Three Catalan business schools amongst top 50 in the world

Three Catalan business schools were ranked in the fifty best in the world category, according to the the 18th edition of the elaborate analysis by the Financial Times (FT) Executive Education 2016. The three schools that received the highest scores were the Iese Business School (in first place), the Esade Business School (in eighth place) and the Eada Business School Barcelona (in 44th place). The final analysis was a composite of two separate rankings, a combination of Customised Programmes and Open-Enrolment Programmes. The Iese Business School was placed as number one in the Customised Programmes Ranking and number two in the Open-Enrolment Programmes Rankings, “coming closest of any school since the survey was launched in 1999 to topping both rankings”, according to the Financial Times.

Barcelona (CNA).- The Iese Business School, Esade Business School and the Eada Business School Barcelona were ranked among the fifty best business schools in the world, as categorised by the 18th edition of the elaborate analysis by the Financial Times (FT) Executive Education 2016. Iese Business School came in first place by receiving first and second place in the combination of the two separate rankings for Customised Programmes and Open-Enrolment Programmes. This was monumental, as it came “closest of any school since the survey was launched in 1999 to topping both rankings”, according to the Financial Times. Two other top Catalan schools, the Esade Business School and the Eada Business School Barcelona, came in close behind, with the Esade Business School in eighth place, and the Eada Business School in 44th place, both categorised in the combination ranking. The criteria that the FT uses for the rankings are most notably participants’ and clients’ satisfaction, diversity of participants and faculty, and how international the schools’ teaching staff and students are.


The Iese Business School, Esade Business School and the Eada Business School Barcelona are ranked among the top 50 in the world, according to the 18th edition of the elaborate analysis by the Financial Times (FT) Executive Education 2016. The Iese business school is in the number one position, ranked as the top business school in the world according to the Financial Times Executive Education Scoring. The Esade Business School follows in eighth position, ranking among the top ten in the world, while the Eada Business School Barcelona falls in 44th place. The Iese Business school has secured first place by scoring first and second in two distinct surveys by the Financial Times, respectively in the Ranking of Customised Programmes and in the Ranking of Open-Enrolment Programmes. It was through a combination of the two surveys that the Iese was ranked as number one, “coming closest of any school since the survey was launched in 1999 to topping both rankings”, according to the Financial Times.

The rankings are based on different criteria, including participants’ and clients’ satisfaction, diversity of participants and faculty, and how international the schools’ teaching staff and students are. Iese scored highest in the criterion of international clients, but it is “in the top five for 11 out of 15 criteria”, according to information released by the Financial Times. Its academic expertise receives the highest praise: one client responding to the FT survey stated that “after many years” they “continue to be impressed with the freshness of faculty and their approach to each and every programme”, describing the faculty’s knowledge as “exceptional”.

European schools still occupy highest rankings

European schools occupy the top two places of both the rankings for Customised Programmes and Open-Enrolment Programmes, with North American schools taking third place. IMD in Switzerland and Singapore is still ranked as one of the highest schools in Open Programmes, as it secured the number one position
