IMI have climbed 8 places in the Financial Times European Business School Rankings, as a result of a strong performance in their Open and Custom programmes.

IMI are now ranked 68th in the European Business School Rankings, coming in at 34th for Open programmes and 30th for Custom programmes. They were also ranked 11th in Europe for the standard and variety of their international faculty.

‘The European Business School Rankings are an international mark of quality, and IMI’s progress up them is a verification of the work we do for our clients, and the impacts we have on their professional and personal lives’ said Simon Boucher, CEO of IMI.

These European Business Schools Rankings measures performance across several metrics including quality of open programmes (covering both IMI’s short executive education programmes and those IMI programmes which are academically validated by UCC), as well as the customised solutions IMI provides to businesses.

Professor Patrick O’Shea, President of UCC, congratulated IMI on its ranking success. “This progress in the European Business School ranking clearly shows the quality behind what IMI deliver each and every day to the business community in Ireland.  We at UCC are incredibly proud of the achievement, and once again move forward to developing the Cork University Business School as a global leader in business education and research.’

The move up the European Business Schools rankings continues the success stories coming out of IMI. After becoming the highest new entrant in last year’s  European Business School rankings, this new achievement follows IMI becoming the first Irish executive education provider to be simultaneously listed on both the Customised and Open global rankings.
