IE Business School has climbed 8 places this year to consolidate its position as one of the worldâ??s top business schools. In this yearâ??s survey Harvard headed the worldwide ranking, followed by Stanford, Wharton and IE Business School.
The criteria on which the AmÃ©rica EconomÃa MBA ranking is based includes the schoolâ??s prestige, networking potential, knowledge of the Latin American region, scholarship programs, international agreements and alliances, the return on investment offered by its MBA program and career progression of its graduates.
Gonzalo Garland, Director of External Relations at IE, sees the schoolâ??s position in the ranking as a result of IEâ??s work in the Latin American region over the last three decades. â??IE has offices in 8 countries in Latin America that provide support for IE students while serving as a platform for networking among our alumni and for building relations with institutions that play a key role in each country. We are proud that our MBA program has achieved 4th position worldwide and will continue to strive to attract the best candidates and top professors from around the world to meet the demands of the international business communityâ?. This year, the student body of IE Business Schoolâ??s International MBA program comprises young professionals from 57 countries, making it one of the most diverse MBA environments in the world.
