REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

We are proud to share the news. IMD’s position as one of the world’s leading business schools was reinforced this month with the release of the Financial Times 2012 Executive Education rankings. IMD is ranked first in executive education outside the US (Financial Times 2008-2012).

IMD is also now ranked first worldwide in open programs (Financial Times 2012). Offering more than 20 programs for executive development, we aim to deliver the best educational experience by staying on top of business trends. For example, most recently our Program for Executive Development (PED) was redesigned to create a bridge between visioning and building your future.

Many thanks to the entire IMD community for keeping us on top.
Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
