2012 Full-time MBA rankings

IESE is the leading business school in Europe and the ninth best in the world, according the latest ranking of MBA programs published in the British magazine The Economist. First place on the list is occupied by Chicago Booth, which is followed by three other top U.S. institutions: Darden, Tuck and Harvard. 

According to The Economist, IESE’s MBA program stands out for the salaries attained by its graduates – an average of more than $126,000 per year, the highest of all the schools featured – and the increase (153 percent) this represents with respect to what they previously earned.

This year’s clear winners were U.S. business schools, which held eight of the top ten places. The ranking is based on a survey of more than 19,000 MBA students and graduates, as well as data provided by the different schools and results obtained in previous editions of the ranking.
