We are currently going through the painful job search process that is fraught with anxiety. All of us had put our life on hold for one year and chose one of the most intense MBA programs out there. And boy, has it been intense! The challenge in this program is not just the course material. This program systematically makes you question everything you know. In that process, you come out with new realizations about yourself and life in general.
Yesterday, Forbes MBA ranking for year 2017 was released. You can see the details here. I am pleased to announce to the readers of the blog that IMD took the crown for the best MBA in International 1-year MBA category. Return on Investment is one of the biggest criteria for Forbes ranking. ROI is a good proxy for career success of our Alumni and the role played by IMD in providing them the requisite tools. According to Forbes survey, 5 year MBA gain is 194700$ with payback in 2.3 years. Those are some pretty impressive numbers. Obviously, my classmates and I are thrilled at the ranking. Below is a quick summary of Forbes results (Thanks to Bruno)
Cheers to the MBA 2012 class and everyone in IMD MBA program, who made this ranking possible.
