The Irish Management Institute (IMI) has moved up in its position as the only business school in Ireland to be globally ranked among international providers of Customised Executive Education in this year’s Financial Times (FT) Global Rankings.

The IMI has moved up list  from 69th to 64th rank in the providers of executive execution in the world. It is the seventh year in succession that the IMI have been placed among the top global providers of uniquely tailored, company-specific executive education.

Speaking about the FT Rankings announcement, Dr Simon Boucher, CEO of IMI said: “IMI’s inclusion, once again, in this prestigious global ranking is testament to our commitment to designing and delivering truly innovative learning and development strategies that produce real business results.

“Having a world-class learning provider based in Ireland is important for Ireland and Irish business competing globally. This ranking, which is largely determined by feedback from our clients, demonstrates the high regard in which IMI is held across industry on a national and international level.”

IMI has achieved this global ranking against a backdrop of increased competition from high profile international business schools, with several new and bigger entrants joining the rankings this year including: National University of Singapore Business School, Peking University of China and the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, India.
