FTIE shares the No. 1 position with French business school, HEC. The ranking is published on an annual basis and is based on results achieved by leading European business schools in FT’s partial rankings of MBA, Executive MBA, Masters in Management and Executive Education programs, published throughout the year. Hence IE Business School has maintained the position of No. 1 in Europe that it achieved in the same ranking in 2012, thereby consolidating its position among the top schools in the world.

In order to prepare its “ranking of rankings” Financial Times employs criteria that include international reach of the school and its programs, career and salary progression of business school graduates, fulfillment of expectations of students and client firms, and levels of research.

This week has also seen the publication of the QS Global Business Schools Report 2013/14, which ranks IE Business School as No. 1 in Europe and No. 4 in the world for entrepreneurship, after Harvard, Stanford and Wharton. The ranking, drawn up by UK consultancy firm QS, is based on the opinions of over 4,300 recruiters who hire MBA graduates.

The authors of the QS Global Business Schools Report underscore the fact that MBA employers are increasingly placing an emphasis on the entrepreneurial talents of their new hires. Employers value the talents of graduates who can, in tough economic times, develop fresh sources of revenue, while the graduates themselves find greater security in testing their entrepreneurial ideas with the financial backing of their employers.

    Rock n roll IE,
    Working on business strategies far into the next century. This is actually the second in a series of posts regarding social media marketing strategies. In this series we will define social media marketing, show social media at work, will make an effort to end up with social media explained and show how you can use social media as marketing. I was not aware that this was to become a series but I received several requests for that same format we used for podcasts and link building. So here we go… Jack is just starting his marketing plan and one part is of course social media. This post tells you step by step how to prepare your posts, extractions you can make to make your job easier, and how to get that initial use of social media. Jack is confused as to how to use social media marketing and just how many people use social media but here we show him how to harness the use and power of social media as marketing. Remember this is only the first of many segments on the marketing of your blog. I do think however, that this next couple of posts will make a believer out of you and Jack.

  5. Some people don’t think that formal education plays a big role in shaping entrepreneurship skills. Even they need to admit that business college diploma definitely brings opportunities for developing an astonishing career. Some people like to point out that great entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs, didn’t receive formal business education, but they tend to forget the fact that such a Pinoy Channel entrepreneurs lived to learn.
