ESADE's Master International Management once again ranked in top 10 by Financial Times

ESADE Business School has risen to 8th place in the Financial Times ranking of Masters in Management, thanks to the international mobility, career advancement and salary increase associated with the programme

The latest Financial Times ranking of Masters in Management, published today, has once again placed ESADE's Master International Management (MIM) in the global top 10, specifically in 8th place. The CEMS Global Alliance's Master in International Management (MIM), meanwhile, took 9th place in the ranking. CEMS is an international institution comprising 30 of the world's most prestigious business schools, and ESADE is the only institution to offer the CEMS MIM in Spain.

Among the factors that contributed to the ESADE MIM's excellent showing are the school's high ranks in international mobility (4th worldwide), career advancement of graduates (9th) and salary increase (10th). 

The British business daily also highlighted the high percentage of international students in the ESADE programme. Specifically, the composition of the ESADE MIM student body is as follows: Europe (79%), Asia (9%), Latin America (5%), North America (4%), Middle East (2%) and Africa (1%). This cultural diversity is combined with a broad range of experience and knowledge, as 64% of students have a background in management, 15% in engineering, 10% in economics, 7% in the humanities and 2% in science. 

According to Josep Franch, Dean of ESADE Business School, the fact that the ESADE MIM has appeared in the Financial Times top 10 Masters in Management is “an important acknowledgment of the programme, which recently celebrated it tenth anniversary. It was also the first of ESADE's seven Master of Science (MSc) programmes, which today have a total of more than 500 students enrolled.” He added: “The MSc programmes are specifically designed for recent university graduates or those who have limited professional experience. They provide a high level of training, specialisation and professionalisation.” The MIM's solid showing in the Financial Times ranking comes during a boom in international demand for MSc programmes. At ESADE, enrolment in the MSc programmes has increased by 30% over the past three years. 

A new generation of digital entrepreneurs and leaders 

With the emergence of new technologies and the development of big data, the need for multi-faceted professionals with expertise in information technology, mathematics, statistics and business is on the rise. In response to this growing demand, ESADE recently launched the MSc in Business Analytics (MIBA), a Master of Science designed for recent graduates. This aim of this programme is to train professionals with new profiles who are capable of combining technology with strategy, marketing, finance and operations, as well as organisational transformation. During the programme, the participants visit Silicon Valley to meet with executives of the world's top digital firms and have the opportunity to collaborate with Amazon, Microsoft, Santander and Telefónica, among other companies. The programme's curriculum allows students to choose between three different paths – Big Data & Data Analytics in Finance, Digital Marketing Analytics & Industry 4.0, and Internet of Things & Smart Cities – and offers the opportunity to obtain certifications from Amazon and other platforms.

Starting this year, the students in ESADE's widely recognised MIM, as well as those in the MIBA, the other MSc programmes in management, the Master in Business Administration (MBA) and the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) will have the chance to expand their digital training thanks to the school's agreement with Ironhack, a leading international web development training centre. As part of their training, students in these ESADE programmes participate in one of three Ironhack courses: the Web Development Programme (part- or full-time), in which students learn to code and build digital products; the UX/UI Design Programme, which focuses on design thinking; and User-Centred Design.
