Education, organized jointly with The Chronicle of Higher Education. The conference brought together the presidents and rectors of US, European, Asian and Arab universities to examine key issues that included the challenge of ensuring employability among university graduates, currently a hot topic among international media, as evidenced by articles like this in the International Herald Tribune.
