IE Business School is one of the 10 Best Online MBA Programs and is now in first place and has held that position for yet another year. The program received the top rating in the rankings for faculty and instruction as well as employability (a perfect score).
It consists of three main online sessions, one week of global immersion (held in a city other than Madrid, such as Shanghai, Los Angeles, or Mumbai), and three weeks of in-person instruction in Madrid. Working on practical, business-based case studies in interactive small groups is a component of teaching. The program is the shortest in the rankings with an average duration of just 18 months.
The class profile includes 34 percent women, an average of 10 years of work experience, and 86 percent (down from 94 percent) overseas students (up from 8.5 years). The cost of tuition for the 2019–20 academic year is €51,200 (about $57,778).
“IE’s Talent & Careers Department recognize how crucial the professional path is for all our students and alumni,” stated Martin Boehm, dean of IE Business School. A worldwide staff that is still expanding makes up the department and they collaborate closely with more than 3,500 foreign recruiters.
But the business school’s achievement wasn’t limited to the employability criteria; IE also received very high marks for the indicators measuring faculty, instruction, and classroom experience.
The professors for IE’s online MBA program, according to Boehm, “have a distinctly international profile, one that mirrors that of our student body, and they are dedicated to excellence in their research as well as their teaching and professional activities, and they bring this passion and knowledge into the online classroom.
Additionally, the staff is skilled in the unique aspects of teaching online and is focused on establishing relationships and interaction among students.
Boehm said that the Online MBA program’s modest class sizes are another additional benefit to the course and business school overall. None of our courses have more than 35 members, which enables students to form close bonds with their fellow students and gain from a close relationship with our professors. I firmly believe that our success has been attributed to this high-touch strategy.
