Forbes has again ranked IMD's MBA number one among one-year MBA programmes outside the US. The Forbes ranking measures return on investment based on "5-year MBA gain" (for IMD this is the MBA Class of 2007), and separates US from non-US programmes. The rankings are published every two years, and in 2011 Forbes also ranked IMD number one among one-year MBA programmes outside the US.
"We are again extremely proud to lead the Forbes ranking," said Martha Maznevski, IMD MBA programme director. "Congratulations to our graduates - this is really a great accomplishment."
The 2013 Forbes ranking reinforces IMD's consistent performance in delivering some of the world's best educational programmes. The Financial Times ranked IMD number one in open programmes world?wide for 2012 and 2013, and for the last six years, the school ranks number one on average with the Financial Times in executive education outside the US.
