Summary and extracts

1 Market overview

1.1 Definition and presentation

Business schools are institutions of higher education that primarily teach business and management. They are distinguished by paid training and by specific courses and specialties more or less recognized in the working world. Degrees can be initial training (before working life), and continuing education (returning to study after one or more initial experiences).

Globally, the business school market continues to grow rapidly. First of all, the number of students in the world continues to increase, which favors the emergence and development of business schools. In addition, the curriculum, which is highly oriented towards integration into professional life and exit salaries, is popular with students and parents. The largest growth in student numbers has been in Asia and Oceania, where the student population has grown from 64.4 million in 2007 ade 64.4 million in 2007 to 112.2 million in 2017, while forecasts point to 169.7 million students in this region by 2027.

In Spain, there are many prestigious business schools with internationally recognized recruitment and teaching capabilities such as: ESADE Business School, IE Business School, IESE Business School, EADA Business School, etc .The business school market has been strongly affected by the crisis of the 1980s, which has led to a decline in the number of international students, especially from non-EU countries. To finance ambitious programs, the number of trained students is a key variable in the ranking race and schools have had to redirect their recruitment towards neighboring countries. However, Spain maintains a key position in terms of attracting students from Latin America.
