The prestigious Financial Times yearly ranking 2017 Executive Education Rankings has once again placed IMD among the world’s best business schools in its open programmes by giving it the no. 1 rank for the sixth consecutive year. It has also placed IMD at second in Custom Programmes, with the school jumping up two places from fourth in 2016. IMD remained in second place in the combined custom and open programme rankings, maintaining its spot from last year.
Over the past decade IMD has consistently been among the world’s top business schools in the Financial Times, staying at first place in open programs since 2012 and remaining in the top three for executive education worldwide for the past 6 years.
“IMD’s continued presence at the top of these rankings is a testimonial of our ongoing efforts to strive to live up to our ambition of offering Real Learning and Real Impact, by Developing Leaders, Transforming Organizations and Impacting their future. It is also an encouragement to continue to do our utmost to keep deserving executives’ and partner organizations’ confidence,” said IMD President Jean-François Manzoni.
