For the first time ever, a non-American institution has topped one of the leading rankings of business schools.
This week there is an article in The Economist about the worlds top MBA schools, and for the first time a Spanish school is number one.
IESE topped the EIU’s list because it scored particularly well in two
categories: opening new career opportunities, and the starting salaries
of its new graduates (their average—of $142,000—was higher than that at
any American school).
I have to admit that if I where to do an MBA in
Europe (in the future), IESE is probably my first choice… its a great
school and it would also be fun to live in Barcelona!!
After some research with friends, it seems more plausible to assume
that IESE students earn approximately 80.000 Euros per year and not
$142,000. I am not sure where the EIU gets their figures from.
