[photopress:MBA_Navarra.jpg,full,alignright]In Forbes’ fifth biennial ranking of business schools, IESE has been named the top non-U.S two year business school.
IESE Business School, the graduate business school of the University of Navarra, (and yes that is in Spain as seen in our illustration) has once again come top of the list of business school rankings, according to the latest survey published by Forbes. IESE currently offers programs China, together with CEIBS in Shanghai.
According to the survey of top non-U.S two year business school, the results in order:
London School of Business
Manchester Business School.
The ranking takes into consideration several variables such as the return on investment — the student’s compensation five years after graduation, minus tuition and their foregone salary during school.
Forbes notes that in its:
‘fifth biennial ranking of business schools highlights the appeal of one-year programs. Our survey ranks schools based on return on investment — meaning compensation five years after graduation minus tuition and the forgone salary during school. Each of the top five one-year foreign programs beat out all two-year programs because the opportunity cost, in lost wages, to attend is materially less.
‘IMD in Switzerland, which ranked first among such one-year schools, had a median five-year gain of $169,000. By comparison, Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business (for the United States), which tops the list of two-year programs for the second time, had a median five-year gain of $115,000.’
In the case of IESE, alumni reported they entered the program earning $43,000 and within five years of completing the course were earning an average of $170,000.
IESE has been offering business education for executives since 1958. More than 28,000 executives worldwide have participated in an IESE program.
