World Competitiveness Online

« Back to the products presentation page

The IMD World Competitiveness Online is a unique and comprehensive database on the competitiveness of nations. It includes time series from the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook, the leading annual report published by IMD since 1989, including the IMD World Talent ranking since 2014 and the IMD World Digital Competitiveness Ranking since 2017.

The strength of our methodology lies in the combination of statistical data (2/3) and survey data (1/3) obtained through our exclusive business executives’ opinion survey.

Statistics are updated as soon as new information becomes available. This is ideal if you wish to work with the data. 

Software based on the latest technology provides a powerful and unique user experience.


IMD World Competitiveness Online is an excellent tool for our faculty and students and we highly recommend it as a trusted source offering comparable data.
