The International MBA at EADA Business School has been ranked number 62 in The Economist Full-Time MBA Ranking, which is the global ranking published today by the well-known British newspaper, The Economist. The EADA programme has moved up 34 places compared to its previous classification, and is now placed among the best International MBAs in the world. 

The MBA programme offers a global vision of companies. It is designed for graduates who have a minimum of 3 years professional experience and aims to help them make a qualitative leap in their professional career. The ranking was compiled using various parameters such as career opportunities, participants’ salary, participant diversity and quality of faculty, among others (see table). To be included in the ranking, The Economist requires all institutions to hold the  EQUIS or AACSB accreditation.

According to the Dean of EADA Business School, Jordi Díaz, “the progress made by the International MBA in The Economist’s ranking is a historic result after more than 15 years of EADA’s participation in world rankings and of particular significance given the current context.”

The improvement in this year’s position coincides with the publication of 2020 Better World MBA Ranking, released by the Corporate Knights organisation. This ranking places EADA Business School among the 40 top schools in the world as a result of integrating sustainable development in its MBA programmes, faculty research on sustainability issues and the gender and ethnic diversity of its faculty. Specifically, EADA becomes the best-positioned Spanish business school in the ranking.
