REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

We did it again! For a second consecutive year, IMD is proud to be ranked number one worldwide in open enrollment programs. These latest FT rankings also underline IMD's consistently excellent performance over time. For the last six years (2008-2013), the school ranks first on average in executive education outside the US.

IMD's World Competitiveness Center released its 25th Anniversary edition of the World Competitiveness Yearbook, including a ranking of nations. See where your country ranks in this year's results.

And, have you created the movie of your life yet? It's not too late! IMD's MY STORY is extended through June, including the dream gallery, which gives you a chance to win customized personal development at IMD.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
