IE Business School was established over 30 years ago and offers world class MBA programs in both Spanish and English. IE is one of only 55 business schools globally that are accredited by all three of the major accreditation bodies – AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.
IE is currently ranked 8th in the Financial Times Top 100 Business Schools Global MBA Rankings and is the 3rd highest ranking European business school.
If you drill down further in to the Financial Times rankings you will find that IE ranks 4th in terms of Career Progress Rank* and can boast the fact that 91% of alumni find employment within 3 months. IE business school prides itself in offering MBA programs with a truly global focus and the fact that 87% of students and 54% of faculty members are international (i.e. from outside of Spain) really backs this up.
*Calculated according to changes in the level of seniority and size of company alumni are working in today vs prior to their MBA.
IE scores strongly across all the major subject areas in its MBA programs, from accountancy to marketing, and unsurprisingly scores particularly high for international business.

One of the major attractions of an MBA at IE is the possibility of learning Spanish, a beautiful language and an increasingly important one with the rise of the South American economies. It is also easier than learning the languages of other emerging economies such as China or India. We would certainly recommend that you take the opportunity to learn some Spanish if you can.
