ESIC recognized as the 27th best business school in the world delivering full-time MBA programs
ESIC has been recognized by the prestigious American magazine Bloomberg BusinessWeek for the 3rd consecutive year, this time as the 27th best business school in the world delivering full-time MBA programs, within the new edition of the "Best International Business Schools 2017" ranking. For its elaboration, Bloomberg BusinessWeek has evaluated the best 177 MBA programs in the world and has analyzed the opinions (collected by conducting surveys) of 9,000 recently graduated students business schools, 10,000 alumni and more than 11,000 talent recruiters.
In the latest edition of the mentioned ranking, with INSEAD taking the lead, ESIC has been recognized by Bloomberg BusinessWeek as the 27th best business school in the world for its International MBA training, and its Master in Business Administration and Business Management (Full-Time MBA), improving its position in comparison to the one obtained in the previous edition of the ranking.
This ranking also recognizes ESIC as the 5th in the world with regard to the starting salary of recently graduated students. This takes into consideration the average salary of those graduate students that found a full-time job within 3 months after having completed the program.
Furthermore, the survey completed by the MBA alumni places the school as 12th in the world (it was ranked 28th in the previous edition) with regard to its Return on Investment, the MBA participants satisfaction with their jobs and salaries after completing the program, the impact of this program on their careers, and how often the MBA alumni recommend the program to other people.
The methodology used by the ranking published by Bloomberg since 1988 uses a formula that assigns a ratio to every one of the consulted sectors of the schools: 35% assigned to the surveys done by employers, 30% to the surveys done by alumni, 15% to the current students’ surveys, 10% to the employability indicator (understood as the percentage of students that found a full-time job within three months after having completed the program), and the last 10% assigned to the starting salary indicator after finishing the MBA.
"Being recognized by Bloomberg BusinessWeek for the third consecutive time shows the relevance of our International MBA (IMBA). The experience of being able to live and work in two continents that approximately represent 60% of the world's economy is something that only ESIC’s IMBA can offer, and this is what is reflected by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. This is the reason why the IMBA former participants are developing their careers in all the 5 continents," said Gaston Fornes, IMBA director.
"Our MBA program, with more than 3 decades of experience, strongly focuses on the student. This provides highly-qualified professionals, with great business and human values, to companies that are in a highly competitive global environment that requires nonstop adaptation to change," declared Antonio Martín Herreros, MBA director.
