The Financial Times has updated its Executive Education Rankings—which rank both open-enrollment and custom programs—for 2015.

For the fourth straight year, Switzerland's IMD Business School leads the open-enrollment ranking. In second place is HEC Paris, and taking third place is Spain's IESE Business School, which roes three spots.

Harvard Business School rose two spots to capture position four. Tied at position number five are University of Chicago's Booth School of Business and the Center for Creative Leadership.

Insead and ESADE Business School are tied for position number seven; the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business and the University of Oxford's Said Business School round out the top ten of the open enrollment ranking.

Notably, Stanford Graduate School of Business dropped out of the top ten, losing seven places to land at position number 15, where it's tied with ESSEC Business School. Other big moves included Brazil's Fundação Dom Cabral, which rose 11 spots to land at position number 12, and Thunderbird School of Global Management at ASU, which lost 12 spots and landed at spot number 26.

In the custom program ranking, Spain's IESE Business School leads the pack, and is followed by HEC Paris and Duke Corporate Education. London Business School and Mannheim Business School round out the top five.

This is the 17th year that The Financial Times has ranked executive education programs. Participating schools must have international accreditation and have earned revenues of at least $2 million from their open or customized programs.
