MBA Carlos III Madrid

I perfectly agree Jaitego, I find it scary, this habit to pretend to have an accreditation whereas it's only a membership with one of the accreditation organisation. On many websites of unknown programs the whole accreditation situation is presented in such a misleading way that even well educated people like us get confused!
Once you discover this kind of a "trick", sorry, but how can you think afterwards that it is a serious school? For me this is a good reason to drop it immediately...

I think the fact that there are only three schools from Spain that are AACSB accreditated, and IESE is not one of them, shows that it is not a perfect parameter about the quality about the programme. IESE is ranked 16th in Financial Times rankings worldwide.


I totally agree tdpc2, I think to really evaluate a school you have to combine all kinds of information. Accreditation is certainly one major indicator, but of course a good position in the relevant international rankings, especially if the program is ranked in several rankings, is even more important. But when scouting for your MBA you should always look for first hand info by people who actually did the MBA.

By the way, it's a well established fact that IESE is on of the good European schools, which accreditations does it have then?

IESE has two accreditations: Association of MBAs (AMBA) and EQUIS.

I could not find that information on the website. IESE does obviously not need the accreditations to market its MBA. You can always look on the website of the accreditation organizations to check whether a school is accredited. In fact, you should do this. As jaitego pointed out some schools provide misleading information on their accreditations.

You can find IESE in these lists:
http://www.mbaworld.com/index.php?content=accreditedlistall&mm=28&sm=8
http://www.efmd.org/html/Accreditations/link_overview.asp?id=040929sqku&tid=4&ref=ind

For AACSB the link would be http://www.aacsb.edu/accreditation/accreditedmembers.asp

i feel Carlos has its own advantages like AMBA accreditation,which only 5 Spanish schools have,so u will study with ppl who have good work experience rated top spanish school in any website you check,faculty are good, heard likes from MIT n Harvard.+ cost effective

it is not well known may be bcoz it in getafe,and uni started only in 1989, althou jus 1 hour from madrid...so living in madrid would be cool, i am planning to do tht.

disadvantages is, classes r in evening, 5 to 8pm,english version, like UK gives 3 year work permit after MBA, spain does not give, language prob, since ppl speak only spain.

all de best,anyone joining for MBA 2009-2010 and let me know about the same.
