Leading this classification are the HEC Paris Business School (France), the London Business School (United Kingdom) and Insead (France). Other Spanish institutions appear in the ranking, business schools such as the IESE, ESCP, IE, Esade, Eada and TBS.

In addition to the quality and variety of training programmes, the ranking also takes into account factors such as graduates’ salary increase and participants’ satisfaction. In order to obtain the classification, the British publication takes an average of the five main classifications undertaken throughout the year (MBA, EMBA, Master in Management, Open Executive Education and Custom Programmes).

The UC3M is a Spanish public university which excels in teaching, research and innovation. It features among the top 35 universities in the world in the QS Top 50 Under 50 ranking.
