Business administration degrees: IMD offers the world’s best business administration degrees

Business administration degrees are widely offered by universities and business schools around the world. Clearly, not all of them have the same cachet. And frankly, there are only a relative few business administration degrees that will deliver outstanding return on investment.

Business administration degrees such as IMD’s Executive MBA are designed to build your operational and leadership skills in order to move you forward in your career. The program has more behind it than just the prestige of a Swiss-based institution noted for its excellence. The EMBA offered by IMD is one of the most highly sought after business administration degrees in the world. One of the reasons is that IMD is 100% focused on executive education for global leaders. So it is in tune with top managers who understand the importance of pursuing business management education — but who don’t want to quit their job while doing so.

World-class standards
The IMD Executive Master of Business Administration is offered by one of the top business schools in the world. Independent authorities such as Forbes, The Economist and the Financial Times have ranked the schools’ programs among the best on the planet.

In 2017, the Financial Times rated IMD number one in the world for its open programs. The same year it ranked IMD tops for executive education outside the US for the fifth year in a row. No small accomplishment. But one of the reasons IMD consistently scores well in such rankings is that it constantly innovates and updates its programs. Its business administration degrees are designed to meet the latest demands in an ever-evolving business climate. IMD uses a customized and effective approach to best meet your needs.

The Executive MBA: Taking you to the next level
IMD’s Executive MBA takes you far beyond the basics. Expect to be stimulated, challenged and rewarded. This is an action-oriented program focused on:

  • Business fundamentals
  • Globalization
  • Leadership
  • Strategy
  • Execution


Designed for highly motivated business leaders with intellectual ability and global experience, IMD’s Executive MBA is geared to delivering immediate results. You will hone your skills and gain immediate benefits for your organization through company-specific assignments. This is about transforming knowledge into powerful tools you can put to work right away.

Tackling the reality of globalization and the increasingly complex, inter-connected forces shaping your company’s future is a central part of the program. Abstract, ivory tower theories are markedly absent from the curriculum in favour of a hands-on approach. IMD’s Executive MBA involves visits to different areas of the world that offer unique insights into the new economy. Trips to Silicon Valley, China and India provide an eye-opening perspective on how leading-edge companies operate in the global marketplace.

Redesigned with busy executives in mind
The program has recently been restructured with your interests in mind. Top global leaders know the value of executive leadership programs but they are not in a position to stay away from their offices for an extended period. IMD’s flexible approach allows for maximum learning with minimal time away from your desk. A state-of-the-art distance-learning program allows you to spend as little as 10.5 weeks away from your company over a 15-month period.
