REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

Where did your country rank in IMD's 2014 World Competitiveness Yearbook? The recent ranking marks the yearbook's 26th edition, continuing the World Competitiveness Center's legacy as pioneers in the areas of competitiveness and world economies.

In this issue we also bring you news on another ranking at the heart of IMD. For the third consecutive year, IMD is proud to be ranked number one worldwide in open enrollment programs in the Financial Times 2014 Executive Education Rankings. Yes, we did it again! We couldn't have done it without you and we are proud to have you in our network.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
