Is Ireland a developing country?

Yesterday, I found the following in the article Top Indian CEO: Most American Grads Are ‘Unemployable’ by Rob Preston of InformationWeek’s Global CIO Blog:

They’re (American graduates) far less inclined than students from developing countries like India, China, Brazil, South Africa, and Ireland to spend their time learning the “boring” details of tech process, methodology, and tools–ITIL, Six Sigma, and the like.

Having spent some time in Ireland recently myself, I can assure you that Ireland is not a developing country. The International Monetary Fund agrees an classifies Ireland as an Advanced Economy.
