TORONTO, ON – Thursday, February 9, 2012 – The Schulich School of Business at York University has been ranked 20th in the world and #1 in Canada in a global MBA survey conducted by Expansión magazine, a Time Inc. business publication based in Mexico City.
It marks the third straight year in which Schulich has made the world’s top 20 in the Expansión ranking. Schulich placed just behind Kellogg, Stern and Cambridge, and ahead of UCLA, Carnegie Mellon and the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina. Harvard once again placed first overall, with Stanford taking second spot and the London School of Business finishing third. Schulich ranked 9th among business schools outside the US and 12th among business schools in North America.
The Expansión “Best Global MBAs” ranking, established in 2006, rates leading MBA programs from around the world using a broad range of criteria, including Academic Quality, Return on Investment and Global Value. The survey employs a predominantly statistical-based methodology to rank business schools, with points awarded in key areas of measurement such as international scope and orientation, average GMAT, post-MBA average salary percentage increase and faculty research output.
“We’re pleased to once again be rated among the top 20 business schools in the world by a major global ranking this academic year,” said Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth, who noted that The Economist and the Aspen Institute recently ranked Schulich among the top 10 MBA programs in the world (Schulich placed 9th in The Economist’s 2011 global ranking and 2nd in the Aspen 2011 global ranking). “The Expansión ranking is the premier global survey conducted by a Latin American business publication and complements the other major global business school rankings conducted by business publications in the US and Europe.”
Horváth added that the Expansión ranking is also important to Schulich because of the School’s growing focus on the Latin American market and on Mexico in particular. In November of last year, Schulich officially opened a satellite centre in Mexico City that will help recruit students, provide career placement services to alumni, offer executive education programs, support the local Schulich alumni chapter and manage local media relations.
