REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

It's that time of year again. Time to see where your country stands in IMD's 2015 World Competitiveness ranking.

And there's another ranking we'd like to bring to your attention. As a member of our network, it's one you've helped us achieve. In the Financial Times executive education ranking, IMD is number one worldwide in open enrollment programs for the fourth year in a row!  

So, four times over, we'd like to thank you for being a part of what makes IMD a special place.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
