INCAE, January 30, 2012. INCAE Business School improved its position in the annual ranking published today of the top 100 MBA programs worldwide, as determined by the Financial Times.FTBusSchool2012_RGB.JPG

INCAE ranked 76, compared to last year´s position of 77.

Stanford Graduate School of Business, Harvard Business School and the University of Pennsylvania-Wharton, obtained the first three places in the ranking, respectively. All three are from the United States. London School of Business which had achieved first place in 2010 and 2011, dropped to fourth.

The INCAE MBA program is the highest rated program in Spanish speaking Latin America.

As noted by the INCAE's Dean of Masters, Professor Guillermo Selva, INCAE surpassed a group of internationally renowned schools both in the final ranking and in positioning within some major categories. For example, INCAE ranked 23rd in value received for investment made in the MBA, and 12th for career advancement. INCAE was also recognized for international experience, ranking 16th taking into account the living experience, 50% international faculty, and 62% international students

The Financial Times carries out various business school rankings every year. INCAE is ranked in three of them: the MBA, published in January (which was announced today); Executive Education, published in May; and the Global Executive MBA, published in October.

In all three rankings released last year, INCAE ranked among the top 100 business schools in the world. Only 23 schools in the world were ranked in all three of the rankings.

"We are proud to be recognized for another year as one of the best MBA programs in the world," said, Arturo Condo, the President of INCAE. "The recognition of a world-class publication like the Financial Times is important to us, not only because it reaffirms our position as the best business school in the region, but also the best school with a global perspective for Latin America."

Condo said that INCAE plans to continue innovating through the school's "Reinventing the MBA for Our Region" Initiative. "Latin America is destined to play a global leadership role in the coming decades. The traditional MBA programs are not producing the leaders we need for the future. We are committed to remain at the forefront of innovations for the training of leaders for the region," he said.

This Financial Times' ranking is made based on data from two main sources: the graduates and the schools. Surveys are submitted by graduates who completed their MBA three years ago to evaluate its effect on career progression and salary. The three main areas assessed are: salaries of graduates and their professional development, diversity and international reach of the school, and the MBA and research capacity of each school.
