IMI (Irish Management Institute) has retained its position amongst the world’s top 100 in execution education for Open and Custom programmes, according to the latest Financial Times global rankings.

Ranked 67th in the world for Open programmes, IMI remains the top Irish provider in custom rankings for over a decade.

"The world has shown us recently how important it is to remain close to your customers, and always deliver for them," said Simon Boucher, CEO of IMI.

"Our pivot to virtual delivery in these last few months, and the feedback we’ve been receiving from our clients for those solutions, indicates that IMI will emerge from the COVID-19 crisis as an even stronger and more agile partner."

Professor Patrick O’Shea, President, UCC, welcomed the news.

“In a time when disruption is the norm, we are gratified that IMI remains a stable force for our customers. The Financial Times’ rankings are a touchstone in the industry, and we are delighted to retain our position once again amongst the top in the world," he said.

Professor Thia Hennessy, Dean of Cork University Business School said:

"We in CUBS are delighted that our executive education partners in the IMI have once again received this international endorsement. We work closely with the IMI to provide a quality education experience for students if business from leaving cert age right up to senior executive level.”

These financial times rankings cover IMI’s short executive education programmes, those IMI programmes which are academically validated by UCC and custom programmes. The Financial Times rankings are an important benchmark for the executive education industry. They are based on feedback from clients and the marketplace, on criteria including quality of learning experience, participants in the room, gender diversity, follow up on programmes, facilities and faculty diversity.
