ESADE in top five business schools in the world, according to the Financial Times

ESADE Business School has jumped three places from fifth to second in the Masters in Finance ranking. Barcelona-based EADA Business School also figures amongst the top 50 in this category.

The Executive Education rankings produced by the Financial Times, a British newspaper, shows the best business schools in the world, according to training programme evaluations. 

France's HEC Paris tops the overall ranking, followed by Spanish's IESE Business School and Switzerland's IMD. ESADE is fifth in the ranking, which combines both the executive and company programme rankings. 

In terms of categories, ESADE's programmes for professionals and companies came 6th and 9th in the ranking, respectively. 

Especially noteworthy was ESADE's Master in Finance that ranked second in the world, with the school's master consolidating its spot amongst the five best in the world, going from fifth to second in the list, and just behind France's prestigious HEC and top in Spain for similar training programmes. 

ESADE says its global fifth position reflects the tremendous progress their training programmes have experienced in recent years in order to find a footing in the top 10 worldwide. According to the school, what stands out is the level of satisfaction amongst programme participants, and this is due to the fact it gives huge importance to student needs. 

ESADE also values the fact that 91% of its Masters in Finance students find work outside Spain, mainly in Germany, the UK, France and Switzerland. 

The FT also places fellow Barcelona business school EADA amongst the top fifty, ranked in 50th place.
